Cameron Esposito: Person of Consequence

until 20:00 @ Soho Theatre

Called the ‘future of comedy’ by legendary late night host Jay Leno, comedian, actor, writer, producer and podcaster Cameron Esposito brings her brand new tour ‘Person of Consequence’ to Soho Theatre for her first time headlining in the UK.

Named ‘a comic to watch’ by the New York Times, Variety, LA Weekly, Time Out LA, LA Magazine, Jezebel, Cosmopolitan and the Guardian, Cameron hosts her own stand-up show, Put Your Hands Together, every Tuesday night at the famed Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in Los Angeles.

Cameron recently debuted her newest hour of comedy, Rape Jokes, in front of a small crowd in Los Angeles, described as ‘powerful’, ‘daring and hilarious’ and hailed as ‘the first great stand-up set of the #metoo era.’ (The Daily Beast).

Cameron has appeared on NBC, CBS, Comedy Central, TBS, IFC, E!, Cartoon Network and HBO Canada, in TV shows such as Maron, Drunk History, Bajillion Dollar Propertie$ and Comedy Bang Bang and in films featured at the Sundance and SXSW Film Festivals.

Her album Same Sex Symbol debuted at #1 on the iTunes comedy charts and was named a Best of 2014 comedy album by The AV Club, Consequence of Sound, Laugh Button and Paste Magazine.

Cameron is co-creator and co-star of Take My Wife, a television series that has received rave reviews in The New York Times, Vanity Fair, Vulture and Indiewire and is available now on iTunes. She also hosts her own podcast Queery, in which she interviews the brightest luminaries in the LGBTQ+ family exploring individual stories of identity, personality and the shifting cultural matrix around gender, sexuality and civil rights.

I’d only heard Cameron Esposito on podcasts and once I’d booked for this I purposely didn’t watch any recorded stuff because more often than not it doesn’t really convey what you’re going to get from a live performance. The first ten minutes or so felt like she was kind of finding her footing with a UK audience (a Monday night one at that) and I get the sense that a US audience might have been a bit more easily impressed. Once she settled in the material really began to shine through and I really enjoyed the show in the end.
