Ruby Wax was one of the biggest names in British comedy in the Eighties, her razor-sharp wit and wry observations making her a star. Now, Wax has returned with a confronting show about her own mental illness. It doesn’t sound a barrel of laughs, but awkward moments are interspersed with comic gold.
