Edinburgh Comedy Award, Rose D’Or and South Bank Sky Arts Award winner Bridget Christie is to tour the UK this autumn with her brand-new stand-up show Who Am I?
Who Is Bridget Christie?
In 2016, Bridget recorded her debut stand-up special – Stand Up for Her (Live from Hoxton Hall) – released direct to Netflix in 2017, making her the first British female stand-up on the streaming service.
In 2019 she became the 14th curator of Radio 4’s The Museum of Curiosity and headlined the Leeds and Reading festivals.
Bridget’s current BBC Radio 4 series Mortal is a collection of informative, personal and absurd recordings that confront the difficult questions most of us spend our lives avoiding – covering birth, life, death and the afterlife – and all whilst being interrupted by cats, chores, children, foxes and a plumber.
Of the series, Harry Hill declares it to be the “funniest, most original thing I’ve heard on the radio for a long time,” while Jon Ronson says: “Bridget Christie is just so exceptionally funny and inventive. Mortal beautifully reflects these strange days of people spending too much time at home talking to themselves. Bridget is just so constantly unique!”
The whole series is now available on BBC Sounds, and you can hear the shows here: www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/m000v2sx
