Afterglow Festival

Debs Gatenby

August 4th, 2016  |  Published in Artists

Debs Gatenby is a British performer and comedian who has spent over 20 years at the coal face of comedy, moving from stand up into solo theatre shows. Highlights include performing at Edinburgh fringe, legendary London club night ‘Duckie’ and Manchester’s ‘Queer up North’, where she’s based.

Justin Vivian Bond says of Debs, “Debs Gatenby is a genius and one of the most hilarious tragedies I’ve ever laughed at. Go see her show. I did and I’ve got the tear stains to prove it!”

Her latest show is commissioned by Contact Theatre, Manchester (UK) and supported by Arts Council England.

She made her international debut at Afterglow 2015 with the Bunny of Hope and dreams of Amish Pride. (show page)
