Event description

Description

The award-winning feminist, atheist, polyamorous comedian and writer 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?

Kate Smurthwaite, a patron of Humanists UK, is currently touring her 13th solo show and performs at major clubs around the UK and festivals across the world. She is often a guest on news and debate shows and is well known for her forthright opinions and campaigning work.

Kate’s TV appearances include the BBC's flagship political debate show Question Time, BBC 1's The Big Questions, as well as news items on BBC, ITV, Sky and other channels.

Her radio contributions include BBC’s Jeremy Vine Show, Woman's Hour, The Moral Maze and a 15-minute programme in the Four Thought series written and performed entirely by Kate about sexist humour and sexism in comedy.

Kate also writes for publications from Cosmopolitan to The Guardian and The Independent and she has a regular column in New Internationalist.

Kate is a writer for the BBC political comedy show The Revolution Will Be Televised and the UK's leading political satire show Have I Got News for You?

In 2014 Kate was nominated for the Emma Humphreys Memorial Prize for campaigning against violence against women.
