Death to hypocrisy, smash the state, fuck the patriarchy, damn the lies. J McLaughlin’s life-long passion for miniature golf and Aeolian harps inspires a whimsical journey of self-discovery, self-forgiveness, empowerment, and love.* J is a mean, funny, petulant, weird queer old maid. Written for this year’s festival, But Wait! There’s More! follows previous UNO Fest shows including This Time I Mean It (2017), and unpacks the jorrows** of anxiety, ecstasy, true love, dark thoughts, outer space, inner peace, death, desire, enlightenment, sex, smoking, drinking, fear, rage, paranoia, guilt, greed, pleasure, failure, egomania, megalomania, and other people.
**jorrows(pl): joy + sorrow

About the artist
J. McLaughlin has been entertaining, enthralling & occasionally terrorizing burlesque, stand-up, theatrical & music audiences for over 25 years. Working from a philosophy of desperate optimism, McLaughlin exploits her personal experiences, using analytical observation & twisted fantasies to create hilarious narratives that temporarily solve all the problems in the world.
