Mirth Control presents:
Chelsea Hart is bringing a work-in-progress of their upcoming Edinburgh Fringe comedy hour "Damet Garm" to the Tower Bridge Arms!
The show draws on inspiration from the ongoing Iranian revolution. A Tiktoker who became an unexpected voice against the IRGC, Chelsea explores the contrasts between the ground in Iran, and our own increasingly polarised political climate in the west. Iranians have become a beacon of what a united, woman-led, liberation movement looks like. What is the secret ingredient that the west is missing?
"Damet Garm" in Persian translates to "May your breath stay warm" meaning you're wishing for the person to stay alive and healthy. It is a phrase full of empathy, enthusiasm, and community. Drawing on their own experiences as an activist, Chelsea peers into these questions and more in this debut comedy hour.
