Joyful, triumphant, hilarious, enlightening, inspiring…do not miss ThunderC*nt.

Sharon Mahoney has a super power for opening eyes and capturing hearts and minds. In ThunderC*nt, she torches the myths and propaganda made to weaken and destroy girls and women.

She emblazes the alternate tales and icons that embolden and empower them.

With her analytical mind and ill comedic skill, she casts her own Lasso of Truth around the whole audience to compel laughter and action in unison.

A testament to Sharon Mahoney’s oratory brilliance is her ability to be inclusive and ruthless almost in the one breath.

Her take on feminism extends to solidarity for men who also lose in a system that devalues emotional connection and sensitivity.

But make no mistake: there is no soft touch for those who would sexually objectify, subjugate and assault women. Permission to dispatch them most brutally is granted.

There’s a touch of Joan Rivers in Sharon Mahoney – she is razor sharp, brash and profane.

But it’s the long line of strong and able women in her own family she credits most for her survival and success.

Their courage in fighting for rights, resilience through economic hardship, and tuition in sexual freedom and choice, are written into her DNA.

Generations of feminist frontierswomen make ThunderC*nt the juggernaut she is today.

The audience loved this show. There was uncontrollable laughter, moments of enlightenment, a long and loud standing ovation.

Mortals, there is hope: ThunderC*nt has arrived, just in the nick of time!
