KenyaHandle it?

Irreverent. Candid. Just wrong on so many levels. A new player is in town. Keyna Handle It? Award winning Kenyan-born Australian comedian, Vincent Tshaka, is bringing to Edinburgh Fringe a fresh take on all things Kenyan and ridiculous.

This pioneer of African comedy on the Australian scene earned his reputation for his captivating storytelling and sharp punchlines headlining shows at comedy clubs and festivals across Australia and Canada, including Melbourne International Comedy Festival, St Kilda Laughs Festival, North Australian Festival of Arts, Adelaide Fringe and Fringe World Perth.

This is his life. An uncanny comedy of errors across two countries he has called home. Your entertainment for the night includes: being an African parent with Aussie children, intercultural marriage, what gets lost in translation, corruption, births and deaths. All the fun stuff.

One thing is for sure: this show is too offensive in Kenya. He’s tried. They can’t handle it.
