The Langham’s 2017-2018 Guest Artist Series kicks off in rowdy fashion with musician/comedian Shirley Gnome in the Langham theatre in Kaslo, Saturday, September 30 at 8 pm. Gnome is a multi-award winning cabaret musician known for her explicit lyrics, hilarious insights and gorgeous voice.

From the west coast of Canada comes this saucy songstress singing you outrageously taboo and obscenely honest songs that will have you in stitches. Internationally acclaimed, she has wowed audiences and critics alike with sell out shows across Canada, the US, Australia and the UK. You may have heard her on Dan Savage’s podcast The Savage Lovecast and on Sirius XM. She has recently signed with Canada’s largest independent music label (604 Records) and will be releasing her 4th album this year.

“One of the hardest things a comic can do is take a simple sex joke and make it clever and relevant. Despite the level of dirtiness that Shirley sings about she is extremely smart and clever, providing the audience with amazing twists and turns that carry a profound sense of hilarity.”  – Onstage Ottawa

“Gnome is gifted with a gorgeous voice, as well as serious performing and songwriting chops. You’ll laugh at things you never thought could be funny.” – VUE Weekly/EdmontonFringe.ca

It’s an award winning, cleverly-carnal cabaret comedy that is NOT for the faint of heart! Advanced tickets $18 at Sunnyside Naturals and Willow Home Boutique. Doors open at 7:30 pm. Tickets, $20 at the door. www.thelangham.ca
