Mae Martin is breaking the habit. Her new show Dope "whips through personal anecdotes and smartly written analogies" (The Times, UK) of a lifetime of obsessions, fandom and addiction. It shines a light on that one weird shrimp we all have in our brains that is happy to pursue short-term pleasure despite the long-term negative consequences. It asks – who are we when we’re not addicted?
Mae is the star of BBC Radio 4’s Mae Martin’s Guide to 21st Century Sexuality and has been seen on BBC3’s Russell Howard’s Good News and Live From the BBC. She returns to the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 2017 after a successful debut in 2016.
