‘One of Scotland's Top Stand Up Comics’ - The Herald

Recently included in The List Magazines Hot 100 Jay Lafferty continues to cement her reputation as one of the hottest tickets in stand up comedy. Regular panelist and sometime host of the hit BBC Scotland show Breaking The News, Jay is sought after for her on point satirical views that saw her hit the front page of The New York Times.

Jay’s latest smash hit show Bahookie opened at the Edinburgh Fringe 2023 to sold out audiences and rave reviews. The show was listed in the British Comedy Guides best reviewed shows at the Edinburgh Fringe. Hot on the heels of that success comes the extended tour and two Special Live Records in Edinburgh and Glasgow.

You can expect ‘material tighter than a gymnasts leotard’ (ThreeWeeks) as Jay recounts her unique approach to getting older, keeping fit and finding joy. Jay tackles life coaches, social media targeted adverts and introduces you to Dan - her pole dancing teacher....

Bahookie is a tour de force celebration of what you can achieve when you are terrified of becoming irrelevant. Jay uses her signature warm wit and sharp observations to highlight the hilarity that comes from completely overestimating your own abilities.

‘With Bahookie, Jay Lafferty has cemented herself as one of the strongest comedians on the circuit today. It’s a marvel how consistently brilliant her shows are’ - James McFarlane, Broadway Baby
