“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). Read the full review here (if the new website will let you…).
This year, I’m teaming 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. Our next gig is 10th April at Bath Comedy Festival. Click here for details and to book.
Ravi is Rector of the Wye United Benefice; Kate is a chaplain and we met when we first performed together in a show called Holy Guacamole.
Ravi is 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.
MAGGY WHITEHOUSE is a Independent Catholic Priest and comedian. No, she’s not fluffy and no, she will not be trying to convert you. Think Father Ted but with a slightly better taste in cardigans. Maggy extracts the Archangel Michael out of religion and its stupidities from inside the box and reinterprets the Bible in a kick-ass kind of way. Look out for Maggy as a trusted and hysterical opener and closer on the UK comedy circuit.
“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.
Check out Maggy’s Spirited page on Facebook for further details. She is available for all kinds of events whether they be Spiritual shows or pub curry nights. Please contact her on firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
