Who is she?
The writer-director of acclaimed sketch group Gein’s Family Giftshop, Pritchard-McLean is an accomplished stand-up with a cutting wit.
What’s the show about?
A long, hard look at the hoary “are women funny?” debate. Long, because it’s about an hour, and hard because occasionally she messes up a joke, inadvertently proving the stereotype right.
A farmer’s daughter, Pritchard-McLean knew what a prolapse was aged eight and how to fix it with bailing twine. She also saw someone shot in the eye. At pony club.
