17 – 28 February – 9pm

Sketch Comedy Written by Jack Hardcastle | performed by Alicia McCormick & Kim Kerfoot | created by Jon Keevy | assistant director Joanna Evans Duration: 50mins

Dirty Words was born in the fast and loose crucible that is Alexander Upstairs’ own monthly experimental platform, Play Things. Immediately it became a cult sensation. Filthy, Explicit and incredibly funny… Dirty Words pulls back the covers on erotica, chat sex, dirty talk and naughty sexy grammar. In seven sketches  Alicia and Kim turn up the raunch, slipping in sexy tongue twisters and  burlesque shenanigans.
Warning: contains all the dirty words and also some almost nudity.Dirty Words

Alicia McCormick is the straight-laced alter ego of burlesque sensation Cookie Von Tastee. You can usually find Alicia onstage in plays like Dirty Words, An Absolute Turkey and Hitched. If she’s not there she’s either designing costumes in the wardrobe or baking up a storm.

Kim Kerfoot likes to tell people what to do, so he became a director which he’s been doing professionally for a number of years on shows like Statements Made After an Arrest under the Immorality Act (Fleur Du Cap for Best New Director), Closer, and Get Kraken! (Standard Bank Ovation Award at NAF 2013). But he’s also fond of turn-about so you can catch him in one of his rare onstage moments.

Jack Hardcastle is a fictional rake and writer made up so Jon Keevy won’t feel too embarrassed about writing filthy, explicit things. Jack doesn’t blush.

Tickets are R90, but pay online or advance at the bar (at least the day before the date of the performance) and get the special price of R80.
