Hotly anticipated debut hour from BBC New Comedy Award winner and star of Channel 4's Stand Up for the Week. Angela is getting on, and is thinking about the big stuff, you know, life, love, family, work and death. And how rubbish she is at all of it. 'Hers is a world-weary and devastatingly matter-of-fact outlook on the world that really makes her stand out. Like all the best comics, she manages to articulate a singular perspective while making it seem like a universal truth' (Guardian). 'Beautifully paced' (Chortle.co.uk). **** (ThreeWeeks).

Star of Channel 4's Stand Up For The Week, Angela Barnes, is bringing her eagerly awaited debut solo show, You Can't Take It With You, to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2014. The 2011 BBC New Comedy Award winner will be performing daily at the Pleasance Cellar from 30th July - 24th August at 6pm.
You Can't Take It With You gives audiences an insight into how Angela is getting on. She is thinking about the big stuff, you know, life, love, family, work and death. And how rubbish she is at all of it.
After a career in health and social care, Angela Barnes decided to realise a long held ambition and give comedy a go. Within a couple of years she had won the 2011 BBC New Comedy Award and became a finalist at the 2011 Latitude Festival New Act of the Year competition. Since 2011, Angela, and her witty world view, has been catapulted onto numerous radio and television shows including appearances on Channel 4's Stand Up For The Week as a weekly regular, on BBC Three's Russell Howard's Good News, Russell Kane's Whistle Stop Tour (BBC Radio 2), and BBC Radio 4's The Now Show.
