Grace Campbell: A Show About Me(n)

Grace Campbell is a one-woman manifesto for body, sex and mental health positivity. A sharp-drawling contradiction who clearly adores the men she’s mocking, revels in the delighted discomfort of her audiences, and who occasionally seems to catch herself wondering how on earth she came to create the very complex being she clearly is.

Campbell is the schoolmate your mother definitely didn't approve of

Campbell’s apparently autobiographical set is akin to spending the night down the pub (or more likely, Soho House) with that garrulous friend from North London whose life successes you are delighted - if a little perplexed – by. She’s the schoolmate who taught you to smoke weed; locked the both of you in the stationery cupboard at school to teach you how to kiss; can always be relied upon to have a spare condom. She’s the mate you just gaze at... wondering how someone so fragile can have so much chutzpah. She’s the mate you want to be and yet are completely terrified of. She’s the mate of whom your mother definitely didn’t approve… no matter how famous her father was.

Campbell’s Fringe Show About Me(n) is an utterly filthy trawl through some of her sexual shenanigans, with little detail – or audience embarrassment – spared. But what raises the show above sensationalist prurience is Campbell’s mix of goofy charm and firebrand refusal to give a toss about the boundaries of over-sharing. It is an hilarious hour which zips by on a tsunami of wide-eyed, open-mouthed, deliciously appalled audience reactions; and which definitely leaves a very specific taste behind.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.

The Blurb

Grace, 'one of the funniest women in Britain' (Times), makes her eagerly awaited Fringe return following 2019's sell-out run, with a new show about her two lifelong passions; men and herself. In a show promising to be fiery and explicit, Grace is going to let go of her need for male validation, with a show that is bound to make all men obsessed with her. Not that she cares... As seen on BBC, Channel 4 and Dave. 'Articulate, witty and very funny' ***** (Edinburgh Reporter). 'A bullish, complicated, firecracker' **** (Metro). **** (ThreeWeeks).
