Kiri Pritchard McLean: Chortle Award Nominee 2016 and Finalist Leicester New Comedian of the Year 2015

Welsh Comedian Kiri Pritchard-Mclean has been making something of a name for herself in the short time she’s being performing stand up comedy and has achieved further success as one fourth of multi-award winning sketch group Gein’s Family Giftshop (in capacity as writer/director).
A unique and assured comic voice Kiri is whip smart with material to match, an apprenticeship on the North West comedy scene equips Kiri with a presence beyond her years and the rare ability to be challenging in her material without alienating her audience.

“Kiri was by far the funniest and quick witted, one to look out for in the future”Leicester Mercury

LGBT+ History Month is a fantastic opportunity to combat this, sparking discussion and opening powerful…
