She will be bringing humour and understanding to the table at the event on Wednesday, September 29, in her inclusive deep-dive into relationship woes. Whether you’re in a relationship, freshly single or a long-term lone wolf The Breakup Monologues is hilarious and relatable. Part stand-up comedy routine and part psychological investigation it will be sure to raise a smile!
Wire Wool regulars may remember Rosie from her 2018 Wire Wool Events talk ‘Is Monogamy Dead?’ in Winchester.
In 2011, comedian Rosie Wilby was dumped by email. Obsessing about breakups ever since, she embarked on a personal quest to investigate, understand and conquer the psychology of heartbreak. The Breakup Monologues takes on the big questions about our life-changing separations in the modern age of ghosting, breadcrumbing and conscious uncoupling.
Rosie Wilby is an award-winning comedian, critically acclaimed author, podcaster, speaker and journalist. Dubbed ‘the Queen of Breakups’ by BBC Radio 4, she regularly appears on radio and TV commentating on sexuality, dating and love. She has written for Guardian, Sunday Times and New Statesman, and has performed at major festivals including Glastonbury and Latitude.In Rosie’s trademark immersive, investigative form, the self-styled ‘lesbian Louis Theroux’ explores breakups in all of their diverse forms. Sharing what she has learnt from her own life and from conversations with her podcast guests, friends, fans, relationship therapists, scientists and sociologists she creates a wonder of humour, heartache and psychology that will strike a chord with all.
45-minute stand-up comedy talk, followed by opportunity for audience questions.
