Them Fatale

Newsflash, non-binary is the new black.

James Hilary Penwarden lost their gender, found some new pronouns, and now they’re milking their hot new identity for all it’s worth.

Coming out from the shadows of the weird kids’ corner, they’re dragging their trendy gender identity crisis to the stand-up stage. And it’s an award-winning show, baby.

Penwarden is here to raise the flag for a new brand of stand-up comedy – a brand that is down with the patriarchy and here for the theytriarchy.

From sexuality and gender to the TV series Lost (we’re all still angry about the way that show ended in 2009, right?), Penwarden spans the full gamut of queer experience in 55 minutes.

Learn about how bisexual ex-Catholics really fill their god-shaped holes.

Bring your gays, theys, and baes. This an open callout for an orgiastic celebration of queer humour. But don’t worry – introverts will be safe at this orgy.

“Unique, bawdy, wonderfully humane and consistently captivating. Them Fatale is one heck of a show.” – Jonathan Kingston-Smith, Theatreview
