Description

Witches be trippin'. Witches be cray. Witches be just nice old ladies who live independently in a woodland retreat. Joined by her familiar, Tom the Cat, comedian Holly Morgan summons your favourite witches through song (stand up Stevie Nicks!) to put a hex on the patriarchy, one (barely researched) historical anecdote at a time. Witch? Please! 'A young Caitlin Moran' ****(LondonTheatre1.com). Praise for previous work: **** (BroadwayBaby.com), 'Funny and poignant' **** (List), 'Seriously funny' **** (TheWeeReview.com).

Cheap PowerPoint presentation with a historical background of witchcraft across the world with a bunch of underwhelming jokes and uncomfortable punch lines.
Some political commentary, some other stories about tepid memories. Good for a college audience but not a professional festival.

I loved the historical and political commentary, I love a smart opinionated woman, sisterhood! However.. the Gaga impression is great but the other jokes fell a little flat. Good to see but wouldn’t be my first choice in future

Amazing show! 5/5 stars. Honestly it was my favourite show of the fringe and it was a last minute “that looks fun!” show, but oh my what a great decision.
Great stuff Holly! Very happy I got to see your fab show. X

I loved this show - funny, clever, with amazing singing and mimicry. It is a little bit stand-up comedy, a little cabaret, more than a pinch of historical/political discourse and a honeymoon slideshow.* All excellently supported by her husband aka Tom the cat.

*on the occasion we went, the projector bulb blew but it was handled so well by the performers that the audience were all firmly on their side. Still, I'm hoping to see it again with the full photographic experience.

The Feminist Fringe (3/5 stars) 111 days ago

Holly Morgan and Tom the cat take you through the mystical ages on a musical journey, summoning her favourite witches as she goes. Convinced from a young age that she was a witch, Holly Morgan uses her power and expertise to reassure the audience that we can all be a bit weird at times and what’s wrong with that?

One4Review (5/5 stars) 117 days ago

I like a show with a structure like an essay: explain what’s going to happen, make it happen, recap what you’ve done, and then produce a mic-drop for a finale. Ms Morgan, as well as being a wonderful performer, knows … Read More ...

Broadway Baby (5/5 stars) 118 days ago

It’s hard to make a comedy about the murder of 45,000 women but Holly Morgan does just that, and then some.Delving through the history of the witch through a feminist lens, she gives a truly poignant reminder of the horrors of the European and American witch hunt trials and shines...

The Wee Review (4/5 stars) 122 days ago

In Holly Morgan‘s third Fringe show in as many years, the comic/singer/writer returns to analysing the patriarchy through the prism of divas and cabaret. This year, the subject is witchcraft and, aided by her on-stage familiar (real-life husband Tom Moores dressed as a lycra black cat), Morgan’s show is a...

ScotsGay (5/5 stars) 123 days ago

It’s not very often that I can write that a comedian is an absolute witch on stage and I still get to give them 5 stars, but with Holly, that’s an absolute compliment. Holly and her husband Tom, acting as her familiar, take us through the history of witches which...
