Annie & Bianka (We Want To Be Better) Mother's Daughters

You know what they say, "Mother Knows Best"... but does she really? In their debut stand-up comedy show, Annie Nolan and Bianka Thompson recount all the advice their Mums have given them over the years and look at how it has shaped them as women.

As children we take so much of what our mothers say as gospel, but maybe we should actually question their reasoning sometimes. Is Mum really that intuitive? Does Mum really know best or is she faking it like the rest of us? Should you hope to be an apple that falls really far away from the tree? Let Annie & Bianka decide for you.

Well known for their up-punching 'We Want To Be Better' podcast, Annie Nolan and Bianka Thompson have made it their life mission to joyfully improve and educate themselves and their community of listeners on everything from body-positivity, carbon footprint reduction, keeping cool on a hot day – and they do it all while never, never punching down. Their hilarious, well-researched and thoughtfully written conversations have earned them a loyal fanbase, who have kept them a mainstay in the iTunes Top 50. The stand-up comedy debut from these hilarious and inspirational babes promises to offer all that and more!

With more than 25,0000 downloads a month, they’ve hit #1 on the iTunes charts and have over 120,000 combined followers across social media.

Join Annie & Bianka and their fanbase of people actively pursuing betterment when the 'We Want To Be Better' girls hit the stage in their stand-up comedy debut. Tickets are not expected to last long!
