Zuma Puma aka Nelly Scott clowns around in zany feminist comedy Don't Do It, Don't Do It, Do It!


Move over, conventional clowns of the past there's a new cool clown on the block that goes by the name of Zuma Puma, and she's here to kick the patriarchy's butt with her quirky comedy Don't Do It, Don't Do It, Do It!

Zuma Puma aka Nelly Scott is an award-winning, one of a kind clown who delivers a uniquely eccentric show, unlike anything you've ever seen before. After graduating from two highly prestigious clown schools in Montreal and Paris, she has spent the past ten years travelling the globe to showcase her physical clown-themed comedic, theatrical and musical talents.

With a name as peculiar as Zuma herself, Don't Do It, Don't Do It, Do It! centres around the dilemma that every "Good Girl" faces: to do it, or not to do it that is the question. Throughout the fun and feminism-filled show, Zuma battles her alter ego known as "The Rules", who manifests right before the audience's eyes with a hunched back, scrunched up face and devilish voice.

From singing a heartfelt duet with a sock puppet of her own hoo-ha (complete with overgrown pubic hair and all) to crawling into a fairy light-draped, glittery artistic depiction of her own genitalia the insanely impulsive Zuma delivers an unpredictable and unusual performance where audiences never know what is going to happen next!

Harnessing the power of physical comedy, audience interaction and clown tomfoolery, Zuma promotes feminist messages of taking back ownership of your body, sexual liberation and rebelling against societal norms. If there's one thing for sure, audiences can expect the unexpected and more than a few sexual references.

Zuma entertained audiences with her zany antics in Don't Do It, Don't Do It, Do It! this Fringe season for a limited time only in The Bally at Gluttony until Sunday 10 March.
