Facebook event

Jayran grew up in a conservative Iranian family. She was expected to become a doctor, lawyer or engineer. To the horror of her parents, she decided to go into stand up comedy at the age of 16 in 2009.

Since then, Jayran has regularly performed stand up comedy around Auckland, and her parents have recovered from their initial horror.

Funerals and Fecal Matter is her first hour-long solo show. It will explore her early life experiences from a comedic point of view-including struggling with the expectations of Iranian parents, not getting invited to parties, and romantic rejection. (This will be funny).

Why are there so many reality shows about cooking and so few about fascism? What is the best poem to read at your loved one's funeral? And where do you draw the line between following Jesus and stalking him? These questions and more will be explored.

There will be something for everyone. If you are interested in the food Moses ate while wandering the desert, there's a joke about that. If you are fascinated by the finer points of living rooms, there's a joke about that. If abortion-based reality TV is what makes your heart sing, there's a joke about that. If the murder of kittens gets you up in the morning, I'm sorry but there isn't a joke about that. You will just have to settle for a one liner about erectile dysfunction encased in a fine confection of a constipation joke. It will be funny.
