Daphna Baram: Cracking Up
After dealing with immigration, politics and Jewish mothers, Daphna Baram’s 2019 Fringe offering takes on mass and time (AKA weight and age) as the human-rights lawyer-journalist-comedian rages against the dying of her light.
‘Supremely talented… as biting as it is funny’ (Daily Info)
‘Masterful… Her fantastic way with words and bone-dry humour have the audience in fits of laughter… Superbly refreshing’ (BunburyMagazine)
‘Fresh and enlightening, her warmth elevating the gentle, conversational nature of her delivery’ (List)
Wonderful, hilarious and important, too’ (Broadway Baby)
Isma Almas: About A Buoy – Adventures in Adoption
Isma is British multi-culturalism at its best. In ‘About a Buoy – Adventures in Adoption’, her preconception-shattering, down to earth and engaging style, explores transracial adoption, gender, religion, sexuality, race, one homophobic Muslim mother and Freddie Mercury.
As seen on BBC Asian Network Comedy & BBC2’s The Big Asian Stand Up.
