1990 Child from Wuhan: Trauma, Love, Diarrhoea

Moni Zhang is the WINNER of Berlin New Standup Award and founder of Berlin Mental Health Festival. From the sweatshops of Wuhan to the stages of Berlin, Moni has lived a life that's anything but ordinary. This show "Child from Wuhan" has been performed over 70 times all over Europe.

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.
