one freak show

Lynnee Breedlove's One Freak Show coming to the UK at last!

How absolutely wonderful to go see a gender-bent and bending border-crossing whip-smart cutting-edge performer—who allows the audience to become children for a few moments. Terry Baum, SF Bay Times

Maybe most of this stuff will never make it to the mainstream. That's the mainstream's loss...Rachel Howard, SF Chronicle

Uninhibited humor lends tender insight and perspective to a gender politics debate that often takes place in a fiercely contentious atmosphere...Billy Tania, SF Bay Times

Lynn Breedlove returns to the UK as a no-op transsexual comic 15 years after tearing through as dyke lead yeller of punk dyke band Tribe8. Since then, fronting the band, writing the urban punk novel, Godspeed, performing with the all woman spoken word troupe Sister Spit, and hosting San Francisco’s queer cabarets, Breedlove has developed an onstage persona sharp as a new chainsaw blade humor and an intimate, improvisational fluidity that reaches everyone, turning the specific universal, and making high-minded political concepts fun at last.

The One Freak Show has been touring Europe and North America in six languages, in a form that continues to bring the activism, laughs, visibility, and education through the usual ridiculous, confusing, and shocking antics, this time including stuffed animals and eggbeaters. Don't worry, knives and body parts are still part of the show.

(Note: There are two solo shows: Tranny 101, and Confessions of a Poser. Confessions of a Poser will show at Bar Wotever in London. Everywhere else, including Club Wotever in London, will be Tranny 101.)
