The year is 1987 and Brandi’s back from a long hiatus, eager to greet her fans and dish out the secret to her success: she got raped. Finally!
Practically speaking, Brandi Alexander is part spoken word, part stand-up comedy gone radically wrong. Brandi Alexander is an assault on rape and a cry for righteous anger as it demands to have the word rape horrify once again, instead of lull us back to the everyday. It allows space for a women’s rage, instead of asking her to forgive. It demonstrates what it might mean to have a woman playing a man’s game. And it explores how so much anger might be necessary to get to the laughter, or vice versa.
