❤  From the west coast of Canada comes Shirley Gnome! This multi-award winning cabaret musician, whose all-original, uncensored music about human nature is hilarious, candid, subversive, smart, empowering, taboo and not for the faint of heart. Her cleverly carnal lyrics go down smooth with her inappropriately gorgeous vocals, and her charm will disarm you through even the most provocative topics. Her outlandish cover songs transform top 40 hits into dark social satire.

After a surprise win of Patrick Maliha’s The People’s Champ of Comedy in 2012, Gnome began working her charms in comedy clubs, music venues, and burlesque festivals across Canada. Gnome’s underground cult status got an international upgrade when she hit the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2013, receiving rave reviews. She continued this success by touring internationally, wowing audiences and critics alike with sell out shows across Canada, the US, Australia, and New Zealand. This included closing out the Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s all-woman showcase UpFront in 2017.

In the same year her party anthem The Glitter Song went viral, stacking up over half a million views. She signed with 604 Records the same year, and her 4th album Taking It Up The Notch debuted at #1 on the iTunes comedy charts in Canada when it debuted. She has released four full-length albums since her debut in 2009, which you can hear frequently on SiriusXM stations all over North America. You may have also heard her on Dan Savage's chart topping podcast The Savage Lovecast.

Reviews: "She’s dark, sexy, over-the-top and she’ll sing songs that will make sailors blush: meet cabaret comedian extraordinaire Shirley Gnome. How can one woman be so honestly obscene and so entertaining?" -Sunday Mail, Australia

Bawdy Storytelling


Storytelling is about building a connection. So is sex.

For over 12 years, Bawdy has featured true stories of sex, kink, body image, gender and more to build community and bring people together. We do regular live storytelling events in two cities, but that's just one way to enjoy Bawdy. Our podcast and YouTube channel are great ways to get your Bawdy fix, too.

Our live events feature an eclectic mix of authors, poets, comedians and actors – along with real people just like you - sharing their adventures in ten minutes or less, with no notes. This is honest-to-badness story time with true sexcapades and poignant, transformational tales at each and every show. Storytellers submit their material online and are chosen for their panache and sense of (mis)adventure. Dixie curates submitted stories, then works with experienced and first-time storytellers to create a one-of-a-kind evening for each and every Bawdy. Her coaching superpowers tease out surprisingly powerful stories of sex, kink or gender. Then at showtime, Dixie coaches the audience, too – creating an emotionally supportive, unintimidating, and sex-positive atmosphere that’s unique, engaging and fun. Add connecting games (like the ever-popular Bang-O) and you have a show that’ll be your new favorite social event EVER.

Come see what LA Weekly calls "The Moth for pervs" and meet new, open-minded people. Before you know it, you'll be wanting to share your stories, too.


Dixie is America's Sexual Folklorist. She is passionate about storytelling’s power to connect strangers, to teach us through story, and to foster compassion and empathy.. In addition to being the founder, curator, and host of the long-running Bawdy Storytelling series, Dixie is also an accomplished storytelling coach and offers workshops for anyone who wants to communicate better and inspire others, no matter what the subject matter.
