Nova Scotia native, now Australian based performer Gillian English is coming back to Canada to perform her show “Giant and Angry”!
Nominated for Best Comedy at Fringe World 2018, and currently the only show at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival with a 5 star from national newspaper The Age, “Giant and Angry” is THE show of our modern tumultuous times. Discussing self defence, her relationship with her father, and the violent lives of women, Gillian English is back with another hit feminist solo show for our post #MeToo movement world.
Gillian has always been almost six feet tall since she was 10 years old. She’s been called sasquatch, bigfoot and a giant. Gillian has always been angry. She’s been told she’s aggressive, combative and a bitter shrew. She’s giant and angry for a reason!
As the creeps and predators around us are falling like sex pest dominoes, the women of the world are waking up to their power – they are many, they are giant and they are angry. Really, really angry.

‘English appears at the zenith of her art. She takes the big guns on and leaves us laughing… I love whatever this lady challenges us to rethink.
