Women have been called many things when looking for The One. Rachel Jackson’s show, Bunny Boiler, plays on this fact, reflectively looking at how difficult it is to find love in this day and age and taking the audience through a stream of hilarious anecdotes.
Jackson, the former face of Irn-Bru, has had a hard time finding love, going through a rather colourful dating life: from being in an abusive relationship with a cult leader, to having a fling with a UKIP supporter. She finds the humour in her darker days, creating relatable comedy that will have you crying with laughter.
Still, her show is more than just about breakups and side splitting sexual stories. Bunny Boiler is about accepting who you are, whether that be quirky, desperate, paranoid or needy, and about learning to live life like there is no tomorrow.
Jackson is a genius behind the microphone, deserving of every success she encounters. Her stage presence and likable personality makes you fall in love with her positive way of thinking. If you are looking for a full hour of non-stop laughter, you can bet Jackson will deliver.
