From the sweatshops of Wuhan to the stages of Berlin, Moni Zhang is bringing you a show that's equal parts comedic and cathartic. Moni's raw and unapologetic performance delves into her impoverished childhood, dysfunctional family and stomach-churning toilet habits. Brace yourselves for a dark, dirty and downright hilarious comedy show that will take you on a roller-coaster ride of emotions. Edinburgh Fringe 2022 sell-out show. Winner Berlin New Stand-up Award 2019. 'An absolutely funny show' **** (ScottishField.co.uk). 'Beautiful storytelling but overtly sexual' (Scotsman).
