To Catch A Dick – An ode to sexual empowerment

London Hughes is the comedian we all need during lockdown.

British Comedian London Hughes is taking the US by storm. Her debut Netflix special ‘To Catch A Dick’ is the feel-good, self-empowering stand-up show you need to watch. Having dominated the British comedy scene and a successful tour at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Hughes is now ready to spread her wings under Kevin Hart’s guidance and production company Hartbeat Productions. Hughes excludes female sexual confidence with a personal mission statement to normalise ‘sitting on faces’. As a black British comedian, Hughes is the self-dubbed ‘female Richard Pryor’, since her comedy premise focuses on her sexual escapades and generational art of catching dick.

Hughes explores dating, the realities of being a female comic and the gender imbalances she faces, joking that she decided to become a comedian because it’s a job where she doesn’t have to look good. Hughes is authentically herself regardless of the audience she is performing in front of and despite COVID-19 restrictions of a socially distanced and masked audience in the States, Hughes’ comedic delivery is at times funnier than the punchline itself and the energy from the audience can be felt.

London Hughes was the comedian of 2020, with a film based on her life in the pipelines and bright career ahead of her. A truly talented performer, reminding all of us to never shrink ourselves to fit in or be loved. Hughes is redefining female comedy one dick at a time. 

‘To Catch A Dick’ is available to stream on Netflix now.
