“I Turned 40, So Hangovers Now Last, Until I Die”- Angela Barnes

If someone had told me there was a clip of, not just one, but two of the most exciting female comedians at the Fringe talking about everything from hangovers to swimming, I probably would’ve thrown hot Bovril into their lying face and denounced the prospect of such a magical thing existing as being the ramblings of a deeply disturbed mind…Having seen that the clip very much exists, however, I would’ve quickly apologised for my rash behaviour and helped towel off whatever of the savioury concoction remained on their distressed face.* 

Check out this clip of Kiri Pritchard-McLean chatting to Newsjack host Angela Barnes.

 *This rambling introduction should in no way be interpreted as some misguided promotion for delicious, beefy Bovril.
