EuroCamp presents… The Best & The Wurst of Eurovision

  • Ms Sharon's head bursts out of an EU flag. She is clasping her face with her hands and has long red nails that match her hair. This image is to promote The Best of the Best & Wurst of the Wurst, Hackney Showroom's jam packed day of drag and cabaret talent on 9 May in Liverpool.

Vagina Museum | Hysterical #2

The Vagina Museum presents a night of stand-up comedy all about vaginas, vulvas, muffs, love buttons and vertical smiles, headlined by Sarah Bennetto.

Providing comedic delights are comedians Sophie Duker, who as co-host of Manic Pixie Dream Girls was “smashing the heteronormative patriarchy one show at a time”; Cerys Bradley who hopes you love the history  of vagitarianism quite as much as they do; Aimee Eckert who unites together science and burlesque like a sexy Large Hadron Collider; Bisha K Ali, who promises she doesn’t bite, unless you’re an eclair, in which case it’s really your own fault; Hannah Brady, who hopes you’ll hear her because she doesn’t hear much and Dorian Wainwright, a straight white guy just to fulfil our diversity quota, plus more to be announced.

Headlining the show is Sarah Bennetto – expect stand-up and character curios by the Melbourne-born, London-based comedian. Sarah has appeared on BBC Radio 4, Sarah Bennetto’s Mix-Tape, Storytellers’ Club, Global Pillage, all the great comedy podcast panel shows, and Glastonbury backstage radio.

“Superb. Devastating. Edges towards perfection.”  ThreeWeeks

Starting life as a series of gigs, talks and workshops, the Vagina Museum’s ultimate goal is a permanent collection showcasing the science, history, society and culture of vaginas, combined with a community outreach programme. And a really great gift shop, of course. With vagina cake.

All profits from ticket sales will contribute toward development of the Vagina Museum.
