Previous shows have seen her tackle structural racism, sexism, child grooming, adoption and emotional abuse so what seemingly unfunny subject has she picked to turn into laughs this year? Chernobyl? The shrinking size of creme eggs? No, empathy. Which sounds fine actually but maybe not the way Kiri tackles it.
Kiri thinks that we live in a time where empathy is seen as a weakness like asthma or being first to pull away from a handshake. But why is that? Surely what we need in these divided times is more empathy? So Kiri is off on a search to find a group of people who she struggles to empathise with, what could this mean…..? Well, it means she’s spent the last year talking to non offending paedophilles on the internet. Yup, her search history is a disaster. So, come and see her make the impossible hilarious or possibly get arrested.

In the interest of safety, some autumn tour shows will be moving to a new date in 2021; once a new date has been found, the venue will be in touch with ticket holders directly about refunds / transferring to the new date. After that, the shows will go on sale to everyone else here. Venues have a ton to do with very few staff at the moment so it would help them loads if you waited for them to contact you over the next few weeks.
