Hi. I have just made my last Edinburgh show, Peak Trans, available to watch completely free on my new Youtube channel. If you’d like to watch it and/or subscribe, you can do so here: https://www.youtube.com/@jenivescomedian
It was an unexpectedly stressful experience doing this particular show so many different, complicated reasons - but in the end, it’s a show I’m very proud of and I’m glad I documented it on video. I hope you enjoy it. Below I’ve posted some information about the show, and links to 3 charities that you can donate to if you’d like to.
Full show from Edinburgh 2022, now free for you to watch on the internet. What a world we live in. Anyway, enjoy. If you enjoyed it, please consider donating to one of these wonderful charities:
Recorded on 25/08/22 at the Gilded Balloon Patter Hoose in Edinburgh Understandably, many trans people just want to live their lives in peace - not rocking the boat too much, and living a normal, happy life among their peers.
Jen Ives is not one of them. Having well established herself as an original voice on the comedy scene over the years, Jen Ives brings her controversial debut hour “PEAK TRANS” to the Gilded Balloon, which attempts (and succeeds) in pointing out the grotesque state of trans rights in the United Kingdom today.
Taking on hot button issues, such as biology, gender critical “feminism”, the LGB Alliance, pornography & of course - JK Rowling. The conversation is as vital as ever, as everyone and their nan seems to be discussing trans women’s validity these days. The only people who don’t seem to get a say, are the trans women themselves. Well, Jen Ives has paid for her room at the Gilded Balloon, Patter Hoose every day at 7pm, and she intends to use it.
'Jen Ives is a wonderful comedian. I've discovered her comedy in recent years, and I can't get enough of it.' (James Acaster).
