Two Queers Festival presents:

Dandy Lion is a show – nay, a gospel – analysing why queerness can be for the everyman.

Armed with great jokes and a particularly tasteful pair of shoes, comedian Sam Bowden will explore the basis of queer theory, why straight dudes need to give up their monopoly on sport, and how a fistfight with your father can make both of you better people. Don’t worry, there’ll still be plenty of dick jokes.


PLEASE NOTE: Live stream tickets are available online up to 60 minutes before show start. Make sure you get your tickets early! A Zoom link will be emailed to you before the show.
