What's the worst thing you've ever done? Alex has done a lot of things the way she wasn't supposed to; relationships, sex, feminism, kids, saying sorry. The only thing she's gotten right was writing a show about it. And losing her virginity. 

Fresh from a smash hit, extended sellout run at the Edinburgh Fringe, join Alexandra for her debut show as she discovers that nothing in life is black and white, and the grey part is a lot more fun.

Best New Show nominee (Leicester Comedy Festival 2023), British Comedy Guide recommended. Tour support for Frankie Boyle and Eshaan Akbar. As seen and heard on Channel4 and BBC Radio 4 Extra.
