About this event
Witty. Irreverent. Political.
Welcome to YAAAS KWEEN, the sell-out FRINGE WORLD sketch comedy show that boldly delights in all things feminist, queer, black, and brown.
Starring a cast from all walks of life, this sketch comedy romp showcases the Australian experience outside "the mainstream". With fun socio-political situations, pop culture gags, and kooky characters, this is a night to remember.
This show is 100% Australian-made, cruelty-free, certified halal, female-first, sustainably managed, and ethically sourced. Just say YAAAS!
