How do we grieve for someone? How does it change and evolve as we get older? Cariad Lloyd's father died when she was 15 leaving her with emotions she had no language for. So, she created Griefcast for herself and other comedians to talk, share and laugh about the weirdness of grieving and death. Each time she talks to a different comedian about their own personal feelings of loss.
What has talking incessantly about death taught her and how similar is the process of grieving for us all?
Come and find out at this grief themed gathering, where we will celebrate this life we have in all it's brilliance, sadness and laughter.
Cariad is an award-winning comedian, actor, writer and improviser. She has been seen on Qi, Have I Got News For You, Toast of London, Murder in Successville, 8 out of 10 Cats does Countdown and Peep Show, and is also heard on The News Quiz, The Now Show and The Museum of Curiosity on Radio 4. She is a member of Austentatious: An Improvised Jane Austen Novel, who are currently performing at the Savoy Theatre in the West End and she is the host and creator of Griefcast, a podcast about death with comedians, which is cheerier than it sounds.
As well as this brilliant talk, we'll be doing our usual: mass singalongs to some of our favourite power ballads, an awesome spoken word artist, hearing a story from a member of our community and drinking a vat of tea afterwards!
We're excited to see you there!
