A journey into the avant-garde from Christie, who presents the audience with a number of baffling questions to chew over before giving her take on the somewhat ludicrous answers.
What are Tory feminists? How did Hitler choose soups in restaurants? Why isn’t there a Spielberg blockbuster about donkeys, and why did Colonel Gadaffi hate them? Bridget Christie knows. And will wear stilts. Baffling stand-up and grotesque manifestations from someone who’s been on Radio 4’s News Quiz, E4’s Cardinal Burns, Sarah Millican’s Support Group and Harry Hill’s Little Internet Show. ‘Avant-garde comedian of prodigious talent’ (Guardian). ‘True, beautiful insanity’ (Sunday Times). ‘Brilliant political bite’ (Arts Desk). ‘Insightful, intelligent, absurd … hits highs of genuine brilliance’ (Chortle.co.uk). www.bridgetchristie.co.uk. Ages 14+.
