NYC Solocom 2021: Simms | McDaniel | Klimiuk | Leonard

The Peoples Improv Theater proudly announces the return of NYC Solocom, livestreaming Thursday, June 3rd – Sunday, June 6th. NYC Solocom has launched over 400 new solo comedies that have gone on to longer runs, tours and festivals around the world (including the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.) 

 

NYC Solocom is a festival of new solo work. All shows presented are 75% – 100% new material, and are created specifically for the festival. NYC Solocom’s goal is to push artists to create a show that is meaningful, personal and to follow the fear. 

 

Enjoy these daring, original solo performances from the comfort of your own home, via the PIT livestreams on Youtube Live. 

 

8:30pm EST – Michele Simms: “What Is Love?” 

April 5, 1987, a girl’s heart was broken when The Karate Kid tied the knot. A deep mother wound sparks the journey to find out what love is. Feel the love, in all its forms.

 

8:55pm EST – Christian McDaniel: “Jordy’s Fake Submarine Mission”

In an effort to get over his divorce, Jordy Clementine turns to his love for all things aquatic and creates an alternate universe around him. Complete with hallucinations, talks with Don Knotts, and colorful sea shantys.

 

9:25pm EST – Kasia Klimiuk: “An Artist on the Verge” 

From Poland to the Hamptons, over to NYC and back to the Hamps, this show tells the tale of a quirky immigrant woman living a double life. Part artist, part corporate life prisoner, she navigates it all through improv, excel spreadsheets, dance, energetic blasts of gogo juice and her passion for artistic expression and making people laugh.

 

9:50pm EST – Pops Leonard: “Get Off My Lawn” 

Pops Leonard: Get Off My Lawn, the universal depiction of what one crotchety neighbor sees as his world is encroached upon through the ages. From pre-historic, biblical and present day views, Pops gives voice to common woes real and imagined.

 

EARLY BIRD DISCOUNT: Tickets are only $4.99 until May 31st! 

 

Festival passes available. Passholders will gain access to all twelve NYC Solocom show blocks.
