Su Mi: Banana Beard - Work in Progress

Su Mi


Pleasance London


(60 mins)


From £10.00

Think it’s a stand-up solo show? Think again.

This immersive comedy invites you all on a surreal misadventure of absurdist sketch, untamed thrash metal guitar solos and imaginary costumed personas. Expect high energy, wild storytelling and whimsical uplifting nonsense left right and centre.

A wild, offbeat and exciting exploration of stand-up, musical ,character and clown comedy, this one woman show celebrates the human experience growing up as an immigrant child of South-East Asian descent, born and bred in the treacherous depths of East London.

Su Mi is a British Malaysian alternative stand-up comedienne and musician sharing her cultivating tales of her own cultural identity. Social commentary on intersectionality, queerness, racism and mental health as a woman of colour growing up in the Western world.

Breaking stereotypical barriers of what a typical ‘asian woman’ should be and representing a voice that does exist in audiences, especially in the alternative comedy world.

SOLD out run at the Camden Fringe and SOLD OUT shows at the VAULT Festival 2023.
