Katy Brand: Edinburgh Fringe 2016
1st July 2016
Katy Brand returns to Edinburgh Fringe for the first time in a decade with her stand-up debut, I Was A Teenage Christian.
One Sunday, aged 13, Katy went to a local church service and became a fundamentalist Christian. From then on she attended church four times a week. For seven years she put the ‘fun’ into fundamentalism. And the ‘mental’. She was an obnoxious, self-important dick but at least she knew she was going to heaven. Now she’s not so sure.
In her first live show in six years, Katy relives her glory days of certainty and judgement, whilst trying to figure out what the hell was going on in her own head.
