Angela Barnes brings Edinburgh Fringe sell-out show to Barton

Comedian Angela Barnes is bringing her latest show, Rose Tinted, to Barton upon Humber’s Ropery Hall.

The show was a sell-out at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe earning some well-earned critical acclaim that she is now taking on tour.

“You may have seen or heard Angela on a number of topical comedy TV and radio shows, and do you know what? She is just about fed up of the news!” said Liz Bennet of The Ropewalk. “What’s more she’s anxious, she’s depressed and she’s fatigued. Bored of Brexit, tired of Trump and knackered by North Korea”.

According to Angela the world is going to hell in a handcart and being a natural pessimist, Angela is fed up of commentating on it all as it happens.

But can a renowned pessimist really find it in herself to accentuate the positive, look on the bright side and pop on her rose-tinted specs to make the bad stuff go away? Just for a little bit? Like maybe for an hour?

Or is she better off confronting the horrible stuff and laughing in its ugly face? This is stand-up and stories from a woman who is just, like the rest of us, trying to live her life… and wouldn’t mind a taste of that ignorant bliss she’s heard so much about!

Before becoming a comedian, Angela worked in health and social care. In 2011, she won the BBC New Comedy Award and became a finalist at the 2011 Latitude Festival New Act of the Year competition. Since then Angela has become a regular on BBC’s The News Quiz, Newsjack and Mock The Week. She has also appeared on Live at The Apollo (BBC2), The Now Show (BBC Radio 4), Stand Up For The Week (Channel 4 / Open Mic) and Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC3).

Angela will be taking to the Ropery Hall stage on Friday, September 27, at 8pm. Tickets cost £14 in advance or £16 on the door. Tickets can be bought online at www.roperyhall.co.uk, by telephoning 01652 660380 or in person at The Ropewalk’s Craft Gallery.
