NOMINEE: LASTMINUTE.COM EDINBURGH COMEDY AWARDS – BEST NEWCOMER 2016
In her first solo show Michelle dives deep into her calculated, fantastically absurd premises, taking the audience on an increasingly personal and occasionally political journey through how she sees the world. Whether it is sports, gender, dating or politics, by the end of the show she’s sold the audience on her hilarious yet twisted logic.
Michelle is an on-air contributor and writer for Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. She was named on Vulture’s list of 50 Comedians You Should Know, one of the Top 10 Funniest Women in NYC by Time Out and, most recently, to Rolling Stone’s list of the 25 funniest people on Twitter right now.
As seen on Live at the Apollo, Frankie Boyle’s US Election Special, and 8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown.
Running Time: 60 mins
Age Recommendation: 16+

‘Wolf has seen her stock rise through the roof with her Fringe debut, a solo show packed with provocative insights and drum-tight quips. A major find.’

★★★★ Mail on Sunday
