Award winning Victoria Melody, “the female theatrical Louis Theroux” (Oxford Mail), embarks on the difficult business of being funny, embedding herself into the world of British amateur stand-up comedy. Despite a surprise diagnosis and a comedy teacher telling her to give up, can she be funny enough to make it? 

Always the obsessive Victoria will be wearing technology that shows in real-time what happens to the brain when you tell jokes. It’s a genuine rip-roaring insight into the brain and the secret world of stand-up.

In the past Victoria has become a pigeon fancier, northern soul dancer, beauty queen, championship dog show handler and a funeral director all for material for her theatre shows.

The research and development for this project has been supported by the Watershed’s Winter Residency, Farnham Maltings, South Street, SARIC - University of Sussex and Arts Council England. 

Victoria returns to South Street, where she is a firm favourite, after several previous visits with shows including Northern Soul, Major Tom, Hair Peace & Ugly Chief.

Victoria is produced by Farnham Maltings.
