This is a benefit show for Devon Rape Crisis and Sexual Abuse Services

1 hour show, 40 mins Q&A

Left-wing, highbrow, feminist, atheist comedian Kate Smurthwaite finally takes on the issue right at the very heart of women’s rights: men. And she’s taken “getting inside the subject” to a new level – performing the whole show in drag as her male alter-ego Milo Standards!

From cage fighting to dating, the football terraces to the House of Lords, Smurthwaite will be asking what men in the 21st century are up to and more importantly – why?!

Kate has been on Question Time, The Big Questions, The Moral Maze and This Morning, was a 2013 ThreeWeeks Editors’ Choice award winner and is a writer for Have I Got News For You? and BBC3’s BAFTA-winning The Revolution Will Be Televised. She writes a regular humourous column for New Internationalist magazine and has also been published in The Guardian, The Independent, The Telegraph, Cosmopolitan and Stylist.
