The Guilty Feminist

Live At Vicar Street

March 26th 2019

  

Following her sold out show at Vicar Street as part of the Dublin Podcast Festival in October, comedian Deborah Frances-White returns with her acclaimed comedy podcast, The Guilty Feminist, recorded in front of a live audience.

Each episode, Deborah and her guests discuss their noble goals as 21st century feminists and the paradoxes and insecurities which undermine them.

“Hilarious, irreverent, eternally surprising, classy as hell, genius” Phoebe Waller-Bridge, The Guardian.

Deborah Frances-White is a stand-up comedian whose BBC Radio 4 series won The Writers Guild Award for Best Radio Comedy. Deborah is currently making a Channel 4 pilot of a topical satire show – Next Week’s News.

Her debut book, The Guilty Feminist, was published by Virago in September 2018.

“The result is a passionate, funny, fresh, thought-provoking read, as engaging as it’s informative. Towards the end, Frances-White observes: “Every day of my life, I’ll wake up and not be perfect. I’ll always do and think less-than-feminist things until the day I die.” The point being that Frances-White sees the funny side of her feminist stumbles and misfires, and she wants other women to relax a little too.” Barbara Ellen, The Guardian Review of The Guilty Feminist

“It can be pretty difficult to know what constitutes being an upstanding feminist these days, a fact that led Deborah Frances-White to create this much-loved podcast. Covering themes from menstruation and exercise to ethical clothing, she and her guests explore the contradictions and limitations of modern feminism in a way that never feels overly heavy. Plus, there’s a diverse pool of guests; recent interviewees have included FGM activist Leyla Hussein and actor Gemma Arterton.” – The Guardian’s 50 Best Podcasts 2018

“One of the greatest nights of my life. Thank you, Dublin! You know how to bring a rock concert to a podcast recording.” – said Deborah Frances-White after her last Dublin appearance at the Podcast Festival in October.
