It’s not easy being a mother of four, Lebanese and Muslim and totally a Wog Bogan (aka “WOGAN”). For Frida Deguise, this is just her normal life. She is funny and outspoken about all the things that make her comedy unique. Being a Muslim woman, wearing a Metallica shirt and making fun of hiding explosives in her hijab, sure got a reaction!
Honouring the title of Australia’s only female Islamic comic wearing a hijab, Frida pushes the boundaries of perception, shows her world with HER rules. Her over-the-top bravado is balanced with brevity. Her controversy will make you explode with laughter.
Having toured on the annual comedy hit show A Very Woggy Xmas Gala with Joe Avati, Turkish Australian comedy sensation Tahir, better known to most as ‘Habib’ of Fat Pizza, and Gabriel Rossi, Frida Deguise really is the soul of wit.
Now, with two sold old shows under her belt debuting at Sydney’s Comedy Fringe Festival 2016, she is ready to take you all on, fighting the war on terror with laughter.
Co-writing on Wil Anderson’s Gruen Transfer is one of her many achievements, but the list goes on…
Some Saturday nights Frida performs her one-woman footy dance wearing her Manly guernsey, but you’re not lucky enough to see that!
