“There is a great need for a performer like Maggy Whitehouse – an outspoken, slightly sweary female priest – it makes a refreshing counterbalance to the Robin Ince/Brian Cox atheist axis that has been in unchallenged ascendancy. Who would have thought that religion would become the new ‘alternative’? - TV Bomb.
“Funny, warm and strangely inspirational. Gives me faith in comedy” – Paul Tonkinson.
The deliciously funny Rev. Maggy Whitehouse knows a lot more about God’s amusing side, and so she should—she is an ordained Minister as well as a stand-up comedian and author. Maggy offers a side splitting look at religion, the Bible, other priests and what really happens in the hatches, matches and dispatches. But be warned, one thing she is NOT is the cutesy funny vicar. This lady has bite.
Maggy is a former BBC World Service journalist and presenter and an inspired MC for events as well as a uniquely funny act. She is a regular presenter on BBC Radio Devon, blogs for the Huffington Post, is the author of 17 books on religion, spirituality and Bible history and four novels including The Miracle Man which looks at what might happen if Simon Cowell were the Messiah...
She lives in Devon and gigs regularly in London, Birmingham and the South West.
