Self-described as "your favorite high functioning hot mess", social media star turned one-woman comedy tour de force Heather McMahon has fast become the poster girl for the kind of gal that finds the humor in everyday things. From PMS to Trader Joe's to her love for the sunset-colored Aperol Spritz cocktail, the mundanities of life turn into sparkling nuggets of comedy gold in the hands of this funny woman. Don't miss her when she hits US shores on her hilariously titled Farewell Tour (it's her first tour).

Of course, amidst all the fun, games and laughter, there's learning and education - the show's engaging stories about preschooler life are enriched with musical strategies attributed to the late Mr Rogers' social-emotional curriculum.
