Dear Bridget Christie Fans!
Posted 9 months ago on March 3rd, 2023
Nippy isn’t it?
Ooooooo! Got me winter coat on inside!
Thanks so much for not unsubscribing to my newsletter.
Lots of comedians send them out once a month but I prefer the element of surprise approach.
How pleased are you to hear from me? See? If I sent one out regularly every month you’d see my name in your inbox and just go, “That month went quick” or “That was a long month” or “It can’t have only been 4 weeks since her last newsletter” or “I can’t believe I haven’t lost a single pound since her last newsletter” or “Jesus Christ I don’t think I can take another month of these Tory cunts” or “How come Rishi Sunak seems to get younger and younger and look more and more like a little boy who thought he was going into nursery to play with lorries (or dolls!) but has somehow found himself in an adult body wearing a suit and having to go into scary factories and talk about the Good Friday Agreement and run the country as each month passes” and things like that.
It’s much better that you see my name and go “A newsletter from Bridget Christie???? And “Well I never!!!!” and “Wonders will never cease!” Also, the longer I leave it between newsletters the more news I have for you.
For example, since my last newsletter I’ve become infertile AND vegan AND taken in a semi-feral cat.
Right that’s enough of the old chit chat. Stop distracting me!
WORK. WORK. WORK.
BRIDGET CHRISTIE ON TELLY
There’s a QI that went out the other week. I haven’t seen it but I had a lot of fun doing it.
Check it out if you like? I had a blue shirt on. It’s this one. BBC iPlayer – QI – Series T: 13. Tubular
My new star-studded Channel 4 comedy drama The Change is all handed in and waiting to be on your telly screens. Shouldn’t be too long to wait now. I will start sending out all manner of photos and juicy behind the scenes anecdotes about it when I get the go-ahead so keep your eyes peeled on me Instagrams and Twitters.
I am very excited about it being out in the world. There are some brilliant people involved. Read a description of it here and a bit more here.
BRIDGET CHRISTIE LIVE ON STAGEY
I’m doing a handful of Who Am I? tour shows this month that were scheduled in ages ago from the postponed tour.
Tickets almost all gone so please grab those final few.
You can read all the BRILLIANT reviews for it here.
The show is a lot about the menopause, which I am in as you very well know, a bit of politics and a bit of veganism.
All the nice reviews were written by men so it just goes to show that the menopause is for everyone guys, yeah?
Here’s the links for the March shows.

LATITUDE/DEER SHED FESTIVALS
Headline slots at these two. Can’t wait.
The cats have now all surrounded my shoe rack which means there is something either behind it or in one of my shoes, so basically I can’t go out until it comes out because I don’t want to put my toes into a rat bum or mouth.
Please pre-order Josie Long’s new book “Because I Don’t Know What You Mean And What You Don’t.”
She’s the best and you know it!
Oh, and if you haven’t got mine get that as well. A Book For Her.
Be kind, be good, be well!
