It’s not easy being a mother of four, Lebanese and Muslim. But with a hijab and a microphone, Frida Deguise is smashing any stereotypes people might have of Muslim women in comedy. She is funny and outspoken, pushing the boundaries of perception and making her own rules about what a Muslim woman is allowed to say and what her audience is allowed to laugh at.

Frida performed in her first solo stand up show at the Sydney Fringe 2016 and toured with the annual comedy hit show, A Very Woggy Xmas Gala. Frida breaks down any preconceptions with her explosive comedy in regular appearances in comedy clubs around Sydney and the USA.

He’s toured The Netherlands, New Zealand, and of course Australia where he’s performed in every state, every capital city, most regional centres, and the waters of Australia & the South Pacific.
