Adverts, books, CDs, work colleagues and self-help Gurus. They all have one thing in common. They all try to bully you into being happy. Glaswegian comedian Martha McBrier is taking a stand and refusing to be told how to be happy. Somebody needs to.

Fed up of being told to smile because it might never happen? Come and celebrate misery with other like mind people. Has your dog died? Has your partner left you? Don't smile because the office idiot told you to cheer up. Frown, it's already happened.

A show about a woman who found her love of Country and Western music, a genre of music where heartbreak and misery are celebrated.

Put on a country and western song. Have a cry and say NO to happiness bullies. But most of all, work out your own way of being happy and avoid throwing yourself off the Tallahatchie Bridge.
