‘Cancer turned me into a comedian’
Londoner, comedian and performer, Tracy Kashi, will be hosting a night of live music, theatre, gags and candid advice on how she survived her unexpected cancer gap year.
Tickets are just £15 and 100% of artist profits from her new show will go to a charity close to her heart Future Dreams, which raises funds to support women through their breast cancer journey, as well as raising awareness and funding secondary breast cancer research projects.
The show titled, My Cancer Gap Year, will premiere on 31st October 2019 at the Jewish Community Centre London, JW3. It promises to be a night of uplifting music and comedy about Tracy’s experience with breast cancer – from shock diagnosis and treatment, through to tentative recovery. There may be tears, but there’ll also be lots of laughs, with a little help from jazz musicians, Joe Perkins and Jeremy Limb.
‘The show is my way of trying to do something useful with my experience; raising awareness, raising money, showing respect and gratitude for everyone that helped me, and perhaps help others to cope and heal. It is an honour to share my experience. It is an honour to be alive.’
