The Birmingham Comedy Festival will feature two shows from the Free Fringe in 2014…
PAUL B EDWARDS: THE STORY OF MEDIEVAL ENGLAND FROM 1066 TO 1485…
…At Roughly Nine Years And Two Jokes Per Minute Incorporating The Hundred Years War As A Football Match And Of Course Scottish Independence Performed By Paul B. Edwards
KATE SMURTHWAITE: LEFTIE COCK WOMBLE
An hour of highbrow political comedy.
ThreeWeek’s Editor’s Choice 2013 Award-winner and writer for Have I Got News For You and BBC3 BAFTA-winning series The Revolution Will Be Televised, Kate is an increasingly familiar face after appearing on Question Time in January.
Her new show, as you’d expect, is highbrow, left-wing, feminist, atheist and awesome.
‘The verve with which she articulates her view on our land is monumental … when it comes to political comedy The News At Kate really is the cream of the crop’ – BroadwayBaby.com
‘An important and inclusive narrative on our society’ – ScotsGay.
’Comedy that cuts through the crap’ – ThreeWeeks
