Finding the funny side of cancer: Emma Lange

From Saturday Morning, 10:35 am on 17 February 2024

Comedian's comedian Emma Lange is bringing a show to the fringe festival, based on her experience of a malignant, incurable brain tumor.  

'An Almighty Yes' is a solo show combining absurdist comedy with honest testimony from a performer returning to the bright lights for the first time in years.

Emma's stand-up routines were a fixture of the 1990s classic comedy scene, often appearing alongside the Topp Twins.  A Mainlander, you might also have found Emma in the bush, hunting and guiding.

'An Almighty Yes' is playing at the NZ Fringe Festival in Wellington and in Dunedin.
