"Gender Euphoria is kind of a comedy snapshot of transitioning; it’s a solo show about the process I went through. But it’s also a place where I get to joke about the really messy areas of identity and labels—you know, the short and official answers about trans experiences are woefully incomplete. We have to present ourselves as fully-formed beings who are sure of everything, because otherwise people don’t believe us. But we need room to fuck up, too. My comedic style is kind of precariously conversational; I have my setlist but I’m never really sure what I’m going to say on the stage."
Gender Euphoria lasts about an hour, but has been performed down to 45 minutes or as long as 90.
