THURS SEPT 19th – 8:30pm @ MONTREAL IMPROV (3697 boul St-Laurent)

The Sketch Republic presents: Empowerment

🐋⚡💙 Ladyfest 2019 – 5th Anniversary 💙⚡🐋 is upon us and it’s time for our annual removal of the oppressive excrement that has been killin’ our vibe for way, way too long. It’s weighing us down!

This is a show for any of you who are TIRED OF THIS SHIT. Fighting for equal rights for all is (ridiculously) a full time job, but we’re ready to get wrist-deep into the BS and forcibly remove the misogynist waste. 💩

Join Youtube sensation 🍑 Doctor Butt-flush – Enema Queen 🍑 as we flush out the turds of oppression and let the empowerment stream in!
