Edinburgh Comedy Award Nominee 2017

The award winning stand-up and star of BBC Radio Four’s Mae Martin’s Guide to 21st Century Sexuality presents her debut UK tour. Mae Martin is comedy’s most naturally charismatic young storyteller, fresh from sell-out seasons in Australia, Edinburgh and London.

In her new show Dope, she examines a lifetime of obsessions, fandom and addiction and shines a light on that one weird shrimp we all have in our brains that is happy to pursue short-term pleasure despite long-term consequences.

As seen on BBC3’s Russell Howard’s Good News, BBC2’s Live From The BBC, Comedy Central and more. As heard on BBC Radio Four’s The Now Show, as well as her own award-nominated series in 2016.
