Silvi Santoso, known in Canada as the Asian Roseanne, stumbled onto the comedy stage after being dared by a friend to try stand up comedy. From those humble beginnings, she has become a standout presence worldwide, wowing crowds across Asia, Canada, and the United States. Shocking real-life anecdotes combined with a black and blue comedy style results in a bruising performance, leaving audiences laughing, reeling and ready for round 2. International live comedy credits include Detroit Women Comedy Festival, Bangkok International Comedy Competition, We The Men (New York and Toronto), The Funniest Person in the World Competition (Laugh Factory Los Angeles), Rape is Real (National Canadian Tour). Not bad for a woman just hoping to get her 8x10 hung up in a comedy club!
