JENANISTAN work in progress

BBC New Voices winner, Amused Moose National New Act Finalist and 99 Comedy Club Bursary Nominee, brings you a work-in-progress show of what it means to be “ethnic” in modern Britain.

Her dad is Palestinian, her mum Iraqi, but the closest to the West Bank she’s got to is the west bank off the River Thames. Growing up Middle Eastern in middle class middle England makes it pretty tricky being your ethnic self, especially when you’re an ethnicity rarer than an unfiltered Kardashian photo. (You’ve heard of Syrians but have you heard of Assyrians?).

“Sharp, smart comedian” The List

Ticket types this year are Paid, Pay What You Can and Free - this is how it works: Paid: The show is fully ticketed and you pay in advance or on the door; Pay What You Can: You can choose to buy a ticket in advanced to guarantee entry and what to pay over a minimum amount OR turn up at the venue to get in for free in any space that is left; Free: The show is free entry and can be ticketed or unticketed. Watch the show, and the performer will ask for donations at the end for those that would like to contribute.
