Sharon Mahoney is coming to Laughs of Launnie with her five-star sell-out comedy show that will grab you by the short and curlies.

THUNDER(noun): A loud rumbling noise heardafter a lightning flash, due to the expansion of rapidly heated air. 

CUNT(noun): Slang for a woman's genitals. 

THUNDERCUNT(noun): Empowered female: "Awmate, she's a raging thunder-cunt."  

If you like your stand-up comedy to pack a powerful punch, then Mahoney’s no-hold barred comedy will not disappoint.
And if the c-word triggers/offends and you and you’re not a fan of stand-up comedy; come along to the show anyway, and letMahoney change your mind!
This latest show from performing veteran Sharon Mahoney, directed and co-written by Eric Amber features hilarious stories of Mahoney’s family matriarchs, her tomboy childhood, Star Wars,Disney, propaganda, men, and of course the thunderous ‘C’ word.
Nothing is off limits in this show that delivers wonderfully perverse laughs and a powerful message of what feminism should really be about. This is a comedy show of how one woman found her superpower… and embraced the Thundercunt within.

“Brilliant, very funny, charming and endearing.” 5 stars - Bridget Bantick, Associate Director Melbourne International Comedy Festival
