Debut Solo Comedy Show | 6-10 March 2024 | La Mama Theatre, Melbourne

Empowering comedy celebrating womanhood.


My name is Taku Mbudzi and I love to tell stories — give me a pen, a microphone or a camera and I’ll have something to say. I’m fired up about authentic voices telling their own stories and enjoy using humour to help young people speak up and out for themselves.

I often capture my writing adventures on audio, so tune in to Two Words with Taku, wherever you find your fave podcasts and subscribe to join our podcast community.
