KWAME ASANTE: TEENAGE HEARTBLOB
Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee and medical doctor Kwame was overweight in his late childhood and obese in his early teens. Dealing with weight issues in his formative years, split between growing up in London and spending his summers in rural Ghana played a significant part in the person he is today. Now, working in the NHS and sharing in other people's experiences of obesity has forced him to reflect on his own experiences, and taught him many valuable and heart-warming lessons which he shares with the audience in this new show.

Nina turns up with her favourite ingredients to bake the perfect showcake when a radical change occurs: Monkey takes unadulterated control of the whole enterprise. Abandoning all etiquette, Monkey is on the loose in a whole new way. Following the three-year UK sell-out success of In Your Face, this British Comedy Award winner returns with a brand-new show.
