Refusing to be defined by a turbulent past, comedian and performer Oliver Twist reflects on his time as a refugee while carefully unpacking his present-day experiences. Delicately told and impossible to forget, his one-person show proves that exceptional storytelling and belly-aching laughter are powerful antidotes to trauma.
Moving from Rwanda to Brisbane in 2014, Twist is one of Australia’s most exciting young comedians. A RAW national finalist, he has opened for Wil Anderson and Becky Lucas, and performed alongside the likes of Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish. A sharp-witted storyteller, Twist is an electrifying, one-of-a-kind young talent. Jali is a vibrant journey that patiently demonstrates there is light at the end of the tunnel.
