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

🎤 Daniel Stern 🇺🇸 (INS @danielandstern)

From the United States, now based in Berlin; Daniel Stern is a former talk show host, a retired competitive eater, a screenwriter, actor, and stand up comedian.

Stern sews absurd observations together with threads of unhinged wit; his performances are a frayed quilt of hilarious anarchy, earnest confessions, and stories about riding the bus. He writes and performs sketch comedy, hosts all kinds of events, models and acts. Daniel podcasts with Berlin news show Radio Spaetkauf and produces two monthly events: "Projectile!" and "The Staniel Dern Show".

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

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