Description

One night only! An evening songs from Vancouver's very own internationally acclaimed, critical celebrated cabaret comedian Shirley Gnome.

After spending most of 2016 on tour, Shirley is returning home to play old favourites and brand new tracks back on her home turf. This will be her own only feature show in Vancouver this year.

Armed with her guitar and sharp wit, she will sing you incredibly inappropriate and completely accurate songs about sex and 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 all original music, standup comedy, wickedly inventive lyrics, and biting social commentary. Fans of Garfunkel and Oats and Tenacious D: get ready to be taken to the next level.

After a surprise win of Patrick Maliha’s The People’s Champ of Comedy in 2012, Gnome began working her charms in comedy clubs, music venues, and burlesque festivals across Canada. Gnome’s underground cult status got an international upgrade when she hit the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2013, receiving rave reviews. She continued this success by touring the Fringe Festival circuits of Australia, Canada and the US, gathering awards and glowing reviews wherever she went. She has released three full-length albums since her debut in 2009, which you can hear frequently on SiriusXM stations all over North America. Along with a 2017 tour of Australia, including a season at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, she will be releasing her fourth album next year - through a TBA record company that is a pretty big deal.
