Amna Bee Don't Tell My Family

IN PERSON

Amna Bee Don't Tell My Family

Amna was raised to be a standard Pakistani woman but has gone ahead and beat those standards down to a pulp, along with her family’s expectations of her.

Amna started her stand-up comedy career in Alice Springs, NT after discovering that she is pretty hilarious. A perpetual smartass, she is now bringing her unique brand of humour to Melbourne International Comedy Festival in this sparkling new 50-minute show. Join her as she chronicles her journey from living in Pakistan, Canada and around obscure locations in Australia. She has tales to tell of marriage, divorce, dating, political activism, being a hippie (not a hipster mind you) and general survival as someone whose opinions don't always match her physical appearance. Her worldview is as unique as her life experiences. 

Come along for a wild ride of crossing borders, taboos and expectations – one debacle at a time!

'A certified funny f*%ker.' Nicole Stevens
