Three To See 2013: Comedy Kates

Katie Mulgrew

ThreeWeeks Co-Editor Caro Moses recommends comedy shows at the Edinburgh Fringe.

Good Breeding
Kate Fox’s show this year focuses on the subject of not wanting children, and how she’s always being told that she will change her mind. Which is interesting subject matter; but what it’s also important to note is the fact that she is a wonderful, enthralling storyteller, and comes approval-stamped by that Sarah Millican. A number of ThreeWeeks reviewers have loved her, and I can’t help feeling you will too.
Dragonfly, 3-24 Aug, (not 5, 12, 19).

The News At Kate 2013
The utterly venerable Kate Smurthwaite is a veteran of all things Fringe and makes frequent appearances all over your TV and Radio; for intelligent comedy and incisive political comment, you really can’t go wrong. Bitingly humorous, and all-over wonderful.
Ciao Roma/The Canon’s Gait, 3-25 Aug (not 13).

Katie Mulgrew: Your Dad’s Not Funny (pictured)
According to the blurb, Katie Mulgrew never wanted to be a stand up comedian, but I think we can all safely say that we’re glad that’s what’s happened. Well, I can safely say it, because I’ve heard that she’s a very promising performer who has supported the likes of The Boy With The Tape On His Face and Puppetry of The Penis, and is a much sought MC who specialises in oddball, anecdotal humour. Sounds good to me.
