An Ungrateful Woman
WINNER of Best Show at the Fosters Edinburgh Comedy Awards 2013.
Why did people praise Michael Gove on 25 February 2014? What made Bridget lose control of her emotions at a casting for a yoghurt commercial? And which national newspaper genuinely mistook Bridget (from R4’s Bridget Christie Minds the Gap, Dilemma, Heresy, News Quiz, The Unbelievable Truth, BBC’s HIGNFY, It’s Kevin and C4’s Cardinal Burns) for King Charles II? ‘One of the finest comedians around’ (Independent). ‘A superb stand-up with a powerful voice and something to say…a revelation’ ***** (Observer). ‘A beautiful balance between the personal, the public and the parodic’ **** (Times).
Because I’m Shappi…
After being knocked up like a 1950s teenager, she missed the festival last year, but now she is back and it’s forward march for Shappi. Reflecting on the good things, she celebrates her haphazard, zigzag towards her dreams. She introduces us to friends, family and total strangers who have helped her on her personal Yellow Brick Road. ‘She has plenty to say, and says it with pointedness and potency’ (Guardian). ‘Makes live comedy thrilling’ (Evening Standard).
