Stand up satirical comedy live at The Palms at Crown.
After a 12-year hiatus from the stage, award-winning actor, film director and screenwriter Yılmaz Erdogan returns with a new one-man comedy show.
Münasaka takes its cue from George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion. First performed in 1913, it is about a professor who makes a bet that he can train a poor Cockney flower girl, Eliza Doolittle, to pass for a duchess at an ambassador’s garden party. Essentially, it lampooned Britain’s rigid British class system.
Erdogan puts his own spin on this famous story, creating a two act, two-hour show that he first performed at the Istanbul Comedy Festival in November to rave reviews. He’s added a cool word play on ‘munakasa’, which in Turkish means ‘argument’, switching the last four letters so it reads saka, or ‘joke’.
Using digital displays and social media, and supported by his sharp observations, Erdogan takes the audience on a hilarious, but “real” journey of his life and Turkey, including his experiences at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival where he was promoting The Water Diviner alongside Russell Crowe.
