This is the story of Joanne’s amaaaaaaazing diet. She didn’t just lose weight though; she lost jobs, friends and fellas, but she didn’t care because she could wear bangles as belts and that’s all that mattered. Then one day, over her morning carrot, Joanne realised she’d lost her mind. Turns out it was pinned to a lost property board up in space, enjoying the view and its newfound freedom. Trying to entice it back became the hardest, funniest, greatest, and weirdest time of her life.

BITE ME is a comedy show about a period in her life when Joanne was convinced a brussel sprout was significant sustenance for 24 hours and two spinning classes. A first of its kind, BITE ME takes a typically delicate subject and shows the thought process behind an eating disorder with electric wit and brutal honesty.

Joanne McNally’s smash hit show comes to Cork after taking Edinburgh Festival Fringe by storm! See it at the Everyman Theatre, from Wednesday 18th until Friday 20th October. Tickets €20, concession €18, or students €9, are available from the Everyman Box Office, phone 021 4501 673, or online at

Bite Me is supported by the Arts Council of Ireland / An Chomhairle Ealaíon.
