About the show
Four unique performers with a more theatrical approach to storytelling.
- Dean Temple (SoloCom)
- Voice of Authority: Dean can’t believe his luck when he goes to work for his multi-millionaire uncle, especially when it lands him in a $19 million lawsuit with the US Department of Justice. Only Zachary, a retired ballet dancer with a penchant for matzoh ball soup, can save him now. A comedy solo show with music based on a true story.
- Amanda Miller (Edinburgh Festival)
- How To Suffer Better: What does it mean to suffer better? In this one-woman comedy show, six unlucky contestants from different walks of life present their struggles to you, the audience. Hosted by a drunk woman who strips for empowerment, you’ll meet a musical hobo, lovelorn housemaid, sex-starved octogenarian, stressed clown, and angry teenage boy before you vote to determine who’s suffering the best.
- Mick Cohen-Carroll (Edinburgh Festival)
- Me Talking, Mostly: Me Talking, Mostly explores the state of modern comedy and the unspoken language that we all accept when we go to a comedy show; whether it be sketch, improv, stand-up or some other form. I want to shed light on the absurdity of these expectations, the eccentricity of the audience’s reactions and examine where humor really comes from.
- April Brucker (Entertainment Tonight)
- The Lady and President Tramp: A retrospective look at the rise to power of real estate tycoon and reality TV star Donald J. Tramp. Join ventriloquist and storyteller April Brucker as she recounts his rise to fame. The cast of characters includes Kellyanne Oneway, Mike Dispence, Melania Tramp, Voltimore Tramp, Mexican President Don Juan De Casanova De Gorgita, Steve Dannon, and Hillary Clifton.
