About Sophie McCartney: Tired & Tested

Guidance  16+

From perky tits, to killing nits, join award-winning comedian Sophie McCartney as she ventures into the perilous world of parenthood in this rollicking new stand-up show set to test pelvic floor muscles to the max(i)pad.


Best known for her wickedly accurate insights into adulting, Sophie thought by the time she
became a ‘proper’ grown up (someone who likes olives) life would all be figured out. How
very wrong she was. Feeling like an out-of-depth-teen trapped in theslightly sagging skin
suit of a 30-something mum-of-three, why did no one tell her what toreallyexpect after she
was expecting? Will her belly button ever go back to ‘normal’? Why do you need a degree in
collapsing travel cots? And does she have what ittakes to stop her current cereal eaters
from becoming future serial killers?


Hold onto your ‘Apple Bottom jeans and boots with the fur’ as you follow Sophie on her
evolution from non-maternal ‘noughties’ wild child to the highs and lows of being with child.
Mating, birthing, body changes, school WhatsApp groups, overbearing nutjob love, and still
not being able to handle your booze on a night out; nothing is off limits for this postparthun.
