***** (Scotsman, 2017). Let's chat about your race relations issue. Who better with than a Samoan/Welsh comedian from New Zealand? Focusing on Britain's unique history with the golliwog, it's all about addressing the mixed-race elephant in the room... when the elephant is staring at a racially-triggering doll. Where do they come from? What do they mean? Can you own one? No, but really, can you? Following a critically acclaimed 2017 run at The Stand, James Nokise returns to Edinburgh after touring the world and is keen to chat.
