22 DRUNK WOMEN LIVE - with Olivia Lee

1/16/2019
More
The Drunk Women held court in The Pleasance Theatre for this episode, joined by a rather well-oiled crowd and the one and only comedian, actor and writer extraordinaire - Olivia Lee! Olivia proved to be not only rather adept at getting-to-grips with a true crime, but she also knows her way around a bottle of gin - our kind of sleuth. The case itself is one of towering proportions (when you listen you'll realise that was quite clever) and it's got a dodgy Count, which seems to be a staple...

1/2/2019
More
Comedian, actor & writer Lucy Porter had a bad start to 'Dry January' when she agreed to be The Drunk Women's first guest of 2019. But, as you'll hear, it's totally worth it as the crew dissect the case of Lavinia Fisher, thought to be America's first female serial killer, although we DO know she was hot, so we should probably forgive her. Lucy tells us about a rather niche crime she keeps falling victim to and one of our dear listeners tells us a story which will make you think twice...

Annabel's own crime story displays a heroism which has earned her the name 'The Falcon' ... definitely call her that if you see her out and about. The sloshed sleuths also...
