Kate Smurthwaite: Clit Stirrer

Bunbury Rating – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

For those perhaps previously unfamiliar with Fringe favourite Kate Smurthwaite, she introduces herself to us via her reputation as “provocative”. No stranger to the label, this show celebrates her ability to shock and outrage. ‘Clit Stirrer’ is a diverse collection of brutal, challenging, but important stories, punctuated with Smurthwaite’s unique and ingenious humour. Presenting a show no more predictable than the woman herself, she wears the world’s horrors on her sleeve with such originality and wit, that there is simply no arguing with it – she is brilliant.

Even the most dark and uncomfortable realities she addresses are presented in such an honest and accessible way, that no matter how dark it gets, you can’t help but leave with a sense of optimism. Smurthwaite exudes a passion and self-assuredness onstage which is both infectious and empowering.

Between storytelling, sketches, one-liners and reflections over her career, Smurthwaite emerges, politically and comedically, as a force to be reckoned with. Her refreshingly outspoken comedy will undoubtedly leave you hanging on her every word.

‘Clit Stirrer’ is at The Banshee Labyrinth @ 7:30 until August 26th.
