Twenty-three-year-old comedian ZoŽ Sitas is already making a name for themselves in the NSW comedy scene. They were a Raw Comedy NSW State Finalist in 2018 and have even supported Wil Anderson at the Comedy Store. After a sold-out run of their debut solo show at Sydney Comedy Festival and tours to regional NSW, Melbourne and Cape Town, ZoŽ is bringing 'With Two Dots' to Adelaide audiences as part of the Adelaide Fringe.
To start the show ZoŽ bounced onto the stage with high energy lifting the crowd's mood immediately. As it is the preview show, ZoŽ acknowledged the show is yet to be polished and began with an ongoing joke of fart noises that genuinely made the audience laugh every time.
From there, ZoŽ took us from their birth country of South Africa to grow up in Australia. Their coming of age followed the typical stages: jazz ballet, horse girl and skater kid. They found relatability about adjusting to Australia, their South African family, and Cypriot heritage by connecting to everyone's desire to fit in. Likewise, ZoŽ comically delved into personal issues like being gay, coming out as non-binary and living with endometriosis.
ZoŽ's eccentric movements throughout the show added to their wonderfully odd and relatable humour. They also demonstrated their strong improv background for a range of topics from nursing to the Apartheid.
ZoŽ Sitas: With Two Dots is a silly and hilarious show that is sure to only get better with time. ZoŽ was a joy to watch and review as their unabashed attitude and energetic persona will make you feel like their friend.
ZoŽ Sitas: With Two Dots will be running at Rhino Room until February 29 (excluding Sunday and Monday), as part of Adelaide Fringe. Book your tickets here.
