Elaine Miller - Viva your Vulva - at the Edinburgh Fringe!
39

PearlClutch · 25/07/2022 17:07

For anyone looking for a hilarious, informative and warming experience at the Fringe, I have high expectations of Elaine's show. I mean, I haven't seen it, but I am sure it will be brilliant!

Elaine certainly doesn't shy away from the obvious puns or word-play. I've seen her 'in conversation' a couple of times and she's genuinely funny and informative. Isn't she MN's own @GussieGrips ?

I’m a big fan of Elaine. I have seen her perform and speak at events. Absolutely brilliant and very funny and also very safe too. Go and enjoy.

I was just thinking of her today while doing pelvic floor exercises in the queue at Tesco, she’s brilliant.

I'm half way through watching this:



which I'm really enjoying. You really do go from laughing to crying to laughing again. She's great.

I love the sound of her voice!

Super intelligent, empathetic and interesting.

Yep, whenever I think of her I certainly do pelvic floors.

She is, but she said she lost her name in the hacking a few years ago.

I saw this show last year when it was a condo friendly walking tour, it was great.

she says she is “sex factual”, so am going back with some “nearly peaked” colleagues, we have a weekend af the fringe and I am packing it with as much femnist shows as I can!

Thing on Twitter to try and get her on Woman's Hour because it is Listeners' week and she is hilarious.

I hadn't heard of her before but I've just watched that speech and she is brilliant. She should be on television. The information about transgenderism and dementia was fascinating and something I hadn't considered before. What a shame someone so funny and knowledgeable and so genuinely helpful with women's health issues would probably be seen as too controversial to platform by the mainstream media.

She was on TV, I remember her getting Eamonn Holmes doing pelvic floor exercises on This Morning. Even that was hilarious. I'd love to see her if she goes on tour.

I remember that! There was a disabled dog too!

I’ve got tickets for the second Saturday. How will we recognise each other?**

my friend said she wanted to do a trans show for every feminist show, and suggests a trans comedian called Jen Ives.

Jen disrupted the launch of the LGBA.

Jen’s show is on at the same time as Elaine in the same venue. Maybe that is a stunt? Feminists and trans allies in a bar together. Glad I’ve got tickets for both shows, gives my chance of seeing a bonus drama.

well. I am not sure what this is all about but I am also not sure if it is comedy.

I’ve got to sit through an hour of this to get my fried to come to Elain’s. It’s not a fair exchange.

I went last night and it was brilliant! So funny! And, she really goes for it and nails her colours to the mast, she is an absolute hero.
