Katy Brand talks religion at Leamington's Spa Centre

Ian Hughes 1st Jun, 2017   0

COMEDIENNE Katy Brand brings her hit Edinburgh Festival show I Was a Teenage Christian to Leamington’s Spa Centre on June 16.

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, convinced she had secured her place in heaven.

But now she’s not so sure, as she relives her glory days of certainty and judgement -and unrequited love – while trying to figure out what was going on in her own head.

Brand performed her first professional comedy gig in a London pub in 2004, before joining acclaimed sketch comedy troupe Ealing Live!, and touring around the country with her own show.

She won a British Comedy award for her TV sketch series Katy Brand’s Big Ass Show in 2008 and has since written for and appeared in numerous films, TV programmes and radio shows.

Her first novel, Brenda Monk is Funny, was published in 2014. She has also worked as a journalist, screen writer, actor, comedian and director.
