A split hour from two stand-ups who happen to be brown women. Did your parents advertise in a Bangladeshi newspaper to find you a husband? Ever thought about cheating on your rescue dog? Find neither of these things relatable? This show is for you! Join Alex Bertulis-Fernandes (So You Think You’re Funny? and 2Northdown New Act semi-finalist) and Sharlin Jahan (Funny Women Finalist, Bath New Act runner-up) for a show that has nothing to do with White Chicks. Leicester Comedy Festival Pick of the Day. As seen at Soho Theatre/in your dreams.
