I Carried a Watermelon: Dirty Dancing and Me

From award-winning comedian, writer and actor Katy Brand, comes a warm, witty, honest, and accessible account of her life-long obsession with one of the nation’s best loved films, Dirty Dancing.

Part memoir, part homage to the monster hit, I Carried a Watermelon exlores how Dirty Dancing has influenced Brand’s own attitudes to sex, love, romance, rights and responsibilities.

Alongside her own memories, Brand considers Dirty Dancing’s legacy as a piece of filmmaking with a feminst agenda that many miss on first viewing; from its ‘Gold Standard’ depiction of abortion according to leading pro-choice campaigners, to its fresh and powerful take on the classic ‘coming of age’ story told from a naïve but idealistic 17-year-old girl’s point of view.

One of the most celebrated and viewed films ever made is about to have the time of its life.

Katy Brand is an award-winning writer, comedian and actor. After starting to write and perform comedy as a student at Oxford University, she became a regular on the UK live sketch comedy scene. In 2005 she took her debut Edinburgh show Celebrities are Gods to the Fringe which was picked up for Channel 4 (Slap). This later became her award-winning ITV sketch show, Katy Brand’s Big Ass Show, which she devised, wrote and starred in. It ran for three series and later became a nationwide live tour.
