Left-wing political comedy from the all new unwilling poster child for free speech. ThreeWeeks' Award winner as seen on Question Time, The Big Questions and This Morning, but too controversial for Goldsmith's College.

'Hilarious ... a powerhouse of observational wit' (Spectator). 'An important and inclusive narrative on our society' (ScotsGay). 'The verve with which she articulates her views on our land is monumental' (BroadwayBaby.com). 'Comedy that cuts through the crap' (ThreeWeeks). 'You come across as not only being hypocritical, but incompetent and mendacious' (Frankie Boyle).

After winning a 2013 Three Weeks Editors' Choice Award, the left wing, feminist, atheist, highbrow comedian Kate Smurthwaite has been writing for BAFTA-winning BBC Three show The Revolution Will Be Televised and the UK's most popular political comedy show Have I Got News For You. She has toured across the UK and overseas and talked and performed at dozens of rallies and benefits up and down the land.

Her award-winning show The News At Kate: My Professional Opinion was filmed on the South Bank as part of the Women of The World (WOW) festival. You can see it here:

Kate's other achievements include appearances on over 700 TV and radio shows including This Morning, Woman's Hour, The Big Questions, Moral Maze and Question Time. She writes regular humourous columns for New Internationalist, Feminist Times and The Teacher and has also written for The Guardian, The Independent and Cosmopolitan.

Kate has two other shows at the fringe: she is hosting a political comedy panel show called Comedy Manifesto and MCing the Free Fringe's late night variety show Late With Kate (guest host on 17th).
