Tonight and tomorrow are the last two chances to the see the debut of “Self-ish” at the Toronto Fringe Festival. Starring Diana Bang and written by Kuan Foo (both of Assaulted Fish Sketch Comedy) and directed by Dawn Milman (Assaulted Fish Alumnus director).
Here’s what the reviewers say:
“Bang’s performance is dynamic and delivered everything that this part demanded.”
“Kuan Foo’s script resonates especially for Asian-Canadian audience members. When Esther’s tears finally come, Bang has no trouble digging deep, and in the intimate BMO Incubator, it’s hard not to feel those same emotions.” (4 out 5)
“…Bang, a magnetic and assured performer, inhabits Esther Jin with charismatic ease.” (B+)

Hey Fish Fans,
If you are in Toronto be sure to catch Diana debuting her solo show “Self-ish” at the Toronto Fringe Festival. Written by Kuan and directed by Fish alumni director Dawn Milman, Self-ish tells the story of Esther Jin, a 30-something Korean-Canadian, navigating her relationship with her family in the aftermath of a recent tragedy. It’s funny too! Honest!
Here are some opening night reviews!
Seven shows left! Don’t miss out!
Rated 14A, for coarse language and violence against cardboard boxes.
