Michelle Shaughnessy at Chortle's Fast Fringe

Extract from her Edinburgh show, Be Your Own Daddy

Canadian comic Michelle Shaughnessy uses Chortle’s Fast Fringe crowd to try to settle a marital dispute in today’s stand-up clip.

The comedian, who has just moved to the UK, wants him to share his location via his phone - but he disagreed.

She also talks about the age gap in their relationship, and how she has had to lecture him on ‘my body, my choice’ issues.

Shaughnessy ’s Fringe show is called Be Your Own Daddy (not as stated on the screen behind her), and is on at Underbelly Bristo Square at 8.30pm daily.

Fast Fringe showcases 12 different comedy and variety acts every day of the Edinburgh Fringe (Aug 3-27). See us at Pleasance Dome at 6.40pm. Tickets:. https://chortl.es/ffviayoutube
