The Skinny
A critically acclaimed hour of hilarious original songs, killer stand-up, and a big book of things that are actually good.
‘Actually, Good is actually rather wonderful’

In 2022, she started asking people what they like. The answers were simple and complex, hilarious and beautiful. Cloves. Fancy hotel foyers. Seeing a cow and yelling, “Cow!”.

This is a show about the little things that make the big hard things manageable, and pointing at the bits of the world that make you yell, “Wow! Isn’t this great?!”.
