Fern Brady: Power & Chaos at the Berlin FringeThursday, July 11, 2019 | 7:30pm - 8:30pm
As seen on Live from the BBC, Live from the Comedy Store, The Russell Howard Hour, Frankie Boyle’s New World Order and Live at the Apollo (the first Scottish woman to do so), Fern is one of the UK’s hottest comedy stars. Known for being totally unique and completely fearless, her new show will tackle nationality, sexual identity, power dynamics and female beauty standards all with her caustic wit, exceptional writing and electric stage craft. The show debuted at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival where it sold out in addition to a sellout run at Sydney Comedy Festival, gaining glowing reviews along the way.
Other credits include 8 Out of 10 Cats, Comedy Central’s Roast Battle and Seann Walsh’s Late Night Comedy Spectacular. Fern has also appeared multiple times on BBC Radio 4’s The News Quiz, The Now Show & BBC Scotland’s political panel show Breaking the News. Brady wrote a sitcom pilot for BBC Three (Radges) which has since been optioned by BBC Worldwide and sold to Snapchat in the US. Other US credits include her stand up album Male Comedienne which was bought by Comedy Dynamics following the success of her 2017 Edinburgh show of the same name. Brady is currently developing a new pilot for BBC studios in addition to writing a play for the Lyceum Theatre in Edinburgh.
