★★★★★ ABOUT LILIANA ★★★★★

Liliana Velasquez has crossed the boarder between worlds all her life. Raised in both entitled North and volatile South America moving back and forth from Colombia to the USA, she is a latina incognito; just white enough. She absorbs and creates diverse cultures through and against the immigrant struggle of her parents. The American Dream her parents taught her was “you can be anything”. Their catholic faith taught her otherwise. And as a young lady you were only meant to silently stand by. This tug of war fueled her and being a women never stopped her from doing it her way. Liliana shares her loves, her aches and her transformation into an independent thinking woman. She is proud to be queer and not perfect. She transforms from kept child bride to hairdresser to dominatrix, from ticket tout to art muse. The play explores her turbulent NYC years, her struggles, successes and failures, revealing emotional trauma, exuberant and hedonistic experiences – putting a new slant on the the speed hump phenomena when using (vaginal balls…?)

Liliana Velasquez has crossed borders all her life. Raised in Miami Medellin and New Jersey there is no role she cannot play and her comedy reflects this extravagant mix in her Latina-tude, Catholic guilt and American dreaming. As an adult, Liliana recklessly explored NYC, slipping in and out of different art forms, costumes and jobs. She has so many outrageous stories to tell, it would horrify her proud parents, Only now do they admire her comedic outlook on somany mistakes. Always hungry for new challenges, Liliana soon found another platforms for the performance that is her life: Berlin Neukölln. She is proud to be queer and not perfect, and enjoys waking up in the afternoons.

★★★★★ ABOUT DREW ★★★★★

Drew Portnoy traded the mountains of Colorado for the nightliife of Berlin over a decade ago. Then he became a father. His dry style and sharp tongue have made him a popular comedian throughout Germany and Europe in both German and English. And he was a finalist in Quatsch Comedy Club’s annual Talentschmiede and recently won NPR Berlin’s storytelling competition.

“He is one of Germany ‘s best kept secrets. Dry, Shrewd and understated he has the audience in the palm of his hand, with a barely concealed malevolence for all things stupid. He is, to overuse that well worn cliché, a comedian that other comedians love to watch.” — Logan Murray, comedian and author of Be a Great Stand Up

“The overall quality is invariably raised by stalwarts from the roster of Berlin ’s dedicated homegrown talents … Drew Portnoy [is among] the best.” — Time Out
