Yasemin Sabuncu: The illest - Event image

About this event

A joyful and off the wall exploration of the meaning of life when things don't work out how you expect. Featuring comedy and stories like: taking ayahuasca with shamans, awkward near death experiences, living your best life, surviving her own Ground Hog day, and her crush on Keanu Reeves. 

Inspired by when Yasemin felt 'the illest' and when Doctors offered no answers. Desperate, she moved to the Mecca of wellness in Byron Bay to turn her life around. There she left no stone unturned on her path of self transformation living in the local free wheeling counter culture.  It was there she was diagnosed with endometriosis and ADHD and learnt how to thrive with these conditions. Join Yasemin as she shares her lust for life and adventures down the rabbit hole. This heart-warming, hard-hitting, glitter-filled comedy presents a painfully poignant look at illness and approaches we can take to the unexpected hurdles in life.


Please note:
This event has had a price update since the Adelaide Fringe guide was printed.
