Moni grew up in a sweatshop in Wuhan. No wonder she developed a dark sense of humor, after surviving extreme poverty and her dysfunctional family.

This show is she making sense of her traumatic childhood, her mental illnesses, and her relationship with her dead father.

If you have a dark sense of humor, this is definitely a show for you! Moni will make you laugh at the most uncomfortable things in life, as she shows you her unique perspective of seeing light in the darkest tunnel in life.

🏆 Winner of Berlin New Standup Award 2019

👍 "Moni is a very intelligent, funny, and great performer." - Shazia Mirza (British Standup Comedian & The Guardian Columnist)

👍 "Beautiful storytelling but overly sexual" - The Scotsman

👍 "Moni Zhang’s storytelling abilities are profound. " - Entertainment Now

Host:

🎤 Tyrone Stallone 🇺🇸 (INS @tyronestallone)

The son of a failed comedian, Tyrone has been around comedy his whole life. He never wanted to pursue stand up because it reminded him of his father. But when he was offered a $500 stand up class for free, he couldn’t say no.

After a few months, Tyrone quit doing comedy to travel the world. During a mushroom trip in Thailand, God told Tyrone to start doing comedy again because he sucks at everything else. Now Tyrone does comedy full time in Berlin. His comedy has been described as “comedy”.

I went to "Child from Wuhan". Will there be a lot of the same jokes?

No No No! It's a brand new show!!
