Shirley Gnome's Taking It Up the Notch Oct. 3-7
Wed, Oct 3, 2018 at 7pm
From the heart of East Vancouver comes this internationally acclaimed, award-winning cabaret comedian. Armed with her guitar and sharp wit, this chanteuse provocateur will sing you shameless, obscenely honest songs about human nature that will have you in stitches. Provocative truths go down smooth with her incredible voice and gorgeous guitar stylings. It’s unique mix of music, standup comedy, wickedly clever lyrics, and biting social commentary.
“a joyful rebellion against rigid femininity, constrictive sexuality and what it means to be a ‘lady.’”
- She Does The City, Toronto
★★★★★ "simply brilliant... equipped with the voice of a goddess."
- Three Weeks, Edinburgh
Shirley Gnome has gained a cult following through her notoriously frank and unhinged performances with tours across Canada, the US, Australia and the UK. Featured on Dan Savage’s podcast The Savage Lovecast and signed to 604 Records, her latest album went to #1 on the iTunes comedy charts in Canada. If you like your music on the smutty side, with a dollop of empowerment and a dash of sequins - you don’t want to miss this. Fans of Garfunkel and Oats and Tenacious D: get ready to be taken to the next level.
