On the Atack
Emily Atack has her fingers in many pies, specifically pies marked comedian, actor (she’s been in everything from ‘The Inbetweeners’ to the big screen version of ‘Dad’s Army’), impressionist, singer and contestant on ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!’. In the spring she debuted her solo comedy show and it proved to be such a riot that she’s bringing it back again this autumn with all new content. Entitled ‘Talk Thirty To Me’ it’s a memoir of anecdotes, impressions and tales of being a comedy actor in her twenties. She unravels today’s anxiety inducing world of scrolling through social media, swiping right, slimming apps and the never-ending search for “the one”. If you’re looking for a tongue-in-cheek sideways look at “having it all”, and turning 30 in the millennial age, then roll-up, roll-up.
