Feel Good

After a fresh take on the overdone romance genre? The hotly anticipated ‘Feel Good’ from Mae Martin hits the spot. Co-written and starring comedian Mae Martin, ‘Feel Good’ offers a no-holds-barred dive into the world of LGBTQ+ love, lust, addiction and stand up. The show is given its raw and honest feel by virtue of the fact that Martin touches on her own experiences of navigating the modern-day landscape of love, addiction and sexuality, and tries to reconcile the differences between a healthy relationship and a toxic one.
