Asexuality Stand-Up Comedy show!

Recommended Posts

TheAceOfShards

Hello all! You may remember me from last year when I started out my work in progress show "Eliott Simpson: (a)sexy and I know it", which I toured to Glasgow, Norwich, York, Newcastle and Edinburgh. It was a great year and the support from the ace community was phenomenal!

After all those previews and short test runs at festivals, i'm pleased to say that I think i'm ready to start touring the finished full-hour version of the show across the UK this year! The show is essentially an hour of stand-up comedy about being asexual, facing exclusion and discrimination from society and within the LGBT+ community, deconstructions of gender and sexuality, trying to survive in a sex obsessed world, oh, and puns, lots and lots of puns....and props....and cake. It's a pretty packed show, but one that people have seemed to really enjoy so far. It was reviewed by ArtsYork.com as a show that "succeeds in finding the right balance between being informative and hilarious". I think this show has the potential to be a great visibility and educational tool, to teach people about asexuality in a fun and accessible way that'll hopefully resonate with audiences worldwide.

At the moment, the finished full version of the show is going to debut at the Glasgow International Comedy Festival on the 14th March in The Griffin: http://www.glasgowcomedyfestival.com/shows/2606?fbclid=IwAR3QlyMdi0veO00bHjLEtxAkqvHvyMihBQu1QuOkMASQ2KZtNW-_7qEHb90
 

It is also booked for a short run at this year's Brighton Fringe, on May 8th, 9th, and 10th in The Walrus: https://www.brightonfringe.org/whats-on/eliott-simpson-asexy-and-i-know-it-146709/

I hope to perform at more festivals throughout the year such as the Great Yorkshire Fringe and Edinburgh Fringe. If any of you live in the UK and would be interested in seeing the show, i'd really appreciate any support or help with publicising it, and of course would love to see you there!

I follow you on Facebook, and I really like what you are doing. If you're coming to London, I will definitely be there.

I'm thinking that, since he performed shows during October-December during 2019, he might announce more shows later on this year, too (through his Twitter or Facebook page, since he's more active on those social media channels).
