Julia Sutherland gets up close and personal with Jay Lafferty, stand-up comedian, producer, writer and director.

Jay works hard in the Scottish comedy scene, and it shows. Her recent Edinburgh Fringe show ‘Besom’ was the fifth highest ranking comedy of the festival and her appearances in the national press and on television are becoming increasingly frequent. She’s the leading half of Scotland’s comedy power couple, and she has a longlist of theatre productions behind her with even bigger plans ahead.
