Fresh from her smash hit Edinburgh Fringe and Soho Theatre sell-out debut, rising star Chloe Petts is set to perform at the Lemon Tree in Aberdeen on Friday, February 2 with her brand new show, If You Can’t Say Anything Nice.
Praised for her polite and well-mannered way of handling hot topics like gender and toxic masculinity in the last show, in her second hour Chloe’s returning with a newer, ruder approach to the big issues. Expect routines on weddings, men who like Millwall and calling you all a bunch of virgins. Chloe’s debut hour in 2022 was one of the best-reviewed shows at the Fringe (British Comedy Guide), establishing her as one of the most exciting up and coming acts on the circuit and earning her a Chortle Awards, Breakthrough Act nomination.
Co-founder of The LOL Word, an all women and non-binary queer comedy collective “transforming comedy” (The Guardian) regularly hosting sell-out monthly London nights, Chloe is an alumna of the prestigious Pleasance Comedy Reserve, has been shortlisted for the BBC Comedy Award, was a finalist of Leicester Square New Comedian of the Year Awards 2017 and came runner-up in the Funny Women Awards 2017. As well as supporting Ed Gamble on his Electric
2022 UK tour, Chloe was selected to perform at this year’s Melbourne International Comedy Festival in April, before returning to the UK to complete her Transience tour with an extra date added at London’s Leicester Square Theatre due to demand.
On television, Chloe has been a regular on World Cup Breakfast
(Sky Sports) for the most recent Men’s Football World Cup 2022, previously for Good Morning Euros (Sky Sports) for the UEFA Women’s Euros and returns to Sky Sports again this summer as a regular to discuss the upcoming Women’s World Cup. She has also appeared on MOTDx (BBC Three), The Frank Skinner Show (Absolute Radio), Jonathan Ross’s Comedy Club (ITV), The Stand-Up Sketch Show (ITV2), Richard Osman's House of Games (BBC Two), Random Acts (Channel 4), Hypothetical (Dave), Fighting Talk (BBC Radio 5 Live), BBC Three Quickies (BBC Three), as well as winning Pointless Celebrities (BBC One).
