About The Show

Get ready for a night of side-splitting laughter, eye-covering cringing and poignant storytelling at Is This Normal?, the debut one-woman show from award-winning storyteller Ansa Edim. Often the "only one" - the only Black person, the only fat person, the only fat Black person - Ansa navigates the dating space with humour and resilience. Determined to represent women like her as more than just the fat, funny friend (though she is that too), Ansa's unique voice and relatable tales make this show a must-see for anyone questioning what 'normal' is for them.

Upcoming Show Times:

August 2-10, 2024 at theSpaceUK @ Surgeons Hall at 22:15 (1hr)

August 15-16 and 19-21, 2024 at the Speakeasy @ The Royal Scots Club at 19:45 (1hr)

I'm an award-winning storyteller, performer, and walking dating disaster based in Washington, DC. For much of my adult life, I have been navigating single life with its complicated twists and turns and sharing my stories on stage and in writing. My stories have helped make me a 2022 MothSLAM Champion Storyteller and put me on stages like Washington, DC's John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts and the Lincoln Theatre.
