With time being precious during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe we challenged this year’s acts to deliver a 50-word elevator pitch for their show. This time it’s the turn of…Leo Kearse
|I’ve been banned from hotels, Facebook, parties – and my venue at an Australian festival. This was due to accusations of transphobia, even though I wrote the material with a transgender woman I was dating. It’s a candid account of sex and censorship, ripping into political correctness, victim culture and ‘wokeness’.|
|What other show shouldn’t we miss?||Jerry Sadowitz: Comedian, Magician, Psychopath. His sleight of hand extends beyond his magic to his comedy, enabling him to make incredibly offensive material appear in front of the audience, then disappear without him getting arrested.
|Name of your show:||Leo Kearse: Transgressive|
|Venue:||Gilded Balloon Teviot, (Nightclub)
|Dates:||31 July – 26 Aug 2019|
