This autumn, multi-award winning and highly acclaimed comedian Bridget Christie hits the road with her highly-acclaimed, brand new show WHAT NOW?
Brexit. Trump. Nuclear apocalypse. Environmental catastrophe. Is rolling news affecting your ability to enjoy the simple things in life? Like baking, gardening and autoerotic asphyxiation? Are you sick of being lied to all the time? By politicians, your own children, and surly airport staff? Do you find Ed Sheeran’s success completely baffling? Then this is absolutely the show for you.
Bridget’s last show, the hugely critically acclaimed Brexit show BECAUSE YOU DEMANDED IT, completely sold out its 21-night Leicester Square Theatre run and subsequent UK tour.
In March 2017, Bridget’s debut stand-up special STAND UP FOR HER was launched globally on Netflix, making her the first and currently only British female comic to have a live stand-up show on the channel. The show was also bought by BBC Brit (Nordic territories) and was broadcast in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, the Faroes, and Iceland.
She has just filmed her first 30 minute pilot for Channel 4, THE BRIDGET CHRISTIE TELEVISION PROGRAMME, and is also working on a narrative script for the channel.
She is also developing a sitcom with BBC Radio 4, as her last series UTOPIA, went out earlier this year to universal critical acclaim and her debut series BRIDGET CHRISTIE MINDS THE GAP, was broadcast in April 2013 and received numerous awards.
Having tour extensively for many years, she has bagged herself a number of awards, including the Chortle Awards.
Besides touring and radio shows, she has also written her debut book, A BOOK FOR HER in 2015, and she had also had a popular weekly column in Guardian Weekend magazine, for which she gained a Glamour Magazine 2016 award nomination for Columnist of the Year.
Bridget’s last four Edinburgh festival fringe shows have been in the Top 5 best reviewed shows of the fringe, and her last show (Because You Demanded It) was named the top rated comedy show of the fringe by The List magazine. See her yourself…
