Real Mature – Sizzle Reel


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

2018 Canadian Comedy Award Nominee
for 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.
