Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year, Nina Gilligan is playing to sell-out audiences at the Edinburgh Festival. The billing for her show 'Late Developer' tells us "she's never hit a single milestone and at 50 is still trying to grasp the complex rules of womanhood. She knows she's not alone. As her eggs deplete and her body becomes hotter than earth's core she is certain only of one thing: she refuses to go on a cruise".
Audiences are loving the show and many have taken to Twitter to rave about the show with comments including "hilarious, had everyone in stitches the whole show. A seriously talented comedian, go see!!"; "I love finding comedians I didn’t know before. Got handed a flyer by Nina Gilligan for her show & went. Genuinely laugh out loud"; "A perfect hour of stand up. I cannot say enough great things about this funny lady. Everything you could want from an hour show and just really really funny" and "Funny, northern female Nina Gilligan was our favourite from this year’s Fringe. Definitely worth a watch!"
She featured in Pick of the Shows from The Scotsman and also as one of legendary reviewer Mervyn Shutter's 'Pick of the Fringe' last week.
As the Edinburgh Festival enters its last week, Nina will also be performing at a Get Off Comedy fundraiser on Wednesday 24th August at The Grand, Pleasance Courtyard alongside Nish Kumar and Kiri Pritchard-McLean.
Catch Nina's show every afternoon at Just the Tonic at the Tron. Tickets are available now.
