“It’s the most addictive thing you’ll ever do,” says Kitty Flanagan, comedian and author. “Getting a laugh for the first time on a stage is just absolutely addictive.”
It’s safe to say that if you’ve ever seen Kitty perform on stage or on television, you’ll know just how talented she is at reducing her audience to a mess of laughter. It’s a prerequisite, after all, for being one of Australia’s best known comedians. Bridge Burning and Other Hobbies is her collection of hilarious and honest cautionary tales.
“That’s been the hardest thing about writing a book – not getting the feedback immediately.”
Writing a book was a new challenge for Kitty but we’re so glad she stuck with it to bring us Bridge Burning and Other Hobbies. Inside her book, you’ll read about, among other things, the time Kitty was locked inside an industrial freezer in Western Australia. …what? How does that even happen?
Read her book and find out! Her stories will have you laughing in no time. Have a listen to our podcast interview below:
