If you had not been able to see her show, at least you can read Bridget Christie:
A Book for Her
Bridget Christie
Published by Century, part of Cornerstone Publishing
Format: Hardback
ISBN: 9781780892207
Published: 2 Jul 2015

Bridget Christie is a stand-up comedian, idiot and feminist. On the 30th of April 2012, a man farted in the Women’s Studies Section of a bookshop and it changed her life forever.
A Book For Her details Christie’s twelve years of anonymous toil in the bowels of stand-up comedy and the sudden epiphany that made her, unbelievably, one of the most critically acclaimed British stand-up comedians this decade, drawing together the threads that link a smelly smell in the women’s studies section to the global feminist struggle.
Find out how nice Peter Stringfellow’s fish tastes, how yoghurt advertising perpetuates rape myths, and how Emily Brontë used a special ladies’ pen to write Wuthering Heights.
If you’re interested in comedy and feminism, then this is definitely the book for you. If you hate both then I’d probably give it a miss.
