Kate Smurthwaite is a stand-up comedian, writer and campaigner. She has toured her political comedy shows including My Professional Opinion, Leftie Cock Womble, The Wrong Sort Of Feminist, Smurthwaite On Masculinity and her latest critically acclaimed ForniKATEress around the UK and overseas. In 2013 Kate was awarded a Three Week's Editor's Choice award declaring her one of the ten best things about the Edinburgh Fringe. Earlier this year The Spectator wrote "One of the wittiest gun-slingers I've ever seen...She can cover the full spectrum from crunchy political interviews to live prime-time comedy. Is there anyone else at TV centre who could take over from David Dimbleby as well as Graham Norton?"

She is a writer for Have I Got News For You and BBC3's BAFTA-winning The Revolution Will Be Televised and has written columns for The Guardian, The Independent, New Internationalist, New Statesman, Cosmopolitan and Stylist. She has appeared as a panelist on Question Time, The Moral Maze, The Big Questions and many other TV and radio shows as well as the This Morning sofa discussing everything from child refugees to female body hair.
