Cally Beaton

Cally Beaton appearing at this event

Cally is a natural storyteller full of intelligent, cheeky and punchline-rich material. Single parenthood and a successful transatlantic career delayed her ascent into stand-up, while dating failures ensured it had to happen. Her act is a rollercoaster ride of anecdotes, observations and stuff even your best mate wouldn’t admit to. “Cally Beaton is an exciting and hilarious new talent, definitely one to watch. Sometimes you just know when someone’s got it – and she’s got it.” Time Out
