Two for the price of one but double trouble with two of Northern Ireland's funniest comedians.

About this event

Teresa is a musical comedian who covers everything from sleazebags in bars to becoming the proud owner of 'going out leggings' with a bit of cake and wine thrown in for good measure.

She spent her thirties being delighted by the success of others and her ever-fluctuating weight but her forties are here and there’s no time like the present to rewrite the rules and sing what’s on her mind.

As seen on BBC’s Blame Game, Soft Border Patrol and Late Licence, with a piano, a gin, and the voice of a woman who has reached the point of no return, Teresa is ready to share.

“One of the few Belfast acts moving away from traditional stand up” The Guardian

“With hilarious songs like “Cake and Wine” and “Nice Ladies”, no one escapes Teresa’s commentary.” Belfast Live
