Stand-Up's Satirical Alter-Ego Brings Her Wisdom Bestowing Mxinfesto To Komedia Brighton

Mxinfesto - coming to Komedia Brighton - takes the form of a confrontational lecture in which Andrew Doyle's satirical alter-ego Titania McGrath guides her audience through the, often bewildering, array of terminology and concepts that constitute 21st century "wokeness". 

Having conquered the world of social media, Titania is now generously bestowing her wisdom onto a live audience. 

Her step-by-step guide will enable her audience to become the woke people they need to be in an increasingly progressive world. 

In a non-patronising manner, Titania will explain where exactly they are going wrong and how to be more like her.

Doyle says of Titania McGrath:

"Titania McGrath is a satirical take on the rise of a new kind of moral puritanism. 

"She is the kind of humourless, po-faced, judgemental activist who is able to find offence in anything. 

Who is Titania McGrath?

"She believes in a kind of social justice utopia that can be achieved if activists like her can only control the language, thoughts and behaviour of the population. 

"Although from a wealthy background, she nonetheless considers herself to be a victim of the heteronormative patriarchy. 

"She represents the type of identity-obsessed mindset that has infected the Left and has led it to become unelectable. 

"As an activist she is vicious and deeply intolerant of anyone with an alternative view. 

"That is to say, although she is fond of accusing others of bigotry, she is the living embodiment of the concept."
