Riot Showgrrrls Club – Penzance

May 24 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

‘The mixture of comedy, songs and some hard-hitting facts made for an electric evening, and then the space for chats and tunes after was just what I needed, thank you so much for this transformative event – viva la vulva!’ – Audience Member at The Riot Showgrrrls Club, 2022

The Riot Showgrrrls Club is a cabaret show and participatory craftivism event using humour, songs and storytelling to entertain and encourage conversation about how much better than porn actual sex is.

Imagine a club where you are greeted with sparkling wine, a suggestive cake and the feminist hand-stamp of your choosing…

In this club you are part of a show that combines Patriarchy Bingo, PowerPoint and madrigals about the vulva in a fast-paced, feel-good (mostly) feminist fling about great sex in an age of terrible porn.

The Riot Showgrrrls Club is run by your hosts, glamorous comediennes and singers who have the truth-telling powers of Cassandra, the political punch of Gloria Steinem and the high quality daftness of Melissa McCarthy (in her great films like the Heat and Spy, not those rubbish ones her husband directs).

How does such a night end? Well, after the show you stay on in the club to listen to the women-only DJ set, make your own club membership card with our Radical Craftivist, have some more drinks and get your conversation on – ‘cos in our revolution we’ll find sisterhood and there will be dancing!

Originally commissioned for the Gilded Balloon, Edinburgh in 2008, when lad mags were in their heyday, cabaret meant tit tassels and female stripping and porn was being mainstreamed right into our cultural veins, Scary Little Girls bravely took a pro-sex anti-porn show to Edinburgh.
