About The Guilty Feminist Presents The Secret Policeman’s Podcast

Hosted by Deborah Frances-White

The Guilty Feminist joins forces with Amnesty International UK to bring The Secret Policeman back to life for 2018! Following the magnificent Secret Policeman’s tradition of presenting comedy greats for a night of misbehaviour, a hugely talented and diverse bill of performers will create some hysterical comedy and magical music. We will bring the funny to The Edinburgh Playhouse for two rocking, historical nights (but cannot guarantee the roof will be where it was when we leave).

The Secret Policeman’s Podcast brings together the best comics around to raise awareness and funds for Amnesty International – the shows will highlight the Families Together campaign, calling on the UK government to change the restrictive rules keeping refugees in the UK apart from those they love. The shows will also feature the case of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, imprisoned in Iran after an unfair trial and separated from her husband and young daughter.

Hosted by Deborah Frances-White, the shows will be recorded and edited for a podcast which will be available after the Fringe.

Please note, The Secret Policeman’s Podcast will be raising money for Amnesty International UK Section Charitable Trust. Amnesty International UK Section Charitable Trust is a charity registered in England and Wales (1051681) and Scotland (SC039534).
