When Hannah brought her popular Brighton comedy nights, Funny Girls and Indigo Club, to Worthing, I was excited to see the injection of LGBTQ+ events taking place in our up-and-coming and inclusive town of Worthing, West Sussex. Hannah and her talented performers didn’t disappoint, and due to the success of the events, they’ve continued on a monthly basis for all to enjoy evenings full of fun and laughter.
So, when I was pointed in the direction of Hannah’s mini-YouTube series, Everything’s Fine, I knew more laughs were coming my way. The series, which reminds me of a British sitcom, turns the mundane of everyday life into a comical musical – with an upbeat and catchy theme tune, and collaboration of original songs with honest lyrics, incorporated with light-hearted humour guaranteed to make you smile… Or, in my experience, will have you giggling out loud on a train full of people whilst watching my personal favourites, I Haven’t Seen Your Pussy For A While (nominated by me as the new lesbian national anthem), which now makes me see my neighbour’s pussy in a whole different light. Then there’s the Autocorrect song, which is relatable to anyone who’s ever used autocorrect and accidentally texted their partner that they’re really in the mood for a ‘duck’, and their partner comes home with Crispy Aromatic Duck from the local Chinese. An anti-climax to say the least.
On the topic of food, Hannah ignites my inner desires for pizza and eating Nutella from the jar. So much so; after watching the Food episode, that evening I found myself little-spooning a jar of Nutella. “My name is Keira Thomas and I’m a chocoholic.” The first step on the road to recovery is admitting you have a problem.
Hannah’s unintentional quest to find that special someone, with much encouragement from her bestie, Jen, takes you on a funny journey through the trials and tribulations of Work, Food, Technology, Health, Weather, Money, Neighbours and Love, which left me rooting for love to prevail – whether it be love for someone else, or the love you have for yourself – because we’re all damn loveable in our own weird and wonderful ways!
