Leave your awkward auntie/uncle chats at home as The Brownie Club return to Soho Theatre for another night of comedy, cabaret, drag, music and more, performed by an exciting bunch of South Asian artists (and brown friends) - all handpicked by The Brownie Club.

After a sold out night in 2022, The Brownie Club returns to Soho Theatre. Hosted by our Labs alumni & The Brownie Club founder Jessica Lucia Andrade. Expect cheeky humour as she hosts an evening of pure joy and takes us on a journey of her cultural identity.

Mahatma Khandi 

“as sweet and spicy as the curry sauce you demand at McDonalds”

Coined by her inner circle of voices in her head as the all knowing rich auntie that pays her queer Niblings in love compliments and money, she thinks she’s Haute couture but she’s more like Haute mess.

Unearthed from the depths of the islands of Philippines and Sri Lanka, she serves Fresh off the boat realness, raised in the fashion districts and food courts Of Italy she learned the importance eating and looking good … while eating … but also creating fusion between cultures.

Pat Elle

With acts hotter and spicier than a vindaloo, more colourful and Vibrant than The Chandni Chowk Market and with more sparkle than a wedding sari. Pat Elle takes inspiration from risqué Bollywood and Arabic movements, her style oozes Bollywood glamour with a touch of British cheek. Just like a good Bombay Mix, Pat’s the perfect combination of sweet and spicy.
