Award-winning comedian Samantha Baines has announced a small UK tour for 2018 taking in 8 dates starting on 8th February at the Leicester Comedy Festival.
Her critically acclaimed hour ‘1 Woman, A High-Flyer & A Flat Bottom’ already completed a sell out run at 2017’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival and has a forthcoming run at Soho Theatre this December. Expect facts, puns and an ear trumpet attached to a whiskey bottle. Samantha’s naturally charming wit ensures big laughs and her boundless enthusiasm for science means you might learn a little something too.
‘1 Woman, A High-Flyer & A Flat Bottom’ explores the lost women of science and readdresses the balance of doing a whole show last year about a fella - Brian Cox. She has chosen three ground-breaking women from an inventor, pilot and engineer, who should be household names but have mostly been completely lost from the history books. It explores the ladies lives and achievements.
Acting wise Samantha has had a stellar year and was seen in ‘Sunny D’ (alongside Dane Baptiste) and the award winning series The Crown, Call The Midwife, Bucket (alongside Miriam Margolyes. Later this year she can be seen in the forthcoming series of Silent Witness.
