It’s the morning after a gig the night before, and Alison Spittle is on cloud nine. The Westmeath comedian performed to a packed house in The Yard, Manchester, the evening prior and she’s grabbing a coffee and enjoying the sights and sounds of the city before heading back to her home in London.

At this stage I’m walking on air to have gigs booked in,” she says, speaking by phone from a café in the city. “You’re driving up for five hours to do 20 minutes — and it’s worth it. I’m half-vaccinated now and I’m booked in to do a tour of Ireland… actually, I’m getting emotional now thinking I’ll get to see my mam.”
