Georgie Morrell - A Poke in the Eye

Georgie Morrell - A Poke in the Eye


One woman. One eye. And her (sort of) blind life…

As heard on BBC Radio 4, join Georgie Morrell for her critically acclaimed debut solo show. Using her wit, charm and anecdotes, Georgie tells the story of how she went blind but now she can see… literally!

Do your other senses really get stronger? Is it wrong to crack onto your doctor? Will she get a new eye that shoots lasers? Recounting stories of doctors, sexual fantasies, binge drinking and family drama, Georgie gives a unique account of what it is to face inevitable blindness with her very own brand of humour. Being disabled is her excuse to do exactly what she wants, say what she wants and live her one-eyed life as she wants.

“Riotous, unapologetic and sidesplittingly funny, Morrell pours fuel onto the fire, and sets disability taboos alight.”
