Driving Around

Amrita Dhaliwal


Categories: Theater, Comedy & Improv

Dates: September 14, 2023 - September 16, 2023

Run Time: 55 mins

Venue: Fidget Space



A provocative brew of absurdism, American naivety and dark comedy, invite you into an imaginative and fanciful world. Perpetual fabrication and buried social commentary are revealed with effervescent zing and cheeky truth. A show full of insights into what unites us and separates us, Driving Around takes you on a ride that is so far past stupid that it becomes compelling!

Dhaliwal is regal, commanding… arrestingly unpredictable’ **** (Theatre Bubble) and brings ‘hilarious clowning skills’**** (Wee Review) by mixing ‘absurdist techniques, clowning and slapstick”**** (The List Review). And ‘an abundance of gaggery and tomfoolery… with impeccable timing and control’ **** (Theatre People Review, Melbourne).

Based in Los Angeles, this is a rare chance to see this Punjabi American comedian. Awards include Best Comedy Winner Melbourne Fringe 2019, Featured LA Weekly’s 15 Best Things to Do, Ensemble CBS Diversity Showcase 2017.
