YWCA's International Women's Day Comedy Show - Sydney
This year's comedian for Sydney is Lily Starr, and 'An hour with Lily Starr', combines the best of Lily's shows including 'Big Lez', and her new show 'Epilesby.'
Lily will give you KD Lang riding a unicorn into a Women’s AFL game realness. She discusses love and life, providing insight into the intricate relationship between a grown woman and YouTube compilations of lesbian love stories.
Lily aims to answer the Big questions:
Why doesn’t Kmart put all the flannel, denim and leather in the one section for lesbian convenience? When will I get over Dana’s death? (- and no I cannot discuss Poussey yet!) Am I attracted to Whoopi Goldberg or do I want to be Whoopi Goldberg?
