Maggy Whitehouse is a unique stand-up comedian and award-winning comedy writer. She won best consumer essay writer in the US Folio ‘Eddie’ Awards, November 2023, for her very funny article, ‘Ashes to Ashes’ about the perils and pitfalls of being a funeral minister.

Maggy is a talented and confident performer, with 30+ years of radio and television presenting experience behind her. She’s also pretty darn funny. You can see Maggy mostly on the South West Comedy circuit in the UK but she is available for private events. She had three hundred participants in tears of laughter at the UMMAS clergy retreat at Lake Junaleska, North Carolina, in October 2023.

“What do you call a vicar who has you crying with laughter? Maggy Whitehouse!”

— West Magazine.
“Maggy Whitehouse is one of the most unique, distinctive & brilliantly subversive acts I’ve seen in years. Essential booking. Oh and funny. Very funny.”

— Chris Brooker, Bigmouth Comedy.
“There is a great need for a performer like Maggy Whitehouse—an outspoken, slightly sweary female Catholic priest (don’t worry, she explains how this is possible)—it makes a refreshing counterbalance to the Robin Ince/Brian Cox atheist axis that has been in unchallenged ascendancy.”

— The Wee Review (Formerly TV Bomb).
No, Maggy is not fluffy and no, she will not be trying to convert you. Think Father Ted but with a slightly better taste in cardigans. She extract the Archangel Michael out of religion and its stupidities from inside the box and reinterprets the Bible in a kick-ass kind of way.
“Funny, warm and strangely inspirational. Gives me faith in comedy.”

— Paul Tonkinson.

Ridiculously funny.”

Very, very funny —  Pete Best, Squawkers Comedy. Exeter, 2024.
“Bloody good.”

— Kernow King, BBC Cornwall.
“A witty presence, acknowledging her unusual place in an atheist-dominated comedy circuit, with an excellent comeback to hecklers.”

—Steve Bennett, Chortle, UK Comedy guide.
“Deliciously hilarious.”

— Martin Besserman, Monkey Business, London.
