Win Two Tickets to Michelle Brasier’s comedy show in Leeds
WIN two tickets to Michelle Brasier’s comedy show REFORM at the Leeds City Varieties on 22nd May 2024
Have you ever ended up being the emergency contact for a stranger who tried to scam you out of your money? No? Michelle Brasier has. REFORM is her stand-up comedy show all about it!
Edinburgh Festival Favourite and “the girl one” from Aunty Donna’s online viral sketches, Michelle Brasier is delighted to be embarking on her first UK stand up tour. Following a sell-out run at the Edinburgh festival in August 23, Reform is coming to Leeds in May 2024.
This show is a cautionary tale laced with friendship, radical empathy, redemption, kindness and understanding of those who have done us wrong. This theatrical hour of storytelling and original music has audiences cringing at every naïve exchange between victim and conman and shouting ‘No! Stop!’ before being swept along for the ride and completely understanding how this unique relationship developed. In Michelle’s words, it’s about “seeing the best in people even though they’re probably, mostly sh*t.”
During lockdown, Michelle went looking for a Pilates reformer online. What she found was Jacob, a young man out to con unsuspecting victims of their money. This is a true story of an online scam, but it’s not one whereby the witty comic takes down the swindler and gives him a telling off through the medium of jokes. Oh no. When the exercise equipment didn’t show up, Michelle didn’t call the police, instead she gave her scammer the opportunity to open up. Curious as to how a person ends up a scammer, Michelle, a stand-out archetype of the ‘caring woman’ took an active interest in Jacob who was surprised at how much he really just needed someone to talk to.
Reform is not only an inspiring tale but an unbelievably true one.
