235: Harriet Kemsley on comedy, compromise, and condoms

The Scummy Mummies Podcast

Jul 31 2022 • 49 mins

How do you cope with the anxiety of parenthood? Is wearing make-up anti-feminist? And what's the most fun way to dispose of a prophylactic after sex? Helping us answer all these questions is the hilarious Harriet Kemsley!

She tells us all about her new Edinburgh show, and what it was like to get back on stage just one month after having a baby. We hear how having dyspraxia has affected her experience of motherhood, and why she believes marrying another stand-up comedian was a terrible mistake.

Then it's time for some Unsolicited Advice, where we share our ultimate life hack, involving a cardboard box. And things get heated as talk turns to the bedroom - specifically Helen's, and what's underneath the bed.

Harriet's show, Honeysuckle, is on from 2 - 25 August at Monkey Barrel in Edinburgh, and then she's touring all around the UK. Tickets are available from harrietkemsley.com.
