Danielle Ward

Danielle Ward’s 2015 character comedy hour features songs with some strong feminist overtones. The show’s premise is that Dani Frankenstein, an aspiring K-pop (South Korean pop music) star is trying to set up a Skype interview with music executives, which she hopes will be her ticket to stardom. That set up adds a vaguely beneficial structure, but on the whole it’s kind of superfluous to the show’s overall content: Ward really shines in the musical elements of her show, proving herself an adept musician as well as a talented comic – in particular, the rousing anti-rape anthem ‘Please Don’t Stick Your Dick In Me’ will stick in your mind for the rest of the summer.

Voodoo Rooms, until 30 Aug.
