Mary Bourke – Muffragette (Mary Bourke / The Stand Comedy Club)

By | Published on Friday 2 August 2013

Mary Bourke’s affable Irish accent and soft-spoken delivery wraps up her acidic wit and wry observations in a big, pretty, feminist bow. She’s on a one woman mission to re-brand feminists as “Muffragettes” (since some women recoil at the thought of being called a feminist), trying to take back the movement from the mythical man-haters and give it back to those crazy cats who just quite fancy equality. Don’t be afraid of the repeated use of the ‘f’ word however, as ‘Muffragette’ is a fun and frothy show. It’s peppered with pop culture references, with insightful and intelligent comedy about the society we live in and the media we consume. Vive la (Muffragette) revolution!

The Stand III & IV, until 25 Aug (not 1, 12), 5.50pm
