The Curry Monster has a spicy bite to it

'The Curry Monster' is a little bit rude, a little bit spicy, and a lot of fun. Sandeep Totlani is a comedian and self-described fat man who loves butter chicken, Bollywood dancing, is forever on the lookout for undercover Immigration agents, and enjoys pappadums a little too much. 'The Curry Monster' is Sandeep's debut solo comedy show about Indian food, clashing cultures, racial stereotypes, and working and living as a student and an immigrant in Australia.

Sandeep was born and raised in India and came to Australia to study as a student. He lives in Brisbane and has spent the past few years making a name for himself in comedy. He was handpicked among the top 5 Comics nationally in Nova's RM's Comedic Free Thinker Competition in 2018, was a finalist for Queensland RAW Comedy 2018 (MICF), is a regular at Australian comedy venues, and has been selling out shows at festivals, FRINGE WORLD and at Bris Funny Fest in 2019.

'The Curry Monster' packed a lot of punch, with Sandeep joking and ranting about Australia's immigration policies, and sharing several experiences he has had during his time in Australia. His jokes were a little bit dark and politically incorrect, and sometimes got gasps and groans from the audience, but his observations were often on point, like when he pointed out what it is like as an Indian to have to pay $45 to learn yoga from a white woman.

It was interesting to hear about his experiences with casual racism, his thoughts on marriage, white privilege, racial stereotypes about Indians, and what it is like for him to order a coffee in Australia and have a white girl take his order. Sandeep had a great stage presence and did a good job interacting with his audience. He pulled people up on stage, asked people questions, and got everyone busting out with some Bollywood dance moves.

'The Curry Monster' is showing at the Laugh Resort, at the Shoe and Bar Café, in Yagan Square as part of FRINGE WORLD until Sunday, 16 February 2020 at 7.30pm.
