Bonkers /adjective\ bon·kers \ ˈbäŋ-kərz , ˈbȯŋ-\
Informal: CRAZY, MAD: such as
- Very fond, enthusiastic,
- Very angry, annoyed,
- Sometimes offensive : having or showing severe mental illness
Synonyms include: barmy, bedlam, certifiable, crazy, cuckoo, insane, kooky, loco, loony, mad, nutty, unbalanced, unhinged, wacko.
Bonkers is a show combining big standup-style laughs with a nuanced and honest account of living life “on the edge” and trying not to fall off. Navigating mental health and queer identities, it treads the line between belly-laugh comedy and realism, exploring the power of labels on the human experience and asking the question what is “normal” anyway?
Supported by CPT.
