Be horrified and delighted as your favourite comics describe, in gruesome detail, the worst gigs of their lives.

Your worst day at work will pale in comparison.

Portrait of George McEncroe

George McEncroe

George McEncroe is the CEO and founder of Shebah, Australia's ridesharing service for women. While trying to safely get her four kids where they needed to go and support her family as a single mum, she came up with an idea for a business: ridesharing that allowed an all-women fleet of drivers to earn income whenever suited them, and that provided worry-free transport for women and children. Now that she's turned her idea into a reality, she's added CEO to the list of roles on her resumé, which include stand-up comedian, breakfast radio host, ABC producer and more.
