‼️ Moni will bring this show to Edinburgh Fringe, the world's largest performance art festival the whole August. Catch the LAST PREVIEW in Berlin ‼️

From the sweatshops of Wuhan to the stages of Berlin, Moni Zhang has lived a life that's anything but ordinary.

In this one-woman show, Moni weaves together the worlds of storytelling and standup comedy to take you on a journey through her impoverished childhood, dysfunctional family, and struggles with mental health and relationships.

But don't worry, it's not all tears and therapy sessions – Moni brings her trademark humor to the stage, with jokes that are as dark as they are hilarious.

❓Is it funny? Yes, you possibly will pee a bit.

❓Is it only funny? No, you might cry a little.

🏆 Edinburgh Fringe 2022 sell-out show

🏆 Winner of Berlin New Standup Award 2019

Who is Moni Zhang?

Originally From Wuhan, a cold, desolate place that became way too famous in 2020. A regular in The Berlin Comedy Scene and The Winner of Berlin NewStand Up Award, 2019.

Moni doesn’t hold back with her material. She approaches sensitive subjects like race, sex, and farting with the finesse of a bulldozer. Her wit, set up and unique delivery makes her act fun to watch, while her vulnerability makes her the bravest person you'll meet.

Besides comedy, Moni dedicates herself to promoting awareness for mental health. She founded the Berlin Mental Health Festival, a week-long art festival including many workshops and art performances. She also produces the weekly "It's Mental! Podcast" where she has in depth conversations with creatives about their mental health journey.

🎤 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”.
