30 countries, 10 schools, 6 languages (ok, not totally fluently, but who’s counting?) ...so, where am I from? Good question.

With her internationally sold-out show, including the Just for Laughs festival, Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Fringe World, Canada-based comedian, Aliya Kanani, is set to bring her sought-after show to Sydney!

Aliya takes us on a turbulent journey with tales of fitting in, sticking out and standing up. Her pleasant nature, combined with her fiery spirit, will leave you energized and uplifted.

“While her ‘otherness’ is the central theme of the conversation in Where You From, From?, the heart of Kanani's show is in forming a ‘togetherness’ with the room and her audience...ensuring the audience always has plenty to laugh at and plenty to bond over.” - My Melbourne Arts, 2019

How does one find a place of belonging in a place they don’t fit in?

Aliya learned to adapt and take up space in her ever-changing surroundings, developing thick skin and a quick wit by virtue of her circumstance.

Visiting over 30 countries, Aliya observed human nature and got life lessons through the impressive variety of people she encountered. Her curious nature sometimes got her into trouble, but somehow she always talked her way out... usually by making people laugh!

After all her roaming, Aliya still can’t figure out how to answer the one question she’s asked every place she’s ever been: “Where you from?”

“Feel connect to humanity through humour. By the end you feel like you could easily watch another hour of her – display her comical wisdom." ★★★★ Fourth Wall Media, 2020

Known for her playful and mischievous personality, Aliya has appeared on StandUp NBC-New York, SiriusXm’s Top Comic, JFL42, CBC and toured though Canada, USA and Australia!
