Excuse Me, You’re Sitting On My Penis Again (Lou Sanders)

Lou Sanders

During her quest to get into Eton College For Boys, Lou Sander’s was told many things, perhaps the most profound being “your age and gender are against you”. This single sentence perfectly sets the tone for her show. Sanders enthusiasm is abundant and her energy alone is entertaining to watch, as she presents a good show with moments of greatness. It’s often silly and some what juvenile, but also highlights the hypocrisy of one of England’s oldest college, and while it isn’t the most polished piece – Sanders had to refer to her notes several times when I saw it – this doesn’t take anything away from her performance. Plus, it culminates in a spectacle that I would defy any audience not to smile at.
