You leave her shows feeling like you have made a newpal, and you have because Allyson loves being on stage and loves you for being in the audience. Allyson has been a fish out of water for the past 10 years in the UK, now finally feeling like a proper Brit and settled in Manchester she looks forward to her first UK Tour. A self-confessed "over sharer" this show will inevitably serve up a potent observational cocktail of wit,biteand shame. So come let this "People Pleaser" please you, and meet your new best friend Allyson June Smith

After herinitialforays into stand-up garnered her some success, Allyson hit the comedy club circuit, which in turn propelled her to headlining gigs at festivals. She shone in multiple high-profile slots at the Winnipeg, Halifax and Montreal’s JustForLaughs festival. And that was just the start. In the years that followed she received multiple nominations for Best Female Stand-up at the Canadian Comedy Awards, taped her own Comedy Now special and did stints on MuchMusic’s Video on Trial and CBC’s The Debaters. ​

Now settled in the city of Manchester, UK,it’stime for Europe to reap the rewards of Allyson June Smith’s ever-inventive comedic ascent. ​

A self-confessed “over-sharer”,any Allyson June Smith show inevitably serves up a potent observational cocktail of wit,biteand shame. Which meansyou’lltypically find her after the show, with a line of eager fans queued up to talk with her, to confess to her or to share some comically grisly detail from their own lives. Courageously self-deprecating, Allyson’s comedic gift is making every room, whatever the size, feel like an intimate group therapy session. That intimacy, that uncommon bond between audience and performer is at the heart of Allyson’s magic as a comedian. Like the most relatableactressesworking today or yourvery bestfriend, she finds a way to connect with everyone in a room, be they from southeast Asia, theU.K.or North America. ​

“Asking Allyson Smith to support me on tour was a huge mistake. Not only were her nails & hair shinier then my own, but she had crowds in every city in such fits of hysterics that I was forced to question my career choices. Allyson is lovable, relatable, and the type of comedian who surprises even those most deeply committed to the lie that ‘womenaren’t funny”  - KATHERINE RYAN

"If you are a promoter or club owner, and aren't booking Allyson June Smith, then you should hand in your badge and your gun on my desk Monday morning! Absolutely nailed the support slot! Made mehave toraise my game!"  - JASON MANFORD
