the thrust of it
Tales of a Sexual Tomboy is a raucous one-woman comedy about a horny tomboy, equipped with bad boundaries from her hippie upbringing, looking for empowerment in all the wrong places. Blending standup and story telling, Raven recounts some of the more disastrous and misguided moments from her treacherous path towards sexual liberation. She tries, and often fails, not to overwhelm her lovers by being too horny, too bold or too passionate. Expect 60 minutes of dark comedy with deep heart.
what audiences say
"Powerful, sexy, liberating, hilarious - Raven's performance articulates multiple conflicting emotions at once when it comes to sexuality, all while connecting with and engaging the audience."
- Roberto Andrei Aguilar
"Brutally funny, honest, and frankly sexual. Think Lena Dunham if she
was raised by hippies in Northern California."
- Chris Wolfe
"Joyful's forthright storytelling is simultaneously hilarious and poignant.
I love this show!"
“A performance like Joyful’s is a wake-up call, that questions the role models for women (and men) that have been ordained by our society.”
-Bolinas Hearsay News
“Raven is a talented and truthful performer...Using skillful impersonations and amazing
physical comedy...she connects the stories from her life right before our eyes and comes out
stronger on the other side.”
