Presented by  Kate Smurthwaite

The award-winning feminist, atheist, polyamorous comedian and writer for Have I Got News For You, puts away all those years of coquettishness and gets off the fence.

Kate has sworn, flashed her hairy armpits at Eamonn Holmes, shown up in pyjamas, called a Daily Mail columnist “Dad” and shouted at a nun all on live TV. That’s when she’s not insulting organised religion or the monarchy. But is she the one with the problem? Lots of angry men with very poor grammar on the internet think so.

She’s actually a nice quiet homely sort. In her new one-woman show, Kate lifts the lid on her reputation as a provocatrice extraordinaire and asks: where did it all go wrong?

An hour of warm insightful stand-up from the woman described by John Cleese as “Fun, energetic & full of ideas” .

“One of the wittiest gun-slingers I’ve ever seen on stage” The Spectator.

In 2013 Kate won a Three Week’s Editor’s Choice Award declaring her one of the ten best things about the Edinburgh Fringe. This year’s new show received five-star reviews.

Kate is a writer for the UK’s most popular political comedy show, Have I Got News For You. She has appeared on hundreds of TV and radio shows including Question Time, The Big Questions, This Morning, BBC News, Sky News, Woman’s Hour & The Today Program. 

She performs stand-up comedy around the world and is currently touring her 13th one-woman show which received five-star reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

In 2013 she won a Three Week’s Editor’s Choice Award naming her one of the ten best things about the Edinburgh Fringe. In 2014 she was nominated for the Emma Humphreys Memorial Prize for campaigning against violence against women.
