Vagina Museum Feminist Comedy Night
Fri 19 May 2017, 19:00 – 22:00 BST
On Friday 19 May the Vagina Museum presents a night of stand-up about vaginas, the people who have them, the things we put in and push out of them, cultural vaginas, arty vaginas, sciencey vaginas, really WTF animal vaginas, and much more.
Headlining the show at Unit 5 Gallery, east London, is Manchester comedian and former regular contributor to XFM radio’s breakfast show, Hayley Ellis - described by viewsfromthegods.co.uk as a “refreshing dissenting voice in the current female trend of twee, patchwork niceties.”
Support comes from comedians Rosie Jones and Micky Overman; UCL materials scientist/performer Anna Ploszajski with a materials nerd's hot take on sex toy manufacturing; Vagina Museum founder Florence Schechter, who loves vaginas so much that she’s currently making a video about her top 10 varieties from the animal kingdom; historian Sadie Harrison; and geneticists/performers Charlotte Mykura and Maia Elliott.
Held with generous sponsorship from Lovehoney, the UK’s most popular adult toy and lingerie store, all proceeds from ticket sales will contribute toward development of the Vagina Museum.
Tickets for the Vagina Museum Feminist Comedy Night are £6 + booking fee, available through eventbrite.
