Nothing to be Done: Half dry, half sassy and mostly funny

Half dry, half sassy and mostly funny

Nothing to be Done at the 2014 New Zealand Fringe Festival

MEDIA RELEASE

Made in England. Raised in South Africa and Brazil. Studied in Wellington and lived in New York. Luwita Hana Randhawa may be Malaysian, but her international and nomadic background feeds well into her personality and her comedy.

After moving back to her hometown Kuala Lumpur in 2012, Luwita began to test her hand at stand-up comedy. Soon, she became a regular open-micer in the local stand-up scene and in September, she won the Best Female Youth Newcomer Award at the Short+Sweet Stand-Up Comedy Festival Malaysia.

As one of only a few up-and-coming female comics in the Malaysian scene, Luwita has in the past year also performed at shows in Hong Kong, Cambodia, Singapore and Sydney. Now she is coming to Wellington with her solo show Nothing to be Done for three nights during the 2014 Fringe.

Luwita finds the root of her jokes in the quotidian, delivering her observations and anecdotes in a dry and at times sassy manner. “I guess I tend to start with myself, poking fun at myself and my life. I think it’s a good place to start, to be introspective, and that way the audience gets to know you a little too. I’m looking forward to returning to Wellington, where I studied film and theatre for three years at Vic – there are some good stories in there to tell.”

Below are the full details of the show:

Nothing to be Done (45mins) | Feb 19-21, 830pm | Fringe Bar

The collected musings and broodings of a twenty-something former international student of Wellington, comedienne Luwita Hana Randhawa. Half dry, half sassy and mostly funny. Thumbs up.
