Press coverage

Full press release

Foster's Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer Winner 2010 Roisin Conaty - Russell Howard's Good News (BBC Three), Victoria Wood's Angina Monologues (Sky 1) and Dave's One Night Stand (Dave) - returns to Edinburgh, after her triumphant debut sellout run at the Fringe last Year.

This year's show; Destiny's Dickhead sees Roisin questioning her fate and stressing over the many roles each of us are destined to play in life after all, one persons son is another persons 'Pervy Dave'. Roisin is a sister, a comedian and will eat anything with jalapenos on, but to one women in Camden Market she will always be 'long tall Sally'? A nickname that makes NO BLOODY SENSE. With so much choice and so many paths seemingly available to us all, our lives are often spent longing for things and people that are not part of the plan. Or are they? Maybe, if you see a black cat wearing a trilby definitely send the text! Roisin doesn't want any more tedious choices blocking her destiny. When there are 20 different shower gels promising varying levels of Nirvana, is it any wonder Roisin has never finished War and Peace. What affects us more in the end? The carefully chosen degree or, a drunken conversation in a pizza restaurant? Are we all just a product of our environment or, can we truly shape our destiny like a pair of unruly eyebrows? Roisin is still single, dropping h's and has never owned a brolley for longer then 4 hours.
