It’s hard to make murder funny yet Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark are bringing the laughs to the Enmore for their tour based on their comedy podcast, My Favorite Murder.
Since its inception in 2016, the podcast has achieved mass fame despite its prima facie dark stimulus. Conversational and comedic, Kilgariff and Hardstark recount their favourite murders in both recent and ancient history while maintaining the appropriate sensitivity for the victims.
By day, Kilgariff is a veteran standup comic, television writer and actress while Hardstark is best known for her show, Drinks with Alie and Georgia, on the Cooking Channel. But it is their podcast that has earned them a legion of fans who have dubbed themselves ‘murderinos’. The podcast has particularly resonated with women, in part, due to its emphasis on vigilance and self-defence over being polite. With a tagline like “stay sexy, don’t get murdered” – this is not a show to be missed.
