Spaniel-in-human-form, Louise Leigh is a "polished,sparky performer able to energise a room...hilarious" (****The Wee Review) and "super mature at home, buoyant in the field" (Dogcrunch.com). But can she navigate the undergrowth of midlife without tripping over her spaniel's ears? And can she still be adorable at 48?

"Louise Leigh is one of the most original and promising new acts to come out of the South West Comedy scene... Consistently funny and unafraid to experiment...Highly recommended" - Wil Hodgson

"Great confidence, great performance, great jokes!" Gary Delaney

Since finally starting the career in comedy she had been putting off since she was seventeen, Louise has been making more and more people laugh, mostly in the West of the UK. This is her second hour-long show and it's mostly about what happens when you give yourself permission to be an idiot, when you're supposed to be growing up. It's a love letter to her inner spaniel...and to actual spaniels.

If you like laughing, dogs, laughing at dogs (never do this, they look sad) and mucking about, you'll have a great time with Louise.

Audience reviews of Louise:
"Great night out! Hilarious, haven't laughed so much in ages"
"This woman is the comedian I never knew I needed! Proper funny, proper refreshing, proper job"
"Hilarious, touching, moving, laugh-out-loud-therapy-for-the-soul. Lou's carefully observed humour balances kind with cutting and takes reflective introspection and turns it into energetic, crazy, joyful playful performance. Go see her!"
