“Ripe with comedy. A unique perspective: sharp and dark, and refreshingly unsentimental” – Stephanie Merritt, Observer
Acclaimed stand-up comic and accomplished TV writer Meryl O’Rourke, revels in her bitterness. A potty mouthed potty trainer, she has delighted comedy audiences with her cheeky routines of dysfunctionality.
She supported Frankie Boyle for part of his last tour, at his request. She also supported him at the Hammersmith Apollo. In his book ‘Work! Consume! Die!’ he calls Meryl “Inspiringly funny”.
Her solo stand-up show Bad Mother… was a hit at Edinburgh and Brighton festivals. Directed by Foster’s Comedy Award nominee Thom Tuck, it received 5-star reviews and was The Times’ Critic’s Choice.
“★★★★★ Truly astonishing show…a must see” The New Current
“★★★★ Her devastatingly direct show stands out for it’s bold, boundary-breaking nature…the shocking casualness of her delivery is spot on.” Jewish Chronicle
“★★★★ Very funny. Tightly written, deftly performed, intimate storytelling and packed with punchlines” TheLatest
“★★★★ Meryl has a natural wit that few possess” ScotsGay
