18 - Delightfully Rude - Elaine Orion - Ritz Studio
She’s been called “the female Doug Stanhope” by a heckler in a blackout and “brave” for performing in Trump-friendly bars. Elaine’s stand-up comedy is most enjoyed by those accepting the end of the world.
Honestly, there is precious little information on this one.
I think she’s a visiting artist from out of town.
I found a fairly dormant website for a comedian named Elaine Orion but I’m not 100 percent sure it’s hers.
Really, it was the press pitch in the materials I was sent by the Fringe that amused me enough to put her on the list:
“Elaine would call the show ‘unapologetically feminist’ but she wants people to actually show up.”
Sometimes that’s all I need.
(oh, and if, like me, you were wondering, "who's Doug Stanhope?" He has a website.)
Here's some handy links to full Top 10, Top 11-20 and Returning Favorites lists.
