Post-Soviet Upbringing

It’s a journey to the verge of the abyss and back. I tell the story as it begun - a dorky chubby kid born out of the Cold War era “darkness” of the USSR goes on to witness the rebirth of his homeland through the edgy yet sheepishly silly 90’s to become a double college degree sporting college professor and school teacher who moonlights as a bouncer. As my first night club shift boss used to say “King Kong ain’t got shit on me!”

Welcome to the “rocky road” of a Eastern-European youth on his way to “greatness”, silently hoping that the watery cliffs at the harbour will not be the end of the journey for his hairy apelike stature. What you will hear is silly, shocking and sugar-coat free. In one way or the other, everything in this “tale of two clans” has happened to the narrator. And somehow he’s still standing!

This year we have two entry methods: Free & Unticketed or Pay What You Can
Free & Unticketed: Entry to a show is first-come, first served at the venue - just turn up and then donate to the show in the collection at the end.
Pay What You Can: For these shows you can book a ticket to guarantee entry and choose your price from the Fringe Box Office, up to 30 mins before a show. After that all remaining space is free at the venue on a first-come, first-served bases. Donations for walk-ins at the end of the show.
