“What do you call a vicar who has you crying with laughter? Maggy Whitehouse!”—West Magazine.
“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). Read the full review here (if the new website will let you…).
This year, I also teamed up with Rev’d Kate Bruce and Rev’d Ravi Holy (yes, that’s his real name) as White Collar Comedy performing together around the UK. Ravi is Rector of the Wye United Benefice; Kate is an RAF chaplain and we met when we first performed together in a show called Holy Guacamole.
Ravi is regularly featured on Radio Two’s Pause for Thought. Kate and I are just too weird.
As the old saying goes: if you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together. You can find out more about us on our Facebook page.
I’m probably the world’s only Independent Catholic Priest and comedian. No, I’m not fluffy and no, I will not be trying to convert you. Think Father Ted but with a slightly better taste in cardigans. I extract the Archangel Michael out of religion and its stupidities from inside the box and reinterpret the Bible in a kick-ass kind of way. Look out for me as a trusted and hysterical opener and closer on the UK comedy circuit — oh and I’m starting to get bookings as an after dinner speaker too talking about my crazy and wonderful life of miracles.
“Funny, warm and strangely inspirational. Gives me faith in comedy.”—Paul Tonkinson.
“Ridiculously funny.”—Adam Hills, presenter of The Last Leg.￼
“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.
