Comedian Kate Smurthwaite is returning to her home town to work once again with Bury Fringe, leading a professional comedy workshop at The Apex, open to both beginners and more seasoned comedy performers alike.

The workshop on Sunday, November 16 will be followed by an evening performance which will include Kate’s latest

Edinburgh Fringe show.

It is about language and how we use it in politics, activism and the media, free speech, hate speech and reclamation.

On the workshop, Kate says: “I can’t promise you your own TV series just yet, but I can promise you will have a really fun time and that at the end you’ll look really cool in front of your friends and families and be on a total high for a week.

“Complete beginners are welcome and if you have done gigs before you can expect to develop a whole new chunk of material that will help you progress along to bigger and more prestigious clubs”.

She is one of the most prolific political comedians on the circuit with more than 700 TV and radio show appearances to her name, including This Morning, Woman’s Hour, The Big Questions and The Moral Maze as well as Question Time.

Workshop places are limited to 12. The evening performance in The Apex lounge will begin at 8pm.
