This ain't no joke: Feminist comedian Bridget Christie at the top of the world - and the Edinburgh International Comedy Festival. The British comedian won this year's Foster's Edinburgh comedy award for her show A Bic for Her, which critiques everyday sexism. (Tickets sold here for you U.K. BUSTies.)

Christie is a big deal for U.K. comedy. She is the third female solo act to win this award, preceded by Jenny Eclair in 1995 and Laura Solon in 2005. Christie’s win culminates a big year for women in comedy; as one critic and award judge stated, “the fringe has found feminism.”

And she's damn funny. Christie trades in dry sarcasm and cheek; a bit I loved was her acknowledgement of how "a woman is sort of a version of a man. We have a head, feet and hands, but without any testicles, penis or laryngeal prominence... you may have seen us about."
