A story about mothers and levels of mother-ness that exist in the wild. From the face of Harriet Dyer (as seen on Comedy Central, The Russell Howard Hour and winner of 2022 Edinburgh Fringe Neurodiversity Representation Award).
Harriet has been a full time comic since 2013. She’s had numerous critically acclaimed shows, works for the majority of big clubs and festivals, regularly gigs overseas, and prides herself in being totally original! An experience to behold, if you will.
Harriet has bipolar disorder and does a lot of comedy work around mental health. Her debut, solo, hour-long show ‘Barking At Aeroplanes’ at Edinburgh Fringe about her struggles and adventures with mental health received critical acclaim, as have the multiple shows and tours she’s produced since then. She’s also co-hosts a fab podcast with Louise Young, and published incredible autobiographical book called ‘Bipolar Comedian’.
Harriet is very clearly a huge favourite of ours, and you’ll know why if you’ve had the joy of seeing her perform at Square Hole in the past. Her last tour show date with us was full to the brim so don’t dill-dally, grab yourself a ticket.
Praise for Harriet:
“half mania, half Victoria Wood. Hilarious… She has quietly reinvented the confessional stand-up.” ★★★★★ – Neurodiverse Review
“Astute humour elevating it to anecdotal art” ★★★★ – Chortle
“Harriet Dyer was one of the stand out superstars for me of this years Edinburgh Fringe. She’s insightful, unique, peerless, extraordinary and… well, maybe a little unhinged.” – 4 Extra Stands Up, BBC Radio 4 Extra
“Natural comedic genius!” – Funny Women
“Harriet Dyer is wonderfully weird, definitely eccentric and just a bundle of whimsical hilarity. If you like your stand up on the oddball side, Barking at Aeroplanes will have you in stitches.” – Broadway Baby
“An amazingly funny, surreal stream of consciousness from someone who is wonderfully charming in her delivery and style.” – Short Com
“hilarious” ★★★★★ – One4Review
“Dyer’s imagination and joyful embrace of nonsensical silliness is infectious. It’s so ridiculous that we can’t help but abandon ourselves to it. It’s undeniably funny, too. Dyer is brilliantly likeable, and has a natural instinct for the surreal and the physical.” ★★★★ – The Wee Review
