What are Tory feminists? How did Hitler choose soups in restaurants? Why isn't there a Spielberg blockbuster about donkeys, and why did Colonel Gadaffi hate them? Bridget Christie knows. And will wear stilts. Baffling stand-up and grotesque manifestations from someone who's been on Radio 4's The News Quiz, E4's Cardinal Burns, Sarah Millican's Support Group and Harry Hill's Little Internet Show. 'Avant-garde comedian of prodigious talent' (Guardian). 'True, beautiful insanity' (Sunday Times). 'Brilliant political bite' (Arts Desk). 'Insightful, intelligent, absurd ... hits highs of genuine brilliance' (Chortle.co.uk).

And will buy one audience member a donkey for a year. Baffling stand-up and grotesque manifestations from "a writer and performer of prodigious talent" Guardian
