Kiri Pritchard-McLean: Empathy Pains

As the Dancehouse Theatre is now not opening before Autumn/Winter 2021, Kiri Pritchard-McLean on Fri 9th April 2021 has been cancelled. We will be looking for a date at the Dancehouse in the future, but please join Kiri's mailing list at as updates on this and future tours will be emailed to this list. A refund will be available from your original ticket vendor.

Multi award winning comedian Kiri Pritchard-McLean (Have I Got News for You, Live at the Apollo, 8 out of 10 Cats, Frankie Boyle's New World Order) is back with her fourth full length show. Previous shows have seen her tackle structural racism, sexism, child grooming, adoption and emotional abuse so what seemingly unfunny subject has she picked to turn into laughs this year? Chernobyl? The shrinking size of creme eggs? No, empathy. Which sounds fine actually but maybe not the way Kiri tackles it.

An impressive comic, making powerhouse standup from the thorniest of subjects.

The Guardian

Kiri thinks that we live in a time where empathy is seen as a weakness like asthma or being first to pull away from a handshake. But why is that? Surely what we need in these divided times is more empathy? So Kiri is off on a search to find a group of people who she struggles to empathise with, what could this mean...? Well, it means she's spent the last year talking to non-offending paedophiles on the internet. Yup, her search history is a disaster. So, come and see her make the impossible hilarious or possibly get arrested.
