Full press release
The average Brit apologises 1.9 million times in their lifetime. Why are we always saying sorry when we're not sorry at all? And why are women particularly prone to pointless apologising?
In a show based on her experiences as a parent, daughter, feminist, self-consciously middle class person and reformed serial apologiser, Viv Groskop argues that enough is enough: it's time to say sorry to the lady once and for all. And this time you had better mean it.
Viv Groskop is a writer, broadcaster and stand-up comedian. She is the author of the mid-life crisis memoir I Laughed, I Cried: How One Woman Took On Stand-Up and (Almost) Ruined Her Life, which reached No.1 in the Amazon Comedy Bestsellers Chart and went on to inspire her sell-out show in Edinburgh in 2013 and 2014. Viv, a regular guest on BBC Radio 4, lives in London with her husband and three children. Say Sorry to the Lady is Viv's debut stand-up show.
