need some help

import random
start = 5

def even_odd(num):
    # If % 2 is 0, the number is even.
    # Since 0 is falsey, we have to invert it with not.
    return not num % 2

while start != True:
    random_num = random.randint(1, 99)
    if even_odd(random_num) == True:
        print("{} is even").format(random_num)
        print("{} is odd").format(random_num)
    start=start -1
