Harriet Kemsley: Slutty Joan
Multi award-winning comic Harriet Kemsley pulls her skirt out of her pants and shames slut shaming.
In a Cornell University study women rated fictional female peer, Joan, as emotionally unstable and less competent because she was sexually promiscuous. If Joan wasn’t fictional her name would be Harriet Kemsley and in this deeply personal show Harriet delves into her sexual history.
Star of Bobby and Harriet Get Married, Comedy Central’s Roast Battle and Katherine Ryan Tour support.
