The lovely Catherine Bohart, Guilty Feminist and star of BBC2’s The Mash Report will be coming to Komedia Brighton to perform her new show Lemon!

True to type, she will be using her comedic platform to smash the patriarchy while talking openly about her sexuality and relationships. 

The show follows on from her first one, fittingly called, Immaculate, where she spoke all about her experiences as an OCD riddled bisexual daughter of an Irish Catholic Deacon. A huge part of Catherine’s charm is how she tackles taboo topics, such as sexuality and mental health, whilst making people laugh. 

Her new show, Lemon, is a continuation of her first show. She called it Lemon for a few bizarre reasons. The main reason is that it’s an ‘ode’ to a woman wearing a lemon-coloured cardigan who got up and left her show, branding Catherine, “disgusting” when she started discussing her bisexuality. Catherine said, “As a society we over sexualize queer relationships which makes people feel uncomfortable when the topic is mentioned.”

Thankfully, I can’t see a repeat of this incident happening in Brighton! She also said that the woman obviously thought that she was going to see a show about a religious man’s daughter and laughed that “she was sold a lemon”. Another reason is that ‘lemon’ is a derogatory term for lesbians, used in Australia! 

This show will be all about love, sex and relationships from the perspective of a queer woman, who grew up in a town where these topics were very “hush-hush”. She described her show as, “dirty, filthy and funny”.
