Political satirist Rosie Holt is bringing her show That’s Politainment! to Farnham Maltings on May 10 next year.
The worse the political career, the more lucrative the subsequent entertainment opportunities. Matt Hancock may have slaughtered millions but now he’s making a killing. So, can Rosie’s viral hit MP character follow in the footsteps of ‘politainers’ Dorries, Farage and Rees-Mogg and leap from the pages of Hansard to Heat?
A character-driven show, That’s Politainment! analyses the blend of politics and entertainment in today’s public sphere. Rosie explores current political trends audiences will too often recognise as she brings some much needed comic relief to them. She said: “I am so excited to be going on tour again and reminding everyone why this government is great.”
Rosie is best known for her satirical videos on Twitter, with more than 6.5 million views of her playing an MP skewering the political landscape. She won the Chortle Social Media Award 2022 and The Times named her online work in its ’10 Best Political Comedies’. Her recent Edinburgh Fringe show The Woman’s Hour sold out before the festival and extra dates were added.
