Kiri Pritchard-McLean: Empathy Pains


    Please see our statement regarding the COVID-19 Coronavirus epidemic

    We have sadly cancelled Kiri Pritchard-McLean’s performance. We are contacting all ticket holders to ask them to gift the cost of their ticket as a donation to the theatre, to credit accounts or to arrange refunds. Please bear with us while we work through this as quickly as we can.

    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.
