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 an alcoholic father, forced to combat sexist stereotypes, she discovers her voice and purpose in comedy.

Japanese comedian, Kazu Kusano delivers a one-two punch of wry observation, and raw physicality.
