Cheer Up, Love: Adventures in Depression with the Crab of Hate

Hay Festival 2016 , 

The Crab of Hate is the personification of the Scottish comedian’s depression and her version of the notorious Black Dog. A constant companion in her life, the Crab has provided her with the best and very worst of times. She talks about how, after many years and with a lot of help and talking, she has embraced her dark side and realised that she can be the most joyous sad person you’ll ever meet.
