Making her New Zealand debut Huffington Post's ‘Favorite Female Comedian’, Desiree Burch, challenges the notion of a post-racial America in this interactive carnival of race and capitalism. 

With a socially conscious comedic style reminiscent of Richard Pryor and Louis CK, Burch uses stand-up, current events and autobiography to speak to America’s growing majority of minority experiences. 

Following a Fringe First award-winning performance at the Edinburgh Fringe, Tar Baby takes a funny and inclusive look at the scary and divisive subject of race.
