Kate Smurthwaite’s Clit Stirrer show is a roller coaster of darkness and laughs

Kate SI went to see Kate Smurthwaite’s solo show Clit Stirrer at the Workman’s Club in Dublin last night, introduced by Margo Carr. The show is a roller-coaster of darkness and laughs, mixing intelligent political commentary with creative puns, and reminding us which is more important.

Kate starts by sharing a disturbing true story that makes us forget we are at a comedy gig, then segues into a biting satire of television adverts and the politics of injustice, together with a video compilation of some of her best television appearances.

Like many of us who speak out about anything, Kate gets a ridiculous amount of online abuse, and this show responds to that. Clit Stirrer highlights that, while some call Kate controversial, what should be more controversial is the reality that her material describes.
