Comedy, Storytelling


“A Fringe gem and not to be missed” - Beyond James (Hamilton, On) A grandmother should spoil you from time to time, no? Well, not Kenny Streule's grandmother. Immerse yourself in a collection of memories that explain how Kenny was raised by a wild beaver. Using comedy, puppetry and movement, he examines his relationship with his Swiss German grandmother. Winner of the Best New Artist Award at FESTN4 2024 presented by the Orlando Fringe. "Streule is authentically charming in an amiably awkward way." - Orlando Weekly "The charismatic Streule does not fail in delivering exactly the show that will delight Fringe regulars and casual theatergoers alike" - Orlando Performer "Streule has the peppy personality to win the audience over." - Orlando Sentinel “Malunderstood is a fantastic one-man story, that’s almost like sitting with your best-friend through 45-minutes of therapy.” -, Montreal
