Elaine Miller - Viva your Vulva - at the Edinburgh Fringe!
43

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!

The toilets were single sex at the start of the festival, then about 4 days later , the women’s toilets had “ non- gender” sign & the men’s became “ cubicles & urinals”
As you can imagine a lot of women who use the venue were not impressed, so many made their feelings known and now the women sign is back up & the men’s is the same.

I went to see Jen Ives show. Jen was funnier than I expected

Good to see there was some value for money for your ticket.

two women talking about Elaine’s saying she is being harassed.

It's deplorable. Is the harassment around biological facts and the perceptions of that? Harassment is deplorable and there still feels to be an additional sting where it's for something that's longer acceptance than gravity and such.

I went to see Jen Ives show. Jen was funnier than I expected but the thing is written around Graham linehan. It was ok but Jen was mostly venting rather than pulling jokes together. I’m not sure that Jen would say any of that in front of GL. The audience was polite but Jen didn’t manage to get them to gel, maybe they didn’t know who GL is? I was surprised though Jen is a full time comedian so should have been able to pull a crowd together

I heard at the venue (in toilets that are now not mixed sex, how did that happen?) two women talking about Elaine’s saying she is being harassed. I suppose that is what happens if you speak up now.

What a great show this is, highly recommend to anyone who is going to be in Edinburgh for the Fringe this year. Honest and accessible information about female bodies, what happens when you pee, when you have sex and when you reach menopause. Very informative and also hilarious. The world needs more Elaine Millers.

I went to the show. Loved it! She's so witty but it was also really informative and I thought she handled The Issue very deftly.

Go go go!

Elaine is brilliant, she got a standing ovation the night we were there.
Not sure if there are many “ feminist “ shows on at the Fringe this year.

I saw EM last night talking to a manager. There was a sticker on a Jen Ives poster. the two audiences are probably opposites.

What is weird is that there are no posters or flyers for EM anywhere. I want an origami fanny flyer!

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.

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.

I remember that! There was a disabled dog too!

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