Harriet Kemsley

Unwrapped: a festival of comedy, cabaret and drag
Curated by Victoria Falconer

Multi award-winning comic Harriet Kemsley pulls her skirt out of her pants and shames slut shaming.

In a Cornell University study women rated fictional female peer, Joan, as emotionally unstable and less competent because she was sexually promiscuous. If Joan wasn’t fictional her name would be Harriet Kemsley, and in this deeply personal and hilarious show Harriet delves into her sexual history.

Star of Bobby and Harriet Get Married, 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, Comedy Central’s Roast Battle and Live at The Comedy Store.
