Wet is Alison Spittles debut UK tour, coming to The Stand on Tuesday 31st January, and contains a story about a fight breaking out during an aqua-aerobics session, which serves as a perfect introduction for those unaware of the Irish comedian. 

The co-host of BBC Radio 5’s Wheel of Misfortune, Alison Spittle is a giddy and excitable storyteller, as her rich imagery and surreal visuals often finds anecdotes getting waylaid by her own hysterical laughter. The joyfully energetic and bubbly comic received rave reviews from her run at the Edinburgh Fringe, praising her original material that steers away from the tropes one may expect from an upcoming comedian. With her run at the Fringe reaping glowing reviews, the comedian’s candour, charm and cyclical writing have seen her noted as one of the year’s most astute additions to the circuit. Instantly approachable, relatable and authentic, Spittle’s stage presence is as genuinely fun as the material she provides. From such a simple story, she’ll take you on a journey with wonderfully silly anecdotes and erudite routines waxing lyrical on an array on subjects, from the benign to the poignant.
