Soho Rising Festival presents:

Su Mi: Banana Beard

Sat 10 Feb 60 minutes
Think it’s a Stand up solo show? Think again. This immersive comedy invites you all on a surreal misadventure of absurdist sketch, untamed thrash metal guitar solos and imaginary costumed personas.

Expect high energy , wild storytelling and whimsical uplifting nonsense left right and centre. A wild, offbeat and exciting exploration of Stand-up, Musical , Character and Clown comedy, this one woman show celebrates the human experience growing up as an immigrant child of South-East Asian descent , born and bred in the treacherous depths of East London.
