About Feminine Gentlemen
Liz met Jill when Liz signed up to volunteer for the 2005 Chicago Sketch comedy Festival, of which Jill is the Executive Director. Jill then signed on to direct Liz’s sketch comedy group, OneTwoThree. She’s pretty much been telling Liz what to do ever since. Jill: “Do a show with me.” Liz: “Okay.”
Jill met Liz early this year at a Taco Bell. She has no idea if she can act, but didn’t have anything to do on Tuesdays in March.
Comedically trained by the best in Chicago (The Second City, iO, Annoyance) and performing with some of Chicago’s most well-known comedy groups (The Cupid Players and Off Off Broadzway) these two dudes with boobs will melt your face off with funny.
“My favorite act of the evening, Feminine Gentlemen… a gutsy duo” – Chicago Reader
“Valentine and McArthur were most adept when playing with the crowd, as they did a couple times during a teasing improvised scene. I liked them best when they came across as dueling, Vaudevillian tricksters in bowler hats” – Jason A. Heidemann, Time Out Chicago
