SOOZ KEMPNER: PlayStation

Award-winning comedian and viral sensation Sooz Kempner (Best Newcomer Musical Comedy Awards, Funny Women Variety Award Winner, Broadway World Best Comedy Show Nominee) completes her trilogy of gaming shows following 2018’s Super Sonic 90s Kid and 2019’s Mega Drive with PlayStation.
Sooz got a PlayStation, the first adult console, when she was 14 and was finally a grown-up. Now though, at 36, she’s not feeling particularly adult. Gaming, growing up and getting to know who you really are in a stand-up show for anyone who remembers the 90s and had big dreams as a kid. Suitable for non-gamers!
Sooz went viral in Summer 2019 with her Twitter thread about working in Ayia Napa as a Christina Aguilera tribute act and throughout 2020 has been a Twitch variety streamer. Her videos where she delivers Donald Trump speeches verbatim as Liza Minnelli have been shared all around the world.
