It is introduced as a theatrical presentation of the manifestation of patriarchy in contemporary Western society but in keeping with its zealous use of foul language, Lady Skits can best be described as a bitch session.

The four young University of Manitoba women of the Muff-Stache Collective fly the flag of feminism in this needlessly raunchy 50 minutes of sketch comedy but to no real effect. There are laughs but it’s hard to see how scenes featuring women peeing, watching porn and rapping about being “a girl in this motherf---ing world” advances the cause. It only proves that some young women can be as sophomoric and vulgar as the guys.

The lament is that educated, talented women given an opportunity to do whatever they want onstage could not make a more insightful statement about their sex in 2012.

— Kevin Prokosh

 

From the Fringe program:

It began one naked, drunken hot tub night.

After titful comparison, fretful debate on hair removal and voicing our vaginas, we aimed to change the world one ha-ha-ha at a time.

Our collective creation (and bad boyfriends, F papers and insidious one-night stands) led to the obscurity of this sketchy comedy Lady Skits.

In a dick joke-dominated world, let's get some vagina up in heeere!
