Award-winning stand up comedian Eleanor Conway returns to Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2023 this August with award nominated show Talk Dirty To Me.
With over 250k followers on social media and over 100+ million views online for her off-the-cuff street interview series #OversharingWithStrangers, Eleanor’s latest hour of stand up is a sex-positive, high-energy banger that explores the ‘Pleasure Gap’.
In a world where women in heterosexual relationships still do the bulk of housework and childcare yet orgasm the least during partnered sex – Conway asks are we really that far along in the fight for equality? Who really benefits from marriage and babies? And how can straight women finally negotiate equal pleasure both in and out the bedroom?
Conway has sold out several worldwide tours with her stand up shows Walk of Shame (which took her on a 10 country, 100 date, sold out tour) and You May Recognise Me From Tinder. Her 2021 show Vaxxed and Waxxed sold out a 41 show run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival as well as making its New York debut.
Previous credits include The Guardian, BBC Radio 4 Woman’s Hour, Talk Radio, The Times Radio, Stylist, BBC Radio 5 Live’s Nihal Show and BBC Radio 4 Extra. Eleanor’s online videos have gained 100s of millions of views for her off-the-cuff on-the-street interviews and her relatable takes on dating, sex and living her best child-free life. She has been banned from Tinder for life.
Eleanor’s also an advocate for drug and alcohol rehabilitation. In 2018 she hosted Kaleidoscope’s 50th celebration at the House of Lords as well as writing about her experiences dating in sobriety for The Guardian and was a guest on BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour.
