The Tokenists

Through the power of friendship and comedy, five people of colour put on a sketch show deconstructing race, relationships and rice. They're no longer satisfied with being the token – get ready as they take centre-stage and share sketches based on their personal experiences and absurdist imaginations.

Join seasoned performers Pedro Cooray (Completely Improvised Potter), Meerna Yousif (The Big HOO-HAA!), Tej Munuganti (The Leak), Hooi Khaw (The Improv Conspiracy), and Mike Nam-Lee (The Improv Conspiracy) as they finally make their parents proud.
