Born into darkness, comedy is her superpower. Growing up in a dysfunctional family in Japan, Kazu dreams of escape. Raised by a mother suffering from schizophrenia and a distant alcoholic father, forced to combat sexist stereotypes, she discovers her voice and purpose in comedy. An award-winning solo performer, Kazu delivers a one-two punch of wry observation, and raw physicality. A bonus surprise guest comedian will open the show. “Kusano is a consummate storyteller,” -San Francisco Chronicle.
