An Irishman Abroad

Bridget Christie is an award-winning comedian, actress and writer and this week she joins Jarlath to discuss being raised by Irish parents in a house where she was the youngest of nine children, leaving school at a very young age, breaking into alternative comedy, how an acceptance into drama school was her ticket out of a horrible career and much, much more.

Bridget speaks passionately about feminism, the perception of female artists, the screwed language around domestic abuse and why we should all spend less time in the company of our phones.
