What was the inspiration for this performance?
My sister told me you become 25% uglier when you go through a break up. Then I moved to the trendy part of town and started feeling uncharacteristically nervous about leaving the house. Then I wrote a song about being caught with too much pubic hair, and it felt weird and wonderful enough that there might be something in it.

Weird Tinder dates and STD checks make up an Ashtead comedian’s musical that has been announced for the Edinburgh Fringe festival this year.
Tamar Broadbent will perform Get Ugly – a comedy she describes as being about “re-discovering your awesome-ness and embracing life without a filter” – at the world-famous arts festival in August.
Tamar Broadbent on whether looks are important..
Being attractive is not conducive to comedy. Here are five reasons why:
1. Attractive people don’t need to do any work at school because teachers give them good marks because they fancy them, so when they grow up they can’t write properly and are unable to apply for gigs.

This will be my fifth year performing at the Edinburgh festival. It is like a home away from home - I’ve loved putting on shows there, getting wet socks and sometimes living in houses where you can only shower if the oven is on (another story). It is my favourite place and the most exciting festival in the world. This year I will be performing Get Ugly - a musical comedy about being newly single in your mid-twenties, in an image-conscious world. It’s about re-discovering your awesomeness and embracing life without a filter.
