Following sell-out Fringe shows in 2014, 2015 and 2016, comic Angela Barnes has taken to the road and will be calling at The Mill in Banbury.
On November 9 2016, two momentous things happened to Angela, which have deeply affected her. Donald Trump won the US election and she turned 40.
Now, Angela is in no rush to join the ranks of middle aged, she’s only just getting started. She didn’t become a comedian until 33, only learnt to swim when she was 37, didn’t fall in love until 38 and passed her driving test at 39.
Why the hurry? She is un-pensioned, un-married, un-mortgaged and a fully paid-up member of the Peter Pan generation.
People have stopped asking Barnes what she’s going to be when she grows up, and instead want to know when she is going to settle down.
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 BBC Three’s Russell Howard’s Good News, Russell Kane’s Whistle Stop Tour (BBC Radio 2), and BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show.
Angela will be heading to The Mill on Thursday March 29 at 8pm. For more information or to book tickets, call the box office on 01295 279 002 or visit themillartscentre.co.uk.
Tickets are £15.
