About this event

"Krishna Istha brought the house down" Daily Review
"(they) told stories of their lives that brought the crowd to fits of laughter or audible tears; a joke about dildos in bumbags, memorably, to both" Guardian Australia

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!?"

Presented by:
The Blue Room Theatre Summer Nights, the Artist and The Milstead Company

Krishna Istha is a performer, live artist and theatre maker. Their performance work looks at gender politics and queer culture using subversive text, cabaret and comedy. In 2015, Krishna was named as "One to Watch" on the Rainbow List 2015, the annual celebration of the 100 most influential LGBT+ people in the UK.
