Sold Out at Melbourne Comedy Festival. Directed by Candy Bowers
SUNANDA LOVES BRITNEY - CANCELLED
DOORS 5PM // KITCHEN OPEN FOR DINNER // SHOW STARTS 5.45PM
SUNANDA LOVES BRITNEY is the SOLD OUT Melbourne International Comedy Festival show returning for one night only in this encore event! Catch Best Newcomer nominee, Sunanda, in this Bollywood Queer Extravaganza, featuring dancers and a DJ.
Sunanda loves Britney. Sunanda’s always loved Britney. One might even say that Sunanda is obsessed with Britney, not quite in a leave-Britney-alone-2007-Youtube-Chris-Crocker way (although that was pretty gay) but more in a be-my-life-partner-or-I-will-die-and-seriously-Sunanda-is-so-gay-and-Britney-is-lighting-the-pathway-to-self-realization way. Who else could a queer Indian kid living in Thailand turn to in the late 90’s for refuge, but the Princess of Pop?
It took Sunanda about a decade to realize that they didn’t want to BE Britney, they wanted to DO Britney and this is where the show begins. What comes next is a shit-storm of family drama, confusion, blonde-girl-addiction and lesbian-ing.
Directed by international powerhouse Candy Bowers, SUNANDA LOVESBRITNEY is Sunanda’s best newcomer nominated debut at Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
