A Book for Her [9780099590842]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
Bridget Christie is a stand-up comedian, idiot and feminist. On the 30th of April 2012, a man farted in the Women's Studies Section of a bookshop and it changed her life forever. A Book For Her details Christie's twelve years of anonymous toil in the bowels of stand-up comedy and the sudden epiphany that made her, unbelievably, one of the most critically acclaimed British stand-up comedians this decade, drawing together the threads that link a smelly smell in the women's studies section to the global feminist struggle. Find out how nice Peter Stringfellow's fish tastes, how yoghurt advertising perpetuates rape myths, and how Emily Bronte used a special ladies' pen to write Wuthering Heights. If you're interested in comedy and feminism, then this is definitely the book for you. If you hate both then I'd probably give it a miss. Christie is adept at turning on a sixpence between being comical, or serious, or both at once, and at pricking her own earnestness. (Telegraph). Christie piles derision and tomfoolery upon everyday sexism, while never pretending that jokes alone will solve the problem. (Guardian).
AUTHOR: Bridget Christie is a stand-up comedian, writer and actor. She is the winner of the Fosters Edinburgh Comedy Award (2013), South Bank Sky Arts Award for Comedy (2014), Rose D'Or International Broadcasting Award (2014) and four Chortle comedy industry awards, voted for by comedy fans, from 2014 and 2015. She was also nominated for a Radio Academy Award (2014) and a British Comedy Award for Best Female Television Comic (2014). Her 2013 show A Bic for Her became the top-selling comedy show at the Soho Theatre ever. Bridget can also load and fire a 17th century musket (though not while under pressure or any time constraints), scuba dive and drive a tractor. She lives in north London with her family and cat.
