Karen Hobbs Ed2016

When Karen Hobbs was 24 she was diagnosed with cervical cancer. So she did what any ordinary person would do and made a Fringe show about it. Journey with Hobbs through her diagnosis, treatment and post-cancer life. From almost being on morning television, to her Dad’s emotionally stifled reaction to the news, Hobbs recreates it all with a sense of disbelief that something so terrible could be so ridiculously funny. She is a confident and endearing performer, challenging the stigma of cervical cancer with wit and a determination to see the funny side. This is quirky, heartfelt comedy at its best – an honest and hilarious show with a lot of heart.

Underbelly Med Quad, until 29 Aug.
