(NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ) -- Former triathlete and engineer turned comedian and mother Anu Vaidyanathan is bringing her Edinburgh Fringe cult hit one-woman show BC: AD (Before Children: After Diapers) to The Stress Factory on Wednesday, May 31, 2023 at 7:30pm.  This is a stand-up comedy show and one mad, brown mommy's take on how the definitions of words change before and during motherhood.

BC:AD (Before Children, After Diapers) is an invitation to anyone that finds themselves slightly overdrawn, mostly obscure and definitely needing the sound of another voice to reason with their own challenges. In her debut standup hour, Anu paints a peripatetic picture of a comedian, filmmaker and sometime engineer who loves endurance sports, including parenting.

From the equatorial latitudes of Madras, India to the glacial confines of Munich, Germany, the throughline of BC:AD is anything but a line. It resembles a cooked thread of spaghetti. Or string cheese past its due date, with enough twists and turns to make the most ambitious wedgie, jealous.

If before children, Anu was considered unique for being one of few women to race triathlons, after diapers she finds herself being the least common multiple. A mum. And that might be something to write home about.

Tickets are $25 and available for purchase online.

Anu is also a filmmaker, comedian and engineer whose memoir Anywhere But Home was long-listed for the Mumbai Film Festival’s word-to-screen market in 2016. Her feature scripts have found themselves at the final rounds at Sundance and Rotterdam.

As a comedian, she has gigged across greater Europe and London and has trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London and Ecole Philippe Gaulier in France.

The Stress Factory is located at 90 Church Street in New Brunswick, New Jersey.
