Sunanda loves Britney. Sunanda has always loved Britney. One might even say that Sunanda is obsessed with Britney, not quite in a leave-Britney-alone-2007-Youtube-Chris-Crocker way (although that was pretty gay) but more in a be-my-life-partner-or-I-will-die-and-seriously-Sunanda-is-so-gay-and-Britney-is-lighting-the-pathway-to-self-realization way.

Who else could a queer Indian kid living in Thailand turn to in the late 90’s for refuge but Britney Spears, the Princess of Pop?

It took Sunanda about a decade to realize that they didn’t want to BE Britney, they wanted to DO Britney and this is where the show begins. What comes next is a shit-storm of family drama, confusion, blonde-girl-addiction and lesbian-ing on a Vespa.

Directed by international powerhouse Candy Bowers.

As a producer, they’ve worked with Broad City and Amy Poehler too. Now, they perform stand up around Melbourne and collab with award-winning groups, PO PO MO CO and The Wholesome Hour. This year they also nabbed an enviable spot at AFTRS Talent Camp and look forward to being funny on the internet and small screen too!
