About this event

“This festive satirical show delivers big-hitting performances and cunning lyrics”

The Guardian

Deck your balls with boughs of jolly...

Fem-fresh and flaming, your three favourite barbiturate babes are back to lead you through the track-’n’-traceless wasteland of a Covid Yule in an explosion of original music, song parodies, sketches, and sexy chair dances. 

Sex Shells are London’s hottest queer musical-sketch-comedy threesome.  Regular sell-outs at the Soho Theatre, they’ve sleighed the critics at multiple Edinburgh Fringes and now they’re here to ruin Christmas.   Expect plums, pearl necklaces, and the public-school striptease – erections, rejections, fashion assassination – God, food allergies, global warming, chemsex, trans rights, Maggie Smith! Ahem. There will be tiers before bedtime.   Oh – and straight white men? We got your backs, babez.

Oi, Dirty Carol – we’re gunna sing ya. Friggy pudding.
