Bridget Christie ‘Who Am I’ 2021 Tour dates

The Edinburgh Comedy Award, Rose D’Or and South Bank Sky Arts Award winner Bridget Christie presents her highly-anticipated, brand-new show Who Am I?

The Edinburgh Comedy Award, Rose DOr and South Bank Sky Arts Award winner Bridget Christie presents her highly-anticipated, brand-new show Who Am I?

Who Am I? will be Bridgets 13th show.  Previous shows include A Bic For Her which won the Fosters Award for Best Show at the 2013 Edinburgh Festival, a South Bank Sky Arts Award, and became the best-selling show at the Soho Theatre ever. Her Brexit-themed show, Because You Demanded It, was named as The Guardians No 1 Comedy of the Year in 2016 and won the Chortle Award for Best Show (her second Best Show Chortle Award).  Other nominations and awards include a British Comedy Award for Best Female Comic, a Rose dOr, a Sony Award, BBC Audio Drama Award, and five Chortle Awards.

Her current BBC Radio 4 series Mortal, an intimate lockdown audio diary recorded by Bridget at home and in the park, has also been well received:  (“Distinctive… substantial… thoughtful… funny” **** Steve Bennett, Chortle). The series 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.

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.

Her BBC Radio 4 series Bridget Christie Minds the Gap won Best Radio Series at the 2014 Chortle Awards, Best Radio Comedy at the 2014 Rose D’Or awards, and another Chortle Award – for best radio programme – in 2015. Her third series, Utopia, was a finalist in the Radio Drama Awards 2018, with Radio Times calling it “the funniest show on the radio in years”.

Her book, A Book for Her, received universal critical acclaim and was nominated for a Chortle Award.

TV-wise, Bridget has starred in a number of shows, including QI, Ghosts, Cardinal Burns, Harry Hills Alien Fun Capsule, Anna and Katy, Have I Got News for You, Room 101 and Kevin Eldon’s show Its Kevin.
