Athena Kugblenu: Shaking Her Class

  • Athena Kugblenu live in London at Soho Theatre

The star of her own BBC Radio 4 series, BBC2’s Mock The Week and The Guilty Feminist podcast, presents her hotly anticipated new stand-up hour. 

Athena thought she had a middle class childhood until she remembers her mum was a dinner lady. How did her mum achieve that illusion? Was she selling other stuff to those kids to pay for the Megadrive? Or is class a state of mind as much as it’s a state of money? 

Fresh from the success of Athena’s Cancel Culture on BBC Radio 4, and with her own upcoming half-hour stand-up special airing soon, don’t sleep on witnessing this rising talent. 

Athena has regularly appeared on BBC2’s Mock The Week, and is a writer for BBC2’s Frankie Boyle’s New World Order and Sky’s The Russell Howard Hour.
