Radhika Vaz is Old. With a whole new show.
After successful, sold-out runs in New York and all across India Radhika Vaz is ready with her second one-woman comedy show‘Older. Angrier. Hairier.’
This time around the irreverent, hilariously funny comedian focuses her wit on the universal themes of children, ageing, and domestic duty. While tackling complicated issues isn’t new territory for Vaz, with OAH she has established herself as a socially relevant commentator unapologetically mocking conventional wisdom.
With an appeal that crosses both age and gender lines, Vaz leaves the audience helpless with laughter in a high-octane performance that shows us all how women are really very funny.
“Vaz is breaking gender barriers.” – The Daily Beast, NY.
