Praise for Dead Funny 2019:
“Myra’s best show yet… As shows about death go, it’s very lively.” ★★★★ The Scotsman
“A titan of comedy… A sharp tongue, attitude and dangerously funny jokes make her latest show nothing short of a triumph.” ★★★★★ The Wee Review
“Deliberately offensive but wickedly funny, the laughs never stop” ★★★★★ Broadway Baby
“Dubois’ control, timing, and snap judgements as to who will play along are exquisite. This is someone who knows their craft, understands precisely what they can and cannot pull off, and when to dial the level up a few notches. ”
★★★★ The Skinny
“Myra is deliciously vile; she retorts to every audience interaction without skipping a beat; sharp as a tack and hilarious each time. It’s hard to believe it isn’t scripted – it isn’t – it’s simply the hallmark of a seasoned pro.” ★★★★ West End Wilma
“Hilarious… comic timing that never misses a beat” ★★★★ Edinburgh Festivals
