Alice Fishbein// Leo Still Dies in the End
In April 1999, a six-year-old was allowed to watch the 1997 classic “Titanic” on a VHS after her mom taped it off of HBO. Over the years, she went through various stages of obsession, including watching it every day, memorizing it, and making it a part of her personality – so much so that she created her own version of it, running at a mere 1 hour and 45 minutes. This is a shortened, comedic retelling of that shortened version. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, your heart will go on (even though Jack’s does not)!
Ben Miller// Volcano
Ben Miller spent a month as the Artist in Residence at Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park, the first ever stand-up comedian selected by the National Parks Arts Foundation. This was probably a terrible mistake on their part. What jokes can a man trapped between two volcanoes come up with? Watch as this scientist turned stand-up comedian explores volcanology, entomology, and himself (not in that way, you perverts).
Tucker Iverson// Work/Life Balance
Two weeks ago, Tucker left his “dream job” at a major media company. In this storytelling comedy show, he explores why he chose to leave through all the jobs he’s had, both good (soccer camp counselor) and bad (manager of a remote advertising team).
Mariel Grullon// Bored in the Bodega presents: Calmado en el Colmado
A comical look into the sequence of events, that have lead us to where we are now with Jezus TheBodegaCat as the spirit animal guiding us throughout the journey. Intertwining puppetry, audio affects, music, stand-up and old fashioned storytelling to paint the picture.
