GRACE FOOL & JENNIFER SCHMENNIFER

Grace Fool

These two fine upstanding dames couldn't be more different...

- Jenni talks a lot and Grace doesn't.
- Grace is a clown and Jenni is unintentionally a clown.
- Critics have described Jenni as 'quick witted', and Grace as 'Pennywise the clown'.

Jennifer Schmennifer

They're a strange combination but somehow they work together perfectly. Like cheese and pineapple. Or salt and caramel. Or gay men and deep, deep levels of insecurity.This is not a cabaret you will want to miss.

โ† about

Photography by James Klug

We are on the hunt for acts to be part of our upcoming lineups, so if you're a performer of comedy and a gay* idiot then get in touch below! Here are the rules:

  • Your act must not take itself seriously - we are exclusively idiotic.

  • All slots are five minutes.

  • Be professional, respectful and cool.

This is not just a show for drag kings and queens (though both are likely to feature across our lineups) - the more unique your act is the better, as long as it's funny**. (Funny as in extreme belly guffaws, not funny as in 'nervous chuckles whilst audience arses clench because the room feels tense and uncomfortable'.)The gig is paid, but not much because we're a tiny operation.Hot tip - coming to see the show before you apply might help you understand the vibe/meet us so we know who you are when you submit ;)

In your message, please include ALL of the following:

  1. Who you are

  2. What you do

  3. What your idea for our night is

  4. Links to your socials AND videos of your previous work

*The definition of 'gay' is completely up to you, in our eyes there is no set meaning. However, the show is primarily made by and for queer people.**As well as comedy acts, we are also looking for high octane acts that don't take themselves too seriously, for example burlesque performers with elements of silliness.
