Join Belfast based comedians Heather Anderson & Leo Lardie for a hilarious Sunday afternoon pick-me-up! They’ll squeeze every last juicy bit from their experiences of mental (ill) health to serve up a deliciously sharp yet somehow sweet glass of stand-up comedy for all to enjoy!
Please, note this event includes Adult Content.
This event is part of Bounce Festival 2023 organised by University of Atypical for Arts and Disability. University of Atypical’s main funder is The National Lottery through the Arts Council of Northern Ireland made possible by Lottery Players.
Bounce Festival 2023 is also funded by Belfast City Council.
Heather Anderson, originally from Carrickfergus (in fact, still from Carrickfergus), has been leaving people North and South of the border in stitches since 2019 with her chaotic approach to everything from dating to simply being alive in this world. Join her as she talks a lot of nonsense and inevitably throws in some high kicks for good measure.
Leo Lardie got roped into stand-up comedy originally for a fundraiser to support the ‘Love Equality’ marriage equality campaign, and has been delighting audiences queer and straight alike since 2017. He’s gigged across Northern Ireland but you’ll regularly find him MC-ing on the last Friday of the month at his queer & trans stand-up night ‘The Laugh Hole’ at Paperxclips in West Belfast. Considered one of the most reliably funny comics on the circuit, underneath his warm and playful stage presence is an urgent and earnest exploration of identity, love and pain. His material is a powerful dose of queer joy and audiences love him.
