Presented by Helen Duff
SOLD OUT Edinburgh and Perth Fringe 2016.
An “absolutely shameless, boldly ridiculous, embarrassingly funny journey” (★★★★Australia Times) through the complexities of (not) cumming. Dressed as a sperm, Fringe First nominated Duff dives head first into her quest for an orgasm. Expect to be aroused, amused and a little frightened by the lengths she’ll go to achieve her first Big’O.
About the artist
Helen trained at LAMDA, L’Ecole Philippe Gaulier and the University of Cambridge. Her first solo show, Vanity Bites Back, won a Fringe First nomination at the 2014 Edinburgh Fringe and was subsequently selected for Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Adelaide Fringe Festival in Australia. A clown cookery show about anorexia, it won a Pick of the Festival Award at VAULT Festival, London 2015 before touring to regional theatres across the UK, finishing up with a [fivestar] rated run at the Tobacco Factory in October. Helen’s follow up, first comedy hour, Come With Me sold out its critically acclaimed run at the Pleasance, Edinburgh Fringe 2016.

“Duff is ridiculous, honest and utterly inspiring – I can’t be the only one who thinks Duff would be the best sex ed teacher anyone could ask for.”
★★★★ London Theatre
“A menage a trios of the Vagina Monologues meets Sex and the City v.s South Park…poignant, witty and fun”
“Helen Duff proves that sex sells so don’t be shy, get it while you can, this is one night you won’t regret!”
★★★★ Ed Fest Mag
