Kate Barron: Work In Progress
  • London Fringe

In her Fringe debut, one of the rising stars of the UK stand-up scene shares a raw, honest and hilarious hour of tales& with just the right amount of filth. Join the Canadian comedian as she tells her very personal story of how living in a new country in a global pandemic led her to take a drastic decision without telling a soul, and returns to the stage over 13 stone lighter, in more ways than one. 'Blunt, bold, ballsy and brilliant' (LeicestershirePress.com). The Bridge House Theatre's season of Edinburgh preview comedies are in association with 'Live From' comedy events, our monthly stand up nights, for more info on our regular stand-up programming.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
