Event description

Description

An original solo performance and theater studies senior project in acting by Tarek Ziad, fusing stand up comedy and theatricality to create an hour long devised piece. Somewhere between Hannah Gadsby’s Nanette and Kristina Wong’s Wong Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, it interrogates his relationship with race in America and American Theater as a Person of Color, as well as provides meta-commentary on how these subjects are dealt with in comedy. It analyzes the insecurities children experience as they grow in a nation dissimilar from themselves and asks the question, "Why do we make fun of white people?"
