The maestro of feel-good comedy is back on tour with his new show. Fresh from sell-out tours of Australia and New Zealand, as heard on BBC Radio 4 Life: An Idiot’s Guide and What Does the K Stand For?

‘It was all fabulous. But it was when riffing with the audience that Amos truly excelled. With a packed venue ready on his side, Amos drew people into his routines; his finely honed sensibility turned innocent remarks into comedy gold’ (Herald Sun).

‘Warmest comic around, able to riff off a crowd and make them feel good about themselves’ (Sunday Times).

‘Uplifting stand-up from a charming performer’ (Time Out).

Lady Fingers & Empire Biscuits

ROSANA CADE presents
A performance exploring the historic relationship between Britain and India and the sexual legacy of colonialism.

BOOK-NOW_ICON23 – 25 October 2014

In 1860 the British ruling force in India instated the Indian Penal Code, enforcing a unifying law across the whole country for the first time. Section 377 of the IPC stated that carnal intercourse against the order of nature was illegal. Since then, this law has been used to persecute people who engage in homosexual acts. Previous to British rule in India, there are no records of any person being persecuted for acts of same-sex love. There isn’t a word in any Indian language that defines people by their sexuality.

In Lady Fingers & Empire Biscuits, Rosana Cade explores this export of British Victorian ideas about sex and how they have permeated through time; the confusion between modern and traditional notions of identity in each country; and the impact of the English language on sexual discourse in India.

Rosana Cade is an artist based in Glasgow whose work and research is rooted in a queer discourse. She travelled to India to collaborate with local video artist Afrah Shafiq and interview queer people in Mumbai and Dehli as part of this process.
