Samantha Hannah: How to Find Happiness (in a Year)
  • West End

After a 7 year hiatus, Scottish Comedian Samantha Hannah blasted back onto the stand up scene in 2018 by trying to find a husband in a year and writing a show about it& ending up in the national news and meeting her perfect match 12,000 miles away. Now, with husband hunting firmly behind her, she looks for happiness instead.

'How to find Happiness (in a Year)' is a comic deep-dive into the wellbeing industry which saw Samantha improving her life in every way. Now convinced she makes things come true through writing comedy shows, goals for next year include becoming a millionaire and creating the greatest comedy show that ever existed.

As heard on BBC Radio Scotland and BBC 5Live.
Samantha also regularly improvises with her Harold team as part of the Free Association.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
