This is from back in December but I thought it was interesting - a discussion of the media paranoia about so-called "Alpha Females". It rang a bell with me because Chortle (one of the biggest comedy websites around) reviewed me last year when I was in the Hackney Empire final and said "she was funny ... [but] ... I sympathised with the underdog rather than Kate’s alpha female". I wonder how much criticism a confident male performer like Chris Rock or Al Murray gets for being an "Alpha Male"? Answers on a miniature postcard please.
