Hannah Silvester: Setting the world on fire and other hobbies.

Stand-up comedy with heart and depth and songs.

Hannah Silvester was Disneyfied from an early age and spent her days trying really hard to be beautiful, modest and kind.  In 2016 she gave it all up to become a rapscallion. Some might call it a mid-life crisis; some might suggest it is a defiant protest against social conditioning; some might consider it’s just what happens when you get older and stop caring so much.  Join the 2014 Midlands Comedy Award Winner for a show that explores her journey to the dark side and other stuff she finds funny and interesting.
