What's Wrong with J McLaughlin: Episode 3
Intrepid Presents Series
Kirsten Van Ritzen told me that "the first 100 shows" don't count.
"What's Wrong with J McLaughlin: Episode 3 '100' is McLaughlin's last chance saloon de refuse attempt to dance with their demons (greed anger resentment jealousy boredom anxiety death depression & oh! so much MORE). Third time's the charm, right?
Uno Festival said: "Jay McLaughlin has the ability to make people laugh out loud. Okay, sometimes she gets a little creepy. But sometimes she blurts out some image so shocking & gorgeous it rewires your brain."

About the artist/company
J McLaughlin is a shy, queer anarcho-bourgeois musician and performer from Victoria, BC. They have been entertaining, enthralling & occasionally terrorizing burlesque, drag, stand-up, theatrical & music audiences for over 20 years. Working from deep within an incandescent cathedral of optimistic rage, McLaughlin’s solo performances use intimate narrative, dark humour, & wild ribaldry to deconstruct the cognitive dissonance of living within a cisheteronormative imperialist white supremacist capitalist patriarchy..
