Lifetime Achievement Awards come but once in a lifetime, which means Mitzi has just one shot to deliver an acceptance speech that will land her in Hollywood’s Halls of Fame.
Good thing she’s prepared an all-singing, all-dancing, 60-minute-long spectacle that definitely won’t go wrong…
Come meet Mitzi, laugh at her jokes, and drink from her font of slightly off-colour wisdom in this WIP from the “endlessly creative and subversive” (FringeBiscuit) Posey Mehta.
Expect practical advice on breaking into the industry, behind-the scenes insights into life on stage, and uncomfortably explicit descriptions of her ex-husband Larry’s genetalia. Mitzi has a pearl of wisdom for everyone. Except kids. She hates kids, and this show (and Mitzi as a person) is not child-friendly.
With “humour effusing from almost every expression” (Ed Fringe Review), the “incomparable” (Broadway World) Posey Mehta is an “endlessly creative and subversive” (Fringe Biscuit) newcomer to the alternative comedy scene.
She debuted at the Edinburgh Fringe this year with ‘I Am Not A Gorilla’, a one-woman character comedy about Gloria, who is not a gorilla, but is trapped in the zoo. The show saw significant positive critical reception, with multiple ☆☆☆☆☆ reviews earning it 22nd place on British Comedy Guide's Best Reviewed Comedy Shows of Edinburgh Fringe 2022.
