Funny Girl


A young Kurdish girl to her parents: "I have good news and bad news. The bad news: I´m going to be a stand-up comedian. The good news: from today I´ll be wearing a Burka, but only on stage." Azime gets down to business with great hilarity, despite all the restrictions and prejudice of her surroundings.

True to the saying that rules are there to be broken, the author and screenwriter Anthony McCarten (screenwriter for "Bohemian Rhapsody", "The Darkest Hour", Oscar nominated for "The Theory of Everything" about Stephen Hawking) creates an explosive, highly dramatic and delightfully funny culture clash comedy.
