Desiree Burch: This is Evolution – Edinburgh Preview, Funny Women Festival 2016
Get ready for the winner of 2015's Funny Women Award and the 2015 Fringe First Award
Desiree Burch investigates social and personal evolution through sex, drugs, spirituality and an embarrassingly prolonged adolescence. You can Win Friends And Influence People, discover the Secret and give your Soul all the Chicken Soup it wants – but do people fundamentally change for the better, or are the opposable thumbs we use to swipe right the best we’ll do? Extensive experimentation with the new finds Desiree in a rut of the same old, trying to discover how people overcome themselves. A hilarious look at self-help and self-imposed helplessness. Change may be constant, but it's really f***ing slow. Recommended for ages 16 and up. Valid ID required
"Smart, original, refreshing, and maybe even necessary."
