BITE ME is the story of Joanne’s amaaaaaaazing diet. She didn’t just lose weight though; she lost jobs, friends and fellas, but she didn’t care because she could wear bangles as belts and that’s all that really mattered. Then suddenly one day, over her morning carrot, Joanne realised that she’d lost her mind.
Turns out it was pinned to a lost property board up in space, enjoying the view and its new-found freedom. Trying to entice it back, however, became the hardest, funniest, greatest, and weirdest time of her life…
Following its sell-out run at Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2017, Joanne McNally and director Una McKevitt (Singlehood, Madhouse) bring BITE ME to the VAULT Festival, for five nights including a matinee. Premiering at Dublin Fringe Festival 2016, Bite Me was nominated for Best Production, Best Performer and a First Fortnight Award. This one-woman comedy theatre show draws on Joanne’s personal experience of anorexia and bulimia, offering audiences a relatable, irreverent and hilarious look at how, with her trademark, edgy sense of humour and honesty, she began to dismantle their grip on her life.
Joanne McNally is a well-known face on Irish TV, and has earned a rapid reputation for being “the most exciting thing to happen to Irish comedy in years” – The Irish Times. Her hit documentary Baby Hater was aired on TV3, and besides being the co-host of RTE’s The Republic of Telly she has appeared on The Blame Game, The Late Late Show, The Tommy Tiernan Chat Show, The Six O Clock Show,The Afternoon Show and Ireland AM. Joanne also writes a weekly column in the Irish Daily Star.
