FRINGE 2019: The political power of comedy
Comedian. Activist. Wanker
Not our words, the actual words of comedian Grace Campbell on her website. The daughter of politician Alastair Campbell, Grace Campbell's show is acutely political.
Her solo debut hour, Why I'm Never Going Into Politics, reflects on her childhood in politics and her relationship with it now.
Speaking to JOE at the Fringe, Campbell discussed Trump and Boris Johnson and the political power of comedy.
“For a lot of people, Donald Trump and Boris Johnson being in power is incredibly terrifying. Being able to mock them is cathartic.”
