(Lilly Slaptsilli)

Willing to take a bold risk Drag Entertainer, Lilly Slaptsilli, has taken almost 22 years to grow a pair as she makes her stand-up debut in a camp, comical romp entitled I'm Gagging. This production comes to Rhumbelow Theatre Durban from October to 20, 2019.

With her observational humour and lively storytelling skills, she presents an unrelenting, ass-flapping evening of humour. Sitting somewhere between comedy theatre, and performance art. Someone like Lilly could rise to popularity as a kitschy-comedy-queen/earnest-webcam model comedy routine that tackles topics like bumming bergies, Uber drivers and hungry bottoms. The Word on the curb tells us Slaptsilli holds no punches as she gets loose lipped about dark rooms, insomnia and 1st time flyers.

I’m Gagging has performances on October 18 and 19 at 20h00 and on October 20 at 14h00. The venue opens 90 minutes before show for picnic dinner.

Tickets R150 (no discounts for this show). PG – Ages 18 and over.

Take along food picnic baskets. Braais will be available and food is available to purchase at the venue. There is limited secure parking and booking is essential. A cash bar is available (no alcohol may be brought on to the premises). Rhumbelow Durban is situated at 42 Cunningham Road off Bartle Road in Umbilo.

Booking is through Computicket or contact Roland on 082 499 8636, email (also for group booking discounts of 20 or more) or visit
