Lefty Cock Womble – 2014 Edinburgh Fringe

Kate Smurthwaite again, and again I didn't realise I'd seen her before at this Fringe. This time, I have even less of an excuse as the flyer has this on one side and The Evolution.. on the other. Ahem.

This one's a continuation of the 'News at Kate' political shows, the title coming from the incomprehensible Twitter hashtag used by people who didn't like her 'highbrow leftie atheist feminist' comments on the BBC's Question Time.

Subjects covered include some easy targets (how bad the Daily Mail Online is) and some edgier material (she is a spokesperson for Abortion Rights UK, and delightfully describes herself as pro-abortion rather than pro-choice). Again, her passion for the material comes across extremely well, and you'll doubtless learn something here too. Also definitely recommended.

4/5

On at 5pm at Viva Mexico (venue 274) until the 23rd August (not the 12th).
