Edinburgh Preview: Felicity Ward

Felicity Ward

Felicity Ward was one of the first comedians to make a splash on The John Bishop Show. I tuned in expecting the usual Saturday night supermarket checkout/airport security blandness and instead got this fast-talking Australian on a roll with material about racism, religion and sexism. I think the audience was a little taken aback too, but thanks to Ward’s sheer force of personality they soon went with it. I don't know why I was surprised, this experienced comedian has been winning prizes and doing formidable candid, unrestrained shows for years, most notably The Hedgehog Dilemma, about relationship issues and much more. Her latest show, What If There Is No Toilet?, is about “mental illness, irritable bowel syndrome and her search for the nearest toilet.” Maybe next time she is on primetime she will do her IBS routine too. 

Felicity Ward is at Up In Arms, SE5, tonight with Bridget Christie, tickets here, and at The Pleasance from Aug 5 - 31,  tickets here.
