The sexy Hodor of Scottish comedy returns to Edinburgh with a whole new hour of self-effacing comedy. After a successful year of viral videos and comedy triumphs, Storrie is excited to return to her spiritual home of the Edinburgh Fringe
with more self-penned pornography, more stories of mishaps that make you feel better about your own failings and more hilarity than you can shake an old stick at.

‘The moment you enter the room, you know this is someone special… Ashley Storrie is a magnificently promising act.’ Ed Fest Magazine

’She's an example of the kind of feminism that doesn't announce its agenda but lives it… and should be mandatory viewing’ The List

'She is so naturally funny' Chortle.co.uk

News and Reviews for this Show

August 11, 2017  The Skinny
Born into Scottish comedy royalty (Janey Godley is her mother), you might think Storrie would want to shy away from the microphone. Happily chatting away to the audience as they file in, commenting on dungarees dresses and crepes, she effortlessly puts the room at ease. For a show about love for her family, it’s a comforting start. Storrie excels at being candid and Morning Glory emphasises this skill. Tales of living with a father with autism and his knack for terrible gifts are fantastically frank, as is her account of a naughty school incident. Despite her childlike demeanour, there’s also a reading of presidential erotica and sexpeditions, all delivered with a gleeful giggle.

It’s heartwarming at times too; the admiration for her parents is overwhelming, as is the affection for her non-gangster Granda’. It’s not a super polished, high concept hour, but there's a quality to Storrie's storytelling. It’s a well-executed set of genuine, enjoyable stand-up from a breakout star of the Scottish comedy scene. Click Here
