What’s On: Grace Campbell: Why I’m Never Going Into Politics

Tour de force Grace Campbell survived a childhood in British politics, to become a critically acclaimed comedian, writer, film-maker and activist.

Storming the Edinburgh Fringe with a complete sell-out run, she is about to embark on a national tour, kicking off in London at the Soho Theatre for two nights on February 17.

Grace said she has been taking on powerful men from a very young age when she was growing up in and around Westminster, starting with her father Alastair Campbell and his ex-boss Tony Blair.

Since then Grace said she has challenged the patriarchy with her feminist collective The Pink Protest. Now, she wants to have a friendly fight with the world she grew up in – politics.

In Grace’s debut stand-up show, you can expect vagina jokes, why she thinks she caused Brexit, anecdotes of hanging out with Putin’s kids, plus trying and failing to bring the Labour Party back together.

As an activist, Grace co-founded the feminist collective, the Pink Protest, which has changed laws in the UK around period poverty and gender inequalities.

Grace turned her hand to writing and producing, making her television debut on Channel 4’s feminist prank show Riot Girls which starred comics Sophie Duker, Jen Wakefield and Cam Spence challenging British society’s default sexism.
