Joanne McNally’s authentic comedy feels a bit like sitting with a mate in the pub and laughing for an hour whilst they tell you about their recent antics.
Her improv and quick wit is at the heart of her hour long set at the Assembly George Square Theatres; tackling topics like – how to pull off an Edinburgh comedy show without having a mental illness, she quickly has the audience in hysterics and warming to her boisterous charm.
She connects with the room over shared millennial experiences of Tinder dating, money troubles, living at home for waaay too long, struggling to be a good feminist whilst she searches for a rich husband to solve all of her problems, and making some bad investments in Zara. Extremely relatable.
Wine Tamer doesn’t seem to have a gimmick or a theme, and it’s not a journey of self-discovery or an ode to the #metoo movement like many other female comics this year have successfully executed. But what it is, is an extremely funny easy-going hour, and you will likely leave wishing you could go for a bottle of wine with this Dublin lass so you can hear more, and get involved in her antics yourself.
