Laugh Your Cuntry Ass Off
2755 Prince Edward
Laugh Your Sexy Ass Off goes CUNTRY on Sunday November 16th as Kitty Nights Burlesque Sundays welcome the incredible country music comedienne SHIRLEY GNOME to our stage!
Armed with only a guitar and a sassmouth, this chanteuse provocatrice belts out original tunes about the embarrassing, profound, and hilarious adventures that happen when bodies collide. Her music, while smothered in explicit language and racy humor, is sung with the voice of “an angel dry-humping a cloud.” This divine yet profane combination has found her a devoted audience with her shameless renderings of sex and romance. Sometimes tongue-in-cheek, othertimes insightful and honest, Shirley weaves a live show that has people in hysterics – often in spite of themselves.
She won over audiences all over Vancouver to become Patrick Maliha's The People Champ of Comedy Competition 2012 Grand Prize Winner, taking home $20,000. She continued this success with critically acclaimed shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and the St. Ambroise Montreal Fringe Festival. She has graced the stages of several burlesque festivals with her baudy stylings, earning herself a place as a beloved member of the international burlesque community. Her latest success came in the form of a nomination this year for a Canadian Comedy Award for Best Variety Act.
With two albums under her belt, and a live album to be recorded later this year, Shirley continues to delight, shock, and amuse audiences wherever she can.
Also featuring Celebrity Impersonator BONNIE KILROE! Plus comedy burlesque sensations April O'Peel and Burgundy Brixx with antics by The Purrrfessor, a post-show dance party and more!
