Kate Cheka: A Messiah Comes (Work in Progress)

Funny Women Award winner of 2023 Kate Cheka brings her first hour WIP to Brighton Fringe. It is about how to save the world or at least save yourself and features thoughtful, often filthy observations on sex, capitalism and (pop) culture.

Other accolades include being a BBC New Comedy Award regional finalist 2022, Berlin New Stand-up Award finalist 2019, Funny Women Award semi-finalist 2021 and 2022 one-to-watch. Having performed across in eight countries across four continents Kate has been described as having ‘stylish comedy delivered with a blend of joy and disdain’.

'You'll be fine' - Stewart Lee

'She’s a smart operator, but wears it lightly, mixing opinionated stand-up with frank and relatable "what was I thinking?"-type personal anecdotes, all delivered with poise' - Steve Bennett, Chortle

'A confident set filled with surprising gags and to her ability to put a clever, unexpected twist on newsworthy topics... Kate is a multi-talented comic, with plenty up her sleeve and a lot more to share' - Zoe Paskett, Funny Women Review
