Details: Comedian J Murphy has been on some VERY strange dates. From everyday lies about age and marital status, to money laundering, crypto scams and an outrageous attempt to “blow her pants off with steak,” J’s experienced it all. A true, tongue-in-cheek TED talk on surviving (and even thriving in) the chaotic modern dating world. With a unique blend of wit and vulnerability, this is a comedic exploration of navigating the dating scene as a pansexual. If you’ve ever been on a bad date, this show will ‘strike a chord’ (The Toronto Star). True tales of love, laughter and pansexual dating challenges.
