Star of BBC Scotland's 'Up For It!' and BBC Radio Scotland, Ashley Storrie returns to the Fringe with a raw and hysterical show about mental health and the ways she uses humour to overcome her pain.

“A perfect hour of comedy… relentlessly funny”
Broadway World


“Ashley Storrie’s forthrightness is a tonic and should be mandatory viewing. Make sure you arrive early to gain an extra 15 minutes of material as this funny firecracker welcomes in the crowd.”

August 20, 2019  The List
Colourful and controversial routines from compelling act.

Bantering with the crowd as they stream through the door, Ashley Storrie is quick to build a rapport, getting the laughs flowing before the show even begins. Hysterical is a one-hour set which reflects on depression, autism, dating and Beauty and the Beast, all of which has the audience hanging on Storrie's every word.

The comic isn't afraid to talk about the difficulties she's had in the past, telling the gathering how she spent the ten years before becoming a stand-up doing absolutely nothing. Storrie makes light work of it, though, cracking jokes left, right and centre, peppered throughout with witty side-notes as she gets distracted by some of the intrusive thoughts that make up a significant portion of the set.

A warm and engaging storyteller, Storrie doesn't shy away from controversial topics (or a bit of colourful language), and her frankness is truly refreshing; never more so than when she tells the audience the story behind her decision to become a stand-up. Storrie is celebrating her fifth or sixth year (she can't quite remember) at the Fringe, but with a performance like this, there's no doubt that she'll be a sell-out act for many more years to come. Click Here

It’s hard to come to terms with the fact that Ashley Storrie has not been on the comedy scene for very long in real terms, okay a venture into it when she was barely a teenager and of course with her mother a stalwart she has been in the environment since, so I suppose it isn’t hard to understand why Ashley exudes all the skills, total confidence, has stage presence and a wicked turn in material.

She is on stage from the very start, welcoming her crowd, directing them to seats, chatting away making everyone at home before we get to the meat of her show, and it is a sumptuous feast.

Ms Storrie’s material is wide ranging, explaining the derivation of her show title, her family, the new dog, thinking she had serious health issues, visits to GP, porn watching, being turned on by the weird, Twitter trolls all give her topics to showcase her excellent writing and comedic skills, something that is grasped with both hands and served to a enthusiastic packed out house.

Her career is going pretty well. A regular radio show, a recommissioning of a TV series she co-presents, and of course playing sold out Fringe shows point to a bright future for this talented Glaswegian. Oh and how does she create those noises used to enhance her closing routine.

Being an unticketed Free Festival show the queues build up long before start time. Get there early to ensure a seat, you should not miss out on this hour of top quality comedy. Click Here
