WINNER: BEST NEWCOMER 2017 Edinburgh Comedy Award

Laying an egg every day, a woman faces the decision: to raise it or eat it. Natalie Palamides, LA based comedian, Upright Citizens’ Brigade performer and Just for Laughs vet, explores motherhood with absurd dilemmas, silly routines and surreal physical comedy. A melodrama of yolks, shells and funerals – Palamides brings her playful and cunning character to life in the madness of Laid.

Co-devised and directed by Edinburgh Comedy Award winner Doctor Brown.
