A HILARIOUS MUSICAL ROMP
with more than just an edge of raunchiness
Vancouver’s own “chanteuse-provocatrice,” the blonde, bawdy and brilliantly funny musician, Shirley Gnome, debuts at the Edmonton Fringe fresh off acclaimed gigs in Montreal and Winnipeg.
Armed only with a guitar this comedian takes the wine soaked truths shared privately between women and weaves them into a night of catchy and beautifully performed songs. With the “voice of a goddess” (Three weeks – Edinburgh Fringe) she delivers her observations on love, sex, romance and desire with an ephemeral beauty that contrast with the profanities laced into her clever lyrics.
Hilarious, endearing, thought provoking and honest to the point of shock, Gnome’s music has had audiences all over North America and the UK in hysterics, often in spite of their own modesty.
Anyone attending the Fringe Festival won’t have the full experience unless they go see ‘Shirley Gnome – Real Mature’.
