Nottingham Comedy Festival: Rob Kemp: Agenda

Rob Kemp: Agenda
Part of the Nottingham Comedy Festival



I imagine that like me, after eight months spent indoors in your pajamas, you are ready to put on your glad rags and head out to see a show about straight male crossdressers.
This is an important subject to me, as I am one of them and we are still mostly a punchline.

I saw a Mario-themed stag-do yesterday. There were multiple Marios, Luigis, and Yoshis, whilst the stag was dressed as Princess Peach.
And I wonder why that was.

What is meant to be inherently funny about a man dressed like a lady?
It’s a status thing, isn’t it?

I know that sounds really heavy, but I have done my best to make it as light, fun, and accessible as possible, so don’t worry, ok?

Rob Kemp is an Edinburgh Fringe Best Newcomer nominated, multiple award-winning comedian, usually found doing silly multimedia stuff, but on this occasion would like to tell you a personal story about shame, identity, gender expectations, and being true to yourself.

Covid-19 Important: 

Due to the Coronavirus we have had to change the way we do things at Canalhouse so whilst restrictions are still in place we are limiting the number of audience members so groups can socially distance. We are selling tickets per table.  

Government Guidelines: (as of 14th October)

You must not meet people you don't live with in any indoor setting - whether at home or in a public place - unless they are part of your support or childcare bubble. You must not socialise in a group of more than six outside, including in a garden or other spaces like beaches or parks, and you must follow social distancing rules.

Pubs, bars and restaurants close at 22:00 BST. They are restricted to table service only. Face coverings must be worn by customers when they are not eating or drinking.

If you are watching the performance, you should:

  • only attend with members of your household. 
  • socially distance from people you do not live with (or who are not in your support bubble)
