Katy Brand is bringing her hit Edinburgh Festival show ‘I Was a Teenage Christian’ to the Oakengates Theatre, when she will give an honest, fascinating and funny exploration of her self-imposed conversion and total immersion in evangelical Christianity. She performed her first professional comedy gig in a London pub in 2004 and by 2008 had won a British Comedy Award for her TV sketch series Katy Brand’s Big Ass Show. She has worked as a journalist, screen writer, actor, comedian and director – and had her first novel, Brenda Monk is Funny, published in 2014. She really wanted to be an astronaut but didn’t have the maths.
Katy’s show takes to the stage on 8 June at 7.30pm, tickets cost £14; visit theplacetelford.com to find out more.
