I Don't Know What To Say is an engaging, funny and moving stand-up special about how humans respond when faced with difficult news.

Centred around her own experiences with breast cancer, and using funny and shocking anecdotes, Laura Smyth asks what the 'correct' things to say are when trying to support a loved one, and why we so often find ourselves screwing it up. A confessional and cathartic evening of comedy around a topic that is still taboo for many.
