About Karoshi

Seventy percent of us hate our jobs. Is it any wonder, with pointless jargon to contend with (Key Performance Indicators, anyone?), and even more pointless employee perks? A stapler isn’t a perk! And as for bosses, where do we start? Karoshi is Japanese for ‘death by overwork’ – literally. But what about the little deaths we all experience every time we clock in? In this hilarious, fact-filled hour, tired ex-middle manager, Mel Byron, pokes fun at the absurdities that drove her to head for the door. Aimed at anyone who’s ever had a job, this is surely the most relatable show you’ve ever seen. Praise for Mel Byron - ‘May just make your day.’ (The Scotsman)
