Thanks to everyone who supported my debut solo comedy show at La Mama Theatre!

You helped make my impossible dream come true.

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’m constantly re-discovering who I am as an artist. I’m exploring, experimenting and playing, unlocking unexpected joys in my writing life.

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.
