Queen of Ireland and National F*cking Treasure Panti Bliss is Ireland’s foremost “gender discombobulist” and “accidental activist.”
Panti has written and performed four critically acclaimed, hit theatre shows, all produced by THISISPOPBABY: In These Shoes, All Dolled Up, and A Woman in Progress. In 2013, All Dolled Up: Restitched, a reimagining of her first three hit shows had a sold out run at the Abbey Theatre and toured Australia. She recently finished touring the world with her stand up show High Heels In Low Places, which played to stellar reviews and packed houses across Ireland, the UK, Europe, Australia, and the US.
In October 2014 she published her memoir Woman In The Making which was a bestseller in Ireland.
Panti became an iconic figure for equality in Ireland, and in 2015 she played a major role in the successful referendum campaign for Marriage Equality in Ireland.
In October 2015 a critically acclaimed documentary about Rory and Panti, The Queen Of Ireland, broke Irish box office records.
In 2016 Panti joined the circus and became the ringleader of THISISPOPBABY’s RIOT.
