Sonja Doubleday performs as comedian Cheekykita – Prague Fringe award winner, NATYS Finalist, Laughing Horse runner up, winner of Colchester New Comedian of the Year, and Funny Women regional finalist. The Manchester Wire describes this absurd character comedian clown as “one of the strangest acts you’re ever likely to see. But see her you must, because it’s very difficult to describe exactly why she’s a genius”. Fresh from the Edinburgh Fringe, where she was described as “Like Alice in Wonderland on Adderall… curious, shambolic and kind of magical” – The List. She has performed her physical, unusual and oddball comedy in and around the UK and beyond, wowing audiences with her sublime surrealness. This year, her one-woman Edinburgh show drew similarities to the Mighty Boosh and Spike Milligan. “it takes a very special performer to pull off a show of utter silliness and retain artistic integrity”, said Funny Women in their five star review. This “heavy metal female comedy with gothic overtones… Needs to be seen and enjoyed”.

‘Like The Mighty Boosh on crack’ ★★★★ – Broadway Baby
