Kiri Pritchard-McLean: Empathy Pains


    Please see our statement regarding the COVID-19 Coronavirus epidemic

    This event was re-scheduled from its original date of 11 April to 30 Oct. The tour has since been delayed further and this show has now been re-scheduled to 22 April 2021. We have contacted all existing ticket holders for the original dates with details of how to transfer their bookings. 

    Multi award-winning comedian Kiri Pritchard-McLean (Have I Got News for You, Live at the Apollo, 8 out of 10 Cats, Frankie Boyle’s New World Order) is back.

    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 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. Which means she’s spent the last year talking to non-offending paedophiles on the internet. Yup, her search history is a disaster. So, come and see her make the impossible hilarious or possibly get arrested.
