Amrita Dhaliwal (Chicago + LA)
A provocative brew of physical comedy, absurdism and American naivety invite you onto an imaginative and fanciful journey. Perpetual fabrication and buried social commentary are revealed with effervescent zing and cheeky sassiness. A show full of insights into what unites us and separates us, Amrita takes you on a ride that is so far past stupid that it becomes compelling! There are no seat belts in life - so just get on the BlundaBus.
Dhaliwal brings ‘hilarious clowning skills’**** (Wee Review) by mixing ‘absurdist techniques, clowning and slapstick”**** (The List Review). And ‘an abundance of gaggery and tomfoolery… with impeccable timing and control’ **** (Theatre People Review, Melbourne).
Amrita Dhaliwal is a Punjabi American comedian and devising artist based in Los Angeles whose style has been compared to Mel Brooks. Her work explores themes of humanity through the lens of the current political climate.
