A Book For Her
The best standup gigs and tours in autumn 2015
Written by Brian Logan in The Guardian on September 8th, 2015
After two brilliantly funny, committed feminist comedy shows in two years made her one of the country’s most indispensable comic voices, this year Bridget Christie is ranging more widely over the terrain of social justice. Tory cuts, race, Nigel Farage – all are given the Christie treatment (faux-flustered outrage, heavy sarcasm, clownish sense of her own ridiculousness). Add to that extracts from her new feminist tome A Book for Her, and you’ve another campaigning, hugely entertaining standup show.
