Siân Docksey got stranded in her parents basement over Covid and stopped herself from going mad by taking pole dancing classes. Now her accountant says she needs to start using pole in comedy or these won’t count as a business expense. The result is a whirlwind combo of stand-up, pole and surrealist sexy stick shenanigans for you, the audience! (Especially if “you” are “the HMRC.”)
But can pole dancing actually be funny? Is it too sexy? Is it too weird? No one complains if a comedian show off they can play guitar, paint a picture or use PowerPoint… so why not pole? Siân invites you on a silly, cerebral and probably quite sweaty journey through the anxiety about women’s bodies in public and why hanging off a stick shouldn’t be taken so seriously.
Siân is a British-Belgian comedian most recently seen on BBC 3. She began pole dancing as a stripper and has since developed her signature style of "knocking things over."
"With a great energy and a surreal vibe, Docksey is very funny - on the face of it her set is full of quirky humour and off-beat anecdotes but underneath she addresses important issues of gender and sexual politics" - The F-Word
