A riotously frank and funny evening with the Absolutely Fabulous star, stand-up and writer, Helen Lederer, who was at the heart of the alternative comedy scene of the 1980s. She offers a front row seat to her life as a pioneering female stand-up comedian, reveals just how tough it was to break through – and why she is now devoted to creating opportunities for other witty women.

Helen Lederer is a writer, actress, comedian, and presenter. Apart from TV, stage, and radio, she’s best known as Catriona, the dippy journalist in the TV series Absolutely Fabulous – although, her stay in the Big Brother house caused a different kind of notoriety. Her novel, Losing It, was nominated for the PG Wodehouse comedy literary prize. In 2019, Helen set up the Comedy Women in Print Prize (CWIP), to celebrate witty women writers. She lives in London.
