An Asian Queer Story: Coming Out to Dead People (In the Snifter room)

In this dark, hilarious, and heartfelt coming-of-age solo show, US comedian Ricky Sim (New York Comedy Festival) wrestles with the decision of coming out of the closet to his traditional Chinese-Malaysian mother just as she is diagnosed with cancer. This stand-up and storytelling show, which was sold out in NY, explores the meaning of acceptance and grief within an immigrant family. It’s also a powerful reminder why we shouldn’t think about our ancestors while having gay sex. ‘Had me on a whole ass ride of laughter and tears!’ (Non Kuramoto).
