Triumphant return

Ha! At last, Kate Smurthwaite gets to do a gig at Goldsmiths after all.

The Goldsmiths Atheist, Secularist and Humanist society will be holding a stand-up show featuring the triumphant return of Kate Smurthwaite to perform along with comedian James Ross. Tickets are free but limited so please confirm on Eventbrite, alcohol will be provided and we will be collecting money for Refugee action at the event, so bring your coins!

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.

About a year ago, I think.

Her new comedy solo show is called “The wrong sort of Feminist” and is about her barring from Goldsmiths last year, choice and freedom, the feminist movement, the treatment of asylum seekers in Britain, Couples Come Dine with Me and edible pants.

Her show has had great reviews with Three weeks saying its “comedy that cuts through the crap”, Broadway baby saying “The verve with which she articulates her views on our land is monumental”, the Spectator saying ““Hilarious… A powerhouse of observational wit” and Scotsgay noting “An important and inclusive narrative… a brilliant comedian”.

I’ve seen her perform, and thought she was brilliant.

James Ross will be performing “Leopardoptera” and describes his style of comedy as “High-energy, left field stand-up for people who’ve read a book, without pictures, and enjoyed it.” He has performed at the edinburgh fringe with his hour long show which has been described as “freaking genius” by Threeweeks and “one to watch” by the daily mirror and Chortle describing him as “the sort of person children stare at on buses”.

Doors at 7pm, show at 8pm onwards.
