Whore’s Eye View
Kaytlin Bailey of Old Pros (USA)
Whore’s Eye View is a mad dash through 10,000 years of history from a sex worker’s perspective. Equal parts stand up comedy, history lecture, and personal storytelling, Kaytlin Bailey masterfully unpacks the age-old stigma surrounding the oldest profession.
“The solo show mixes erudition with earthiness. It flows from unfiltered divulgence to impassioned thesis, all leavened by a parade of well-honed zingers.” San Francisco Chronicle.
