Stand-up comedy at the Driftwood Spars - Harriet Dyer plus support.
We are delighted to welcome Harriet Dyer back to the Driftwood Spars to perform more of her stand up comedy.
Harriet Dyer (BBC3, BBC Live at The Fringe, BBC Radio 4, BBC Knock Knock, BBC Ouch, Absolute Radio, The Russell Howard Hour) is an award winning comedian, writer and mental health advocate.
Harriet has been a full time comic since 2013. She’s had numerous critically acclaimed shows, works for the majority of big clubs and festivals, regularly gigs overseas, and prides herself in being totally original! – An experience to behold, if you will.
Harriet has bipolar disorder and does a lot of comedy work around mental health. Her debut, solo, hour-long show Barking At Aeroplanes at Edinburgh Fringe about her struggles and adventures with mental health received critical acclaim, resulting in a tour.
Harriet was touched by the reaction the show received, with audience members expressing how much of an important show it was and how refreshing it was to hear someone talk so openly about mental health. This led to Harriet creating the award winning, monthly mental health comedy night Barking Tales which is beloved by its many regular attendees.
Most recently Harriet’s written a book about her life to critical acclaim, and she’s been one of the main writers on both seasons on Jon Richardson’s Channel Hopping.
