Very simply one of the finest stand-ups around. Last years Edinburgh show was according to Bridget supposed to be about her garden. However the EU referendum forced a rewrite which became one of the best review shows of the year and The Guardian’s number 1 comedy show of 2016. You may have seen her on Have I Got News for You, Star of BBC Radio 4’s Bridget Christie Minds the Gap, BBC2’s It’s Kevin, and Comedy Central’s Alternative Comedy Experience.
