Following a hugely successful Edinburgh Fringe season, Rosie takes this brand-new show on the road, to tightrope the thin line between politics and entertainment.

The worse the political career, the more lucrative the subsequent entertainment opportunities. Matt Hancock may have slaughtered millions but now he’s making a killing. So can Rosie Holt’s viral hit MP follow “politainers” Dorries, Farage and Rees-Mogg and leap from the pages of Hansard to Heat?

Rosie is an acclaimed comedian, actor and satirist, whose popular videos on social media have achieved more than 6.5 million views. She is the host the podcast Noncensored, and has been seen/heard on The Russell Howard Hour (Sky Max), and BBC Radio 4’s The News Quiz, DM’s Are Open, and Ashley Blaker: 6.5 Children, among many other credits.
