Krishna Istha: Beast
About this event
"(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!?"
