Let's face it, 2020 has been a year rife with grief as the pandemic has seen many of us lose people, places and things that were dear to us. So, this week we're talking about grief; from our experiences of loss to the coping mechanisms we've employed to help us through the pain. We're joined by actress, comedian and writer Isabelle Farah who will be sharing her thoughts on losing someone you love as well as chatting to us about her new solo show, Ellipsis. This episode contains trigger warnings as there are mentions of bereavement, death and suicide.
Isabelle Farah is an actress, comedian and writer. She trained at DSL and after playing various wenches, maids, and Syrian refugees, started doing stand up in late 2016. She was a semifinalist in the Funny Women Competition in 2018, 2Northdown New Act competition in 2019, and her short film, Breakfast, has been shortlisted for the Funny Women Shorts prize this year.
You can catch her new show Ellipsis at The New Normal Festival on the 13th August at 7pm: https://newnormalfest.co.uk/whats-on
