Meryl O’Rourke - Bad Mother
Some funny and moving material on mixed heritage
This article is from 2011.
O’Rourke won’t be the last Fringe comic to reference the street-riots but it was perhaps unwise to let us hear a better joke on the subject from her spouse. It’s an early off-note that she makes up for with some funny and moving material about her German-Jewish/Irish-Catholic heritage, though the celebrity-obsession she shares with her own mother is disappointingly tiresome.
