260: Comedian Esther Manito on mum guilt and the mental load
What's hardest part of parenting - the baby bit, toddler tantrums, or teenage rage? What's it like to live with your dad at the age of 40? And what's the best way to cope with an emergency nipple hair situation?
Helping us answer all this questions is the hilarious Esther Manito! She tells us all about her experience of starting comedy after having two kids. We discuss sharing domestic chores and balancing out the mental load, and generally have a good old moan.
Esther discusses living with her dad, and the influence her Lebanese heritage has had on her own parenting. We round off with some tip top confessions involving theme park rides and hairy nipples, and describe our breasts for the listener.
Esther's tour of her new show, Hell Hath No Fury, kicks off at the Soho Theatre on 17 August. Then she's off to Southend, Birmingham, Bristol, Oxford, Newcastle, Brighton, Edinburgh, Glasgow... Follow her on instagram @esthermanito or visit esthermanito.co.uk for dates and tickets!
