Harriet Dyer

443 - Harriet Dyer

A whirlwind of wonderfully authentic absurdity, Harriet Dyer is a comic treasure. In this candid conversation, we discuss how she unexpectedly found her true calling, paving the way for “Trigger Warning”, a deeply powerful show rooted in the horrors committed against her and the lack of available help, which she nonetheless navigates with sensitivity, warmth and humour.

We also talk about the addictive nature of comedy, its impact on personal happiness, and whether one can find contentment regardless of gig outcomes. As an advocate for mental health, Harriet opens up about her role in running "Barking Tales" and the impact of neurodiversity on her comedic authenticity.
