Not the usual testosterone-filled comedy

United Kingdom
West Australian Premiere

Turns out testosterone filled comedy isn’t what you thought!

Welcome to Beast, a stand-up show by the transgender, trans-national, performance artist turned comedian, Krishna Istha.

Directed by Zoe Coombs Marr (Best Show Melbourne Comedy Festival 2016, Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee 2016), Beast throws a refreshingly daft non-sense bomb at the binary everything.

Super smart politics meets some really silly props as Krishna dares themselves to some (pretty bent) straight talk at the stand-up mic: babysitting the woke way, is this McDonald’s or Grindr?, and don’t get them started on the toilets. Plus, the shocking truth behind the question: “What’s in the bum bag!?”

Beast is commissioned by the City of Melbourne through Arts House, was developed through CultureLAB and is supported by public funding from the National Lottery through Arts Council England.

As part of Summer Nights at FRINGE WORLD 2020.
