What's on/Brighton Fringe 2020/The Very Perry Show

Winner of the 2017 Best Comedy award at United Solo Festival, New York, The Very Perry Show is a happy hour of funny monologues inspired by people Perry has ‘collected’: An Amish woman with Shoofly Pie envy, an unhinged documentary maker, a pigeon fancier, a celebrity obsessed pensioner, a short-sighted butcher and a six year old ‘entertaining’ a captive audience on a long distance flight. Perry’s hilarious sketches have enthralled audiences in London, Dublin, Edinburgh, San Francisco and New York.

 

Kate is originally from Dungannon, Co. Tyrone and now lives in London. While living in San Francisco in the early 1990’s Perry developed her one-woman shows No Mate For The Magpie, My Name is Kate Perry and I’ve Been Drinking, touring them in the US and Ireland. She returned to Ireland to study for a Masters degree (with distinction) in Creative Writing at Trinity College, Dublin while she continued to perform on the stage and write for RTÉ, Woman’s Hour and BBC Radio 4. Actor Conleth Hill (double Olivier Award winner, Game of Thrones), Tamsin Greig (Episodes) and Doreen Keogh (The Royle Family) are just a few of the actors who have performed her work.
