Anna Piper Scott: Such An Inspiration
There's only three stories they ever tell about trans women - punchline, villain or victim. Are you ready for a fourth? Anna Piper Scott is a stand up comedian, trans woman and the voice of a generation. After garnering a wave of acclaim for her second debut show, Queer & Present Danger, she's back with a powerful and controversial hour of stand up.
'Such An Inspiration' is show about the power of jokes - how they can limit you, how they can liberate you, how they can hurt you and how they can heal you. It's a show about court jesters, chaos demons and Dave Chappelle. And it's a show about how annoying it is to transition and still be required to have an opinion on sport.
★★★★1/2 "Such An Inspiration is a hard-hitting show [...] she puts the ‘trans’ in transgressive" Chortle.
