Does daddy Jesus’s naked body on the cross make you wet? This show will. Seriously, there’s water. So, put on your waterproof panties and get ready to unpack everything from losing your virginity in the most holy way, to abortion, to a bowling experience that leads to eternal damnation, and much more. Through cringey personal recounts, stand-up adjacent clowny performance, and audience participation, Kelly’s poignant and hilariously subversive show (Best Newcomer nominee 2023 ISH Edinburgh Comedy Awards) exposes the impossible standards of the Catholic Church. We will laugh. We will sin. Will we make it to hell together?

★★★★ ”A bold, full-on performance. Everyone who watches this show is surely going to hell, but if she’s there it’ll be a blast.” – Chortle.

★★★★ “Brilliantly performed, genuinely shocking, and mesmerizing to watch.” -The Wee Review.
