Dr, Dr I’m in need of a laugh

Dr Dr Harley Street

If recession and rain are getting you down and you’re in need of a mood enhancer, repair to Harley Street for a novel prescription. Comedian Amy Wright is holding a series of one-to-one consultations consisting entirely of Dr Dr jokes. Laughter. Best medicine. Etc. Patients will need to arrive armed with a Knock Knock joke to get through the door, but after that you’re in Wright’s capable hands. (Well, her grandpa was a doctor, apparently, so she feels ‘somewhat qualified’.) The newbie north-east comic will be putting aside her usual mix of confessional poems, Rihanna-themed rants and general quirk in favour of an intense ten-minute Dr Dr treatment. And it’s free, which is something we might not be able to say about the NHS for much longer…

Free consultations will take place on Sunday May 27 & Sunday July 1, noon-5pm, at 1 Harley Street. To book, email drdrharleyst@hotmail.com.

Wright will also be performing her show ‘Occupied’ at the Camden Head, Aug 4-6, as part of the Camden Fringe, and at Edinburgh Festival this summer.
