Ashleigh Clarke is a live wire comic and raconteur who will fill your evening with unbridled laughter around complex ideas on infertility, post-feminism, class systems, dating, sexuality and mental illness. This left-of-centre, late-night offering is the sum of a lifetime of thoughts swimming around in a single female adult brain, that keep her up at night.

All essential topics are covered. How important is a man’s choice of sunglasses in his online dating profile? (very). Are all dogs actually overrated? (yes). And should they probably be indefinitely outlawed from society? (also yes). And is it unethical to only date single-parent widowers because one is clucky and infertile, and adoption is so expensive? (ummm... no?)

Sardonic, fantastical, morbid and obscene, Ashleigh is a comedian by default as a coping mechanism because, as with most things in this life, you have to laugh or else you'll cry.
