NYC Solocom 2021: Williams | Shine | Meehan
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.
6pm EST – Alexandria Williams: “Blackout: A Cabaret to Forget”
Like a bad Saturday night, Alex comes out of a blackout and wakes up in her own life. A night to remember, Alex unpacks what made her want to forget in the first place and takes things to the extreme (once again) in a cinematic and musical experience about coming out of the darkness into the spotlight.
6:35pm EST – Torrey Shine: “2020 Hindsight on COVID-19: A Pandemic Reflection”
We had 20/20 vision, but there was so much we couldn’t see coming. A series of poems reflect on shared social experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic in the year 2020.
7:10pm EST – John Meehan: “The Unsuspecting Sexiest Male”
A semi-autobiographical story about a person who got tired of watching other people live their best lives and decided to step out from behind the bar and live his. For once the everyday humble person gets celebrated.
