The other day I headed to Birmingham’s Glee Club to watch Doing It! live. I like Hannah Witton’s YouTube channel. I have said in the past on Twitter that Hannah Witton’s videos about sex should be shown in schools because they are educational and bloody funny, which is perfect for the hormonal 14-16 year olds. Therefore, it was a no brainer when I saw the tickets go online that I would have to go along to the show that was accompanying her new book. What was even better was when I found out that one of my other favourite youtubers Lucy Moon was joining Hannah on tour.
The show is set around the six stages of getting down to doing it. This is because as Hannah explains herself she talks about sex but not how to get down to ‘doing it’. Hannah took us through the realms of doing it which included education (a competition which mimicked drunkenness as two girls were blindfolded, spun around, and tasked with putting a condom on a banana, a great way in portraying how dangerous drunk sex can be). Live matchmaking where the audience filled out sheets about who they were looking for and added it into a box and Lucy picked them out and invited them onstage. Also a live version of drunk advice (where if you don’t watch Hannah Witton, it is her filming herself drunk dishing out advice). The best part of the show I felt was the chatting up scene, which was really clever as Hannah talked about dating as being like a job interview as you are finding out if you are compatible with each other – like you would a job. Hannah also spoke about losing her viginity and read out a poem she wrote about it at the time. That was quite sweet.
The show was an hour long with a twenty minute break in-between. To be honest we could have done without the break (it was a school night and I had a twenty minute train ride and 30 minute drive ahead of me!). I was a bit older than the age range for the show (14 to 23) and I am, ahem, 26 but for £14 it was worth it. I think it was a smart move Hannah inviting Lucy along as a double act – I couldn’t have imagined even though Hannah is very talented it working in the format it did on her own or not with a fellow youtuber. If you like Hannah Witton or very funny tales about sex then you would have enjoyed the show.
