London’s No.1 gay sketch comedy group the Sex Shells are here to flame on your parade with satirical rewrites of your favourite anthems from Disney, pop princesses, and the musicals, original music, wayward choreography, and surreal character sketches.
A non-stop tirade of jaded pop divas, singing cows and Northern aunties. Featuring original music and four fabulous talents. Expect Chicago on chems, Beauty & The Beast on Grindr, Whitney Houston at the self-service checkout and a cameo from talking cigarettes of course! In a nation brimming with important gay plays, Sex Shells offers 60 minutes of anarchic silliness capped off with an unavoidable and completely unnecessary Abba medley.
Cleverly critiquing gay culture and millennial life using a mixture of camp surrealism, musical theatre and satire, the Sex Shells boys continuously compete with each other – whether they’re bitching cats, Lana del Rey on a comedown, or gay lab rats – there’s always something to prove!

The Sex Shells emerged on the underground Dalston scene in 2014 before The Glory spotted them and offered them a monthly slot. Jonny Woo took the Shells to Latitude where they stole the cabaret tent with “Yummy Mummy Nightmare at the Supermarket”. They went to Jersey to develop their show XL (and while there performed at Channel Islands Pride) before storming Brighton Fringe! Their first major show Sex Shells XL set the critics on fire and played to sold-out houses at the Glory in February and March 2017. Since then, they’ve wowed the crowds at the Mighty Hoopla, Brighton Pride’s Bearstival, and the National Theatre’s Riverside Stage, and enjoyed residencies at The Curtain and The Shacklewell Arms in addition to performing their monthly sell-out new-writing shows at The Glory. They launch a new major show at The Glory in May 2018, and are available for bookings now.
