Real Mature – Sizzle Reel


Hey Pretty Man
Shirley Gnome
Outrageous, Hilarious & Endearingly Inappropriate
Award Winning Comedian & Performer

2019 Canadian Comedy Award Nominee - Best Variety Act 2018 Canadian Comedy Award Nominee - Best Comedy Album & Best Variety Act
From the heart of the West coast of Canada comes this internationally acclaimed, award-winning cabaret comedian.

This smutty songstress, armed with her guitar and sharp wit, will sing you shameless, obscenely honest songs about sex and human nature that will have you in stitches.

Provocative truths go down smooth with her incredible voice and gorgeous guitar stylings. It’s unique mix of acoustic music, standup comedy, wickedly inventive lyrics, and biting social commentary.

If you like your music on the smutty side, with a dollop of empowerment and a dash of sequins – you don’t want to miss this.

It’s award winning, cleverly-carnal comedy that is NOT for the faint of heart.

"She's dark, sexy, over-the-top and she'll sing songs that will make sailors blush: meet cabaret comedienne extraordinaire Shirley Gnome. How can one woman be so honestly obscene and so entertaining?" -Sunday Mail, Australia

Her one-woman cabaret shows have wowed audiences and critics alike, with sell out shows across Canada, the US, Australia, New Zealand and the UK. You may have heard her on Dan Savage's podcast The Savage Lovecast and on SiriusXM. She is signed with Canada's largest independent music label (604 Records). Her latest album Taking It Up The Notch debuted at #1 on the iTunes comedy charts in Canada when it debuted in late 2017. Her party anthem The Glitter Song went viral, stacking up over half a million views. She closed out the Melbourne International Comedy Festival all-woman showcase UpFront in 2017. She is currently writing for her next release, due out in 2019.
