‘The most original act I have seen for years.’ Harry Hill

Bridget Christie: War Donkey

What are Tory feminists? Why isn’t there a Spielberg blockbuster about donkeys? Why does the Women’s Studies section in Waterstones smell of farts? Bridget Christie knows. Baffling stand-up, juvenile costumes and exploding balloons from ‘a writer and performer of prodigious talent’ (Guardian).

War Donkey received 10 four star reviews and was featured on BBC2’s Culture Show as one of Sue Perkins’ Top 5 shows of the Fringe (alongside Tony Law’s Maximum Nonsense). It was also picked as one of GQ’s Ten Essential Edinburgh Shows.

Bridget Christie is a regular panellist on Radio 4’s News Quiz and the Broadcasting House Programme. She has recently filmed a cameo role in Anna and Katy’s new series for Channel 4, and a spot for Comedy Central’s new The Alternative Comedy Experience. She has starred in a number of TV and radio comedies including Sarah Millican’s Support Group, Miranda Hart’s House Party, Dilemma, Cardinal Burns on E4 and Harry Hill’s Little Internet Show, and has recently appeared live as a special guest on Alexei Sayle Presents.
