Description

As the discourse on trans people becomes more toxic in the UK – comedian, trans woman and nuisance Jen Ives is here to sort it all out, hun. Is JK Rowling the devil? Can a man love a trans woman and still truly be straight? And how long can Jen get away with taking maternity leave from work? Finalist: Funny Women, Laughing Horse, Leicester Mercury. 'Great company' (Chortle.co.uk). 'Jen Ives is a wonderful comedian. I've discovered her comedy in recent years, and I can't get enough of it.' (James Acaster).

A few good chuckles for a debut show. I have kept thinking of her jokes about her 'experiences' with Graham Linehan, all week. I love to support her all the way. I think her ending was cut, though, which I was sad about, but it was a good show.

I was looking forward to this as a supporter of LGBTQI + people no matter what they do as they need that extra support as they are the most oppressed folks in the country. The problem and I feel really awful saying this as an ally is...this is just camp..catty, caustic and a bit odd bit not in a good way. I am so so sorry but I didn't find your show funny..soz babez.

Jen Ives is charmingly lovely which makes a lot of her punchlines (which are anything but!) all the more funny!

Definitely worth seeing!
