More Information on Bridget Christie: Because You Demanded It

Multi-award winning Bridget Christie brings her critically acclaimed, sell-out show to town.

The people of the UK have voted to leave the EU, even though no-one had a plan for what would happen if it did. If you didn’t want to leave the EU, or you did, but now don’t, because you haven’t got any of the things you were promised, then this is absolutely the show for you.  If you did want to leave the EU, and still do, then you will still find it funny, but for different reasons, as you witness the liberal female comedian’s exasperated and despairing meltdown.

In 2013 Bridget won the Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Show with her show A Bic For Her.  The show also won the 2014 South Bank Sky Arts Award for Best Comedy, the 2014 Chortle Award for Best Show and a 2014 Hospital 100 Club Award for Performance and Theatre. In 2014 Bridget won a prestigious Rose D’Or International Broadcasting Award for Best Radio Comedy for her programme Bridget Christie Minds the Gap.

Between October 2015 and March 2016 Bridget had her own weekly column in Guardian Weekend magazine, for which she was nominated for a 2016 Glamour Magazine award.

She has appeared in numerous TV and BBC Radio 4 programmes including Room 101, Have I Got News For You, Loose Ends and The Unbelievable Truth.

 

Voted number 1 in the Guardian’s top 10 comedy of 2016
