Amy was diagnosed with endometriosis in 2016. Now she’s here to relive twelve years of misdiagnosis, toilet-based mishaps and failed one-night stands.
Stand-up comedian and theatre maker, Amy Vreeke, creates multi-genre, autobiographical work that explores social taboos with candour and comedy.
Through bluntly delivered jokes, captivating storytelling and a little help from the Gilmore Girls, Amy explores the taboos that surround women’s health and gives us an insight into a life with a chronic illness.
“The stories of her childhood and misspent youth… had the audience splitting with laughter… Amy is definitely one to look out for on the comedy circuit.” – Victoria Wilmot, North Westend.
