From a sweatshop in the ghetto of Wuhan, Moni made her way to Berlin. She searched hard for love, until a severe depression hit her, forcing her to face unresolved childhood trauma.

This one-woman show is a fine blend between storytelling & standup comedy. I'm going to share a true story about my impoverished childhood, dysfunctional family, sexuality, and diarrhea.

❓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.
