News: FRIGID New York to present Extended Run of Claire Ayoub’s "The GynoKid," Monthly from June 9-December 8
After an award-winning run at the 2023 FRIGID Fringe Festival (Best Solo Comedy, Top Grossing at The Kraine Theater, EstroGenius Award - you can read our review here) and performances raising $6000 for her hometown theater, Claire Ayoub’s solo show The GynoKid is back with FRIGID New York as a monthly show at The Kraine Theater (85 E 4th St, New York, NY 10003).
As the child of small-town gynecologists, comedy writer Claire Ayoub (Empire Waist, Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls) experienced an untraditional and often mortifying adolescence destined to end in therapy—and comedy. (And you thought YOUR parents were up in everyone’s business.) Join Ayoub for a delightfully cringeworthy walk down memory lane and learn what being a GynoKid is all about.

In addition to her delightfully cringeworthy tale about growing up as the child of small-town gynecologists, Claire will be moderating a Laugh + Learn Q&A after each show where healthcare experts will share their expertise about specific health topics with audiences each month. This new addition to the show is in honor of Ayoub's parents, who dedicated their careers to educating patients about their bodies. June's topic will be gender-affirming healthcare, followed by endometriosis in July.
Performances will take place on Friday, June 9 at 7pm, Friday, July 14 at 7pm, Friday, August 11 at 7pm, Friday, September 8 at 7pm, Friday, October 13 at 7pm, Friday, November 10 at 7pm, and Friday, December 8 at 7pm. Performances will also be available to livestream from home.
Tickets ($10-25 in-person, $0-10 virtual) are available for advance purchase at www.frigid.nyc.
Produced by Lizzy Bryce, Crystal Collins, and Jack Hobbs, the show will run approximately 60 minutes, followed by a 45-minute Q&A.
