"Don't feel bad for me. I think I'm, like, so pretty" -- Amy Schumer.

Mavis has one rule: she will not be seen in fluorescent lighting. Sorry, two: she doesn't do small talk the morning after.

Mavis goes through life like a Karate Kid -- in a leotard and living off of last night's kebab. Not even ISIS would claim responsibility for this disaster.

Set to a subpar score by Conor Neylon and Jackson Peele, and featuring a pitiful performance from Megan Hunter, Mavis (And Other Broken Objects) is a tragically comic cabaret about loving yourself... even when you probably shouldn't.

Raise a glass of sparkling rose -- or whatever's on special -- to the glamorous, glittering mess that is Mavis.

Warning: spectacular.

Presented by:
Megan Hunter
