Kate Smurthwaite: ‘The Wrong Sort of Feminist (plus post-show Q&A)’
6-8pm, Room H051
Left-wing, highbrow, feminist, atheist comedy from Kate Smurthwaite - ThreeWeeks award winner and writer for Have I Got News For You? and BBC3’s BAFTA-winning The Revolution Will Be Televised. Kate has appeared on Question Time and is a regular on The Big Questions, The Moral Maze and This Morning but was recently deemed “too controversial” for Goldsmith’s College.
Her new comedy solo show is about choice and freedom, the feminist movement, the treatment of asylum seekers in Britain, Couples Come Dine with Me and edible pants.
"Smurthwaite ensures there is much to laugh about, from longer stories to witty one-liners; it’s a great hour of entertainment. But, as a musing on the current state of free speech in our society, the hierarchy of language, its intricacies and efficacy, this is a very clever show." - Exeunt Magazine
