I’M TOO FAT FOR THIS SHOW
I'm Too Fat for This Show is an award-winning, internationally travelled solo show that’s been changing the conversation on mental health and eating disorders across the globe.
Dubbed “one of the most commanding one person shows around today,” this shockingly hilarious, brutally honest piece tells the story of a woman going head to head with her best frenemy of TWENTY YEARS – her personified Eating Disorder.
Through 18 characters, multi-media effects, and gut-busting humor, the show defies preconceived notions about these topics and connects performer and audience in the mutually experienced dilemma that is LIFE.
