Tell us about your show.

Is That How Clowns Have Sex? A One-Woman, Queer Clown Sex-Ed Show follows Ms. Bea Haven as she attempts to teach her first sex-ed class. With a combination of answering audience questions, structured teaching moments and humour, she tackles issues that are often left out of standard sex-ed. It is everything you might think a clown teaching sex-ed could be.

Describe your show in three words.

Clown sex ed.

Why should someone come see your show?

It is the sex-ed you never got in high school. The show was built by a queer sex educator, but is delivered by a clown, so really we are trying to demystify sex-ed, and talking about sex through the use of clown and comedy. Are you going to laugh? Almost definitely. Are you going to learn something? Maybe. Are you going to want to learn more? We sure hope so. Do you get a ribbon for showing up? Hells yes!

If your show was a superhero which superhero would it be, and why?

A combination of Buffy Summers and Tina Belcher.

If you could see only one show at the Vancouver Fringe Festival this year, besides your own, what show would that be?

Awkward Hug by Cory Thibert.
