  • Show Description
  • Artist Bio
  • A musical cabaret from award-winning comedy songwriter Tamar Broadbent (BBC Radio 4, Boom Chicago).

    This was the plan: 1) Find dream job. 2) Change the world. 3) Go for brunch. Now she’s broke, overwhelmed by options and in a complicated relationship with Netflix.

    Tamar’s Grandma always asks her when she’s going to get married and settle down in her home village, but Tamar’s far too busy trying to live her ‘best life’ – drinking wine, getting trapped in boob tubes and googling pictures of Tom Hardy with puppies.

    Drawing on her Grandma’s advice, Tamar explores what it means to be a young woman today in this musical storytelling show about ambition, anxiety and avocados that will leave you wanting to seize the day and do it all for Grandma!

    After a smash hit run in Edinburgh, Best Life transferred to the SoHo Playhouse in New York and serenaded sailors with Virgin’s Voyages. Now Tamar’s bringing her hit show back to London at the Crazy Coqs for ONE NIGHT ONLY.

    First presented by Jimmy Jewell Ltd.

  • Tamar is a writer, actor, improviser, comedian and musician.

    She has written five solo comedy shows, of which Get Ugly was nominated for Best Comedy at Fringeworld and Best Life transferred to the SoHo Playhouse NYC. Her catchy, funny story songs about single life in your twenties can be seen on YouTube.

    From 2018-2020 she worked as a main stage performer at American improv theatre Boom Chicago, where she wrote sketches and performed long form, short form and musical improv five nights a week.

    Tamar has written for BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show, Sketchtopia and Fresh From the Fringe. She wrote and starred in a web series based on her one-woman show Best Life with Fiction Valley (Fremantle) NL. She also wrote the book for the musical Club Mex, produced by Global Musicals (Six) in 2019.

    In her free time, Tamar enjoys listening to noughties pop anthems, dancing alone in her living room and drinking as much red wine as is stereotypically expected of a 30-year-old city woman.
