Board up the windows, loot a supermarket and then hide in the basement, it's "Hurricane Katie" and this is comedy carnage

Here's the trailer: https://youtu.be/m0Vw96o0q0M

Like the most memorable of UK gales, Katie Pritchard is blowing over the patio furniture of comedy, partially damaging the garden fence of genre and dropping a large, sturdy branch onto the car bonnet of musicality. For Katie specialises in all things Comedy Carnage, a term of her own (and in no way self-important) devising. To extend a metaphor already stretched to its limit, like all the best weather-based wind events Comedy Carnage, sweeps up a lot of stuff and hurls it together in one beautiful whirlwind of chaos. In this instance that chaos is jokes, music, poems, dancing and facts, rather than an actual literal whirlwind of cows, patio umbrellas, bill-boards and roofing materials, which would be terrifying for her audience, but is co-incidentally the name of her next show.

In this tiny twister of a U.K. mini-tour, star* (and *in this instance, please take ‘star’ to mean ‘sole performer’) of bookshop-centred comedy sketch podcast – “Literally Comedy” – Pritchard brings her show to as many venues as she can feasibly cram into her schedule, brain and tiny car!

So, batten down the hatches, put domestic pets on a high shelf and venture outside to enjoy some sublime craziness, all done in the name of fun and in a huge meteorological disappointment, in no way done with any further reference to the name of her actual show. Performing in her unique Alternative Musical Stand-Up style expect characters, shiny costumes, sweets, parodies and original songs on her Ukulele. Katie also arrogantly claims to be very proficient at impersonations of inanimate objects, and that she is a professional Kazoo player, both of which are either true or the ramblings of a woman with too much time on her hands.

It’s going to be one big magical mystery tour around the inner workings of her brain. Who knows what could happen? You will, when you come along.

"Sometimes surreal, often unusually perceptive, but always original and entertaining" ★★★★ (Female Arts Magazine)

"Katie Pritchard, a girl..." (Steve Bennett. Chortle)

"Bags of charm...a star of the future" (Notts Comedy Review)

"Rather brilliant.." (Everything Theatre)

    The Women in Comedy Festival

    Comedy

    Described as one of ‘the UK's best comedy festivals’ by the Skinny, Greater Manchester’s Women In Comedy Festival is Europes only comedy festival dedicated to gender equality.

    A ‘brilliant, brilliant festival’, full to the brim with female comedic talent. ‘Get it booked, get on down’ is the recommendation from City Life.

    The Women In Comedy Festival, produced by Dulcet Sounds, takes place annually in Greater Manchester, UK during October.

    ‘Set up as a reaction to the sidelining of women comics by club owners back in the day, Manchester’s homegrown Women In Comedy Festival (set up by Hazel O’Keefe) has found its feet in a very short space of time - attracting the likes of actress Maxine Peake as a patron, joining Jo Enright and Isy Suttie.’ M.E.N

    Building on the success of Laughing Cows Comedy Night, the Festival launched in 2013 as a volunteer-led festival presenting both established and up and coming talent across the spectrum of stand up comedy, comedy theatre, improv performing arts, film, spoken work, comedy writing and visual arts.

    The fifth annual 2017 Women In Comedy Festival will take place from Thursday 19th until Sunday 29th October 2017

    Actor Maxine Peake joined the team of festival patrons last year. “I’m proud to be supporting the UK Women in Comedy Festival as a patron. A festival filled with laughter combined with feminist principles taking place in the North … what’s not to support!”

     

    The festival has grown steadily over the years since the first event in 2013 and encompasses solo shows, open mic events, a comedy writing competition showcases, galas, symposiums, networking events, training, panels, debates and workshops. The Women In Comedy Festival also offers training and mentorship opportunities with industry professionals and other leading creative organisations.

     

    ‘It’s a very positive event, attracting massive headline acts.’ (Manchester Evening News)
