'An honest, funny and touching insight into
modern British Asian masculinity'

Evening Standard

Bawdy and irrepressible asylum seeker auntie netta will be providing her unique take on Britain - from its people and politics to the mysteries of the Venezuelan bikini wax - in the world premiere of auntie netta's Holiday for Asylum. Nimmi Harasgama's character creation is already an internet sensation with her own TV chat show in Sri Lanka! Don't miss her first live show - a fresh and funny perspective on life in the UK.

Joining auntie is our cult verbatim comedy The Trouble with Asian Men. Created entirely from real-life interviews, this revealing and laugh-out-loud show lifts the lid on modern day Asian men in their own words. A vital, tender and often hilarious insight into lives that surround us everyday.
