Ahead of her debut UK tour, Arabella Weir comes to the Pleasance to try out her first ever solo show.

The mother of all confessional shows from the bestselling author and star of The Fast Show and Two Doors Down.

Does My Mum Loom Big In This? is for everyone who’s had a mother or been a mother, featuring hair-raising hilarious true stories from Arabella’s dysfunctional childhood and her life as a single working mother.

Devastatingly funny, excruciatingly honest and definitely embarrassing for all of Arabella’s relatives, not to mention herself, this is a helter-skelter tour of appalling – and appallingly funny – maternal behaviour.

“Arabella Weir has a unique knack of making appalling (and true) stuff funny” Sandi Toksvig

“Arabella Weir is simply sensational” Joanna Lumley

“She’s a mother, she’s a comedy godmother, and her show is mother******* marvellous” Miranda Hart

“Mirth, motherhood, misery. Arabella is brilliantly funny in her new show” Paul Whitehouse
