'A must-see.' - The Weekly Review
“Annie Louey stands out in the stand-up crowd because she is a young woman with Asian heritage who can mine her background for rich stories of culture clashes and dramatic stories of life and death.”
‘The tone of the show ranged from poignant to ribald.’
‘Annie blends humour and pathos seamlesslessly.’
‘Annie knows how to interact with you, and keep you on your toes during her show.’
There was talk of a near-death experience, secrets, lies and burning things. Sounds like a gloomy run sheet, right? Well, Annie managed to make the whole thing oddly uplifting and a little bit silly.
'The show has really helped in making me accept you can be all these things… you can be a burns survivor, a comedian and work a day job. You don’t have to suppress any part of you.'
Mandarin Beats chats to a Perth Fringe World Festival artiste, stand up comedian Annie Louey from Melbourne with her 'Butt Donut' comedy show.
'With razor-sharp wit and an entirely well-written script, Louey performs well above the standard set by most stand-ups of her age.'
Louey is relatable and charming, as she shares stories from her childhood, teens, and early adulthood.
'When most people think of grief, pain and life-changing experiences, a butt donut is probably the last thing that comes to mind.'
