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. From her struggles with love to her battles with diarrhea (yes, you read that right), Moni doesn't shy away from the tough topics.

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

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

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.
