Eleanor Conway is utterly unashamed to talk about sex in the most frank and honest way, and the women especially in the audience were absolutely with her. She’s vibrant and energetic on stage, and her chat about sex and sexual acts is both crude and so utterly unashamed that it is both refreshing and quietly liberating.

Ms Conway is already on stage when the audience starts to filter in, and she starts up some banter with the audience and supports the front of house team in finding everyone seats. Much of the show is delivered at a pace with almost no room for breathing – either for Ms Conway or the audience – though it does stall a little during the section about her longest relationship, the telling of which seemed a little too obviously contrived and a bit at odds with the rest of the show.

Nevertheless, this show is a fun and funny romp through Ms Conway’s sexual history, complete with illustrative gestures and errant expressive noises. Full-frontal comedy with no holds barred. Vigorously entertaining. Click Here For Review

Eleanor Conway's vagina has a name (Jenny), and this is important to know. Eleanor Conway has a history, and this is important to know. Eleanor Conway is very funny, which is essential to know. This is all explained in the introduction of Eleanor Conway: You May Know Me From Tinder. Conway outlines her journey through hook-ups and relationships, as well as a short stint of being paid for sex work. Her take on sex and desire is inclusive, non-critical, and in nearly all instances the gags revolve around her relationship with Jenny – her longest life partner.

Conway can command a crowd whilst maintaining the flexible authority to deal with hecklers and comments from the front row – these being far more liquid than they were solid. When delivering stand-up you know your audience has had some level of lubrication before the show begins and Conway is an excellent MC whilst the audience takes their seats. Conway is excellent at signposting – by this, I mean that she outlined to her audience exactly what the routine would include without spoiling the big gags later on. This allowed the audience to feel comfortable in her (very) capable hands.

As such the show delivers some great moments whilst doing total justice to Conway's own stories from the front line of keeping orgasms regular.

A remarkable show that mixes great humour with resonating personal experience.

Even before the show begins, Eleanor Conway takes total charge of the situation. She begins a full-capacity show by chaperoning audience members to their seats, scanning the horizons of Maggie’s Chambers for the coveted spare chair. Such a packed room already promises something memorable. Once everyone is sitting down – and she has roundly mocked everyone who had to be turned away – she begins. Free comedy can be hit and miss, but Conway is hit after hit after hit.

A singular and engaging performance about modern relations

Eleanor Conway greets her capacity crowd as they enter, methodically directing them to fill the various nooks and crannies of this spacious venue. As she segues into a warm-up act for her own show, it's clear that this comic is very eager to please others, even if one of the main themes running throughout this hour is a very determined pursuit of her own pleasure.
