Shit I’m In Love With You Again (Crowning Monkey)

By | Published on Sunday 27 August 2017

Rachelle Ellie has been on a magical whirlwind romantic adventure, ever since losing her virginity in her twenties and having to experience the wonders of blue-balled, pony-tailed poet lovers. Now married to a doctor (with kids that sometimes she’d frankly like to orphan), Ellie certainly hasn’t lost the ability to poke fun at her love life, bringing buckets of cheeky playfulness and a mischievous twinkle in her eye. With plenty of garish costume changes and live-accompanied tracks, including ‘F*ck First’ and ‘I’m Breaking Up With Jesus’, Canadian comedian Ellie is a master of tongue-in-cheek glitz. But don’t be fooled, because behind the bawdy lyrics is a brilliant performer full of character and charm.
