We are delighted to welcome to the festival two of the UK’s most admired second-generation Irish creative minds: Roisin Conaty and Bridget Christie.
Roisin won the Best Newcomer Award at the 2010 Edinburgh Festival, and went on to perform stand-up all over the world. She is a frequent guest on many TV panel shows on BBC and Channel 4, and has most recently released the second series of her own sitcom GameFace, which she originated, wrote and stars in.
Bridget is an Edinburgh Comedy Award, Rose D’Or and South Bank Arts award winner and star of her own Netflix special and award-winning BBC Radio 4 series. She has appeared in numerous other TV and radio programmes and has written a weekly column for the Guardian Weekend magazine.
We will be chatting with Roisin and Bridget about growing up as a second-generation Irish person in the UK, and getting their view on what influences, good and bad, come from having Irish heritage.
