Reliably informed

After several years of character material and underground success, Bridget Christie suddenly shot to fame with her Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award winning 2013 Fringe show A Bic For Her. Establishing herself as the queen of feminist stand up, and playing a huge role in making feminist comedy trendy again (a cultural shift we were crying out for), her career since then has consisted of sell out tours, extra dates added due to overwhelming demand, and writing her now hugely successful book, A Book For Her.

This current show, nominally her book tour, is actually another stand-up show, with barely a mention of her book during the show. All her trademarks – alternative style, delivery that’s not deadpan so much as constantly exasperated, political outrage, acerbic wit – are here in spades. Don’t miss Bridget Christie on top of her game.

Bridget Christie is at The Stand, Newcastle on Tuesday 15th March.
