Funeral Bouquet

8:00 PM20:00

Funeral Bouquet

A dark (oh take it easy) musical comedy based on the life and projections of Fiona Landers. This show has it all, including material about rape and cancer. But no strobe light, so still pretty chill.

Tickets ($8): https://www.eventbrite.com/e/funeral-bouquet-tickets-61470097717

Written and Performed by Fiona Landers Choreographed and Directed by Murphy Cross, who won a Tony for directing (!)

Music and Lyrics by Fiona Landers Musical Arrangements and Direction by Greg Smith, who is GREAT

********Fiona Landers is a writer, actor, and singer who is best known for playing the role of Sophia in a pivotal Valentine's Day episode of Full House (not Fuller House). Other acting credits include Brie Larson's directorial debut, Unicorn Store, The UCB Show, The Hotwives of Las Vegas, Burn Notice - where she played a tiny Russian bodyguard - and comedy videos featured on Adult Swim, Collegehumor, and Funny or Die. She has performed her original music all over NYC and LA at venues like Highline Ballroom, Rockwood Music Hall, Bowery Ballroom, Hotel Cafe and the Bootleg Theater. She even played CBGB and The Bitter End by the time they were very corporate and not cool. Fiona has contributed satire, essays, and interviews to Bust Magazine, Reductress, Dame Magazine, The Hairpin, Ravishly, Eater LA, and Medium’s homepage. She has written and performed in thousands of musical and sketch comedy shows at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in Los Angeles and is a proud alum of UCB house teams, Old Flame, Judith, Quick & Funny Musicals and Oh, Brother!. Her one woman show, Paradise Valley, directed by Eva Anderson, was great. Her theatre training includes Circle in the Square Theatre School and The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, thank you very much. Fiona recently co-wrote and co-starred in Voldemort and The Teenage Hogwarts Musical Parody which had a nearly sold-out run at the 2018 Edinburgh Festival Fringe and will make its triumphant return for the 2019 Edinburgh Festival Fringe and a limited run in London. She was named one of the funniest women on Twitter for exactly one day.

******** Succinct quotes about Fiona’s work from some of her writing/comedy faves: “Funny” - Paul Feig (Freaks and Geeks and so many movies) “Brilliant” - Cheryl Strayed (Wild, Tiny Beautiful Things) “Genius” - John Hodgman (Vacationland, The Daily Show)

Drag His Ass: A Fuckboy Treatment Program

Fuckboys have had it good for too long.

For the unenlightened, a fuckboy is a relatively new breed of human, described as "a boy who is a player and is only in a relationship for sex" (source: Urban Dictionary). They've been running rampant around New York City, leaving intelligent, beautiful amazing women in their path of destruction. After years of putting up with fuckboys, and entering fuckboy territory with her own behavior, comedian Mary Beth Barone has had enough. MB will invite her friends to share their various experiences with fuckboys in this stand-up and storytelling exploration. Oh, and we'll probably drag some people in the process ;) Come for the comedy, stay for the healing. Join us for the special LA EDITION of DHA.

Featuring performances from Brendan Scannell, Jamie Loftus, Dewayne Perkins, Maggie Widdoes, Melanie Field, and Blair Socci.

Grown Ass Woman

“Ever been to a wedding where the bridesmaid is so drunk she makes the kind of cringeworthy speech that makes your blood
curdle? That’s Rachel Resnik, only there’s wit and gender equality commentary hidden below the clever veil of Champagne." -The Advertiser, Adelaide Fringe 2019

Tickets ($10): https://www.eventbrite.com/e/grown-ass-woman-tickets-60788883186

What does society think it means to be a grown ass woman? Marriage? Babies...nah-maybe? Nah! Cheese balls? Grown Ass Woman is a sketch comedy show written and performed by Rachel Resnik, featuring a cast of crazy characters. It has toured internationally, and was most recently seen at The Adelaide Fringe Festival where The Advertiser reviewed it as "comedy gold and you'll never look at cheese balls the same again". Want to find out what's up with these cheese balls you've been hearing so much about? Come and watch this show! Rachel is a comedian currently based in Los Angeles, and her work has been seen all over the world. She was the proud recipient of The Julie Goell Scholarship for Eccentric Women from The Celebration Barn Theatre in 2018. Directed by Rui Dun.

“Rachel Resnik is a feisty, funny character sketch comedian, falling into the audience’s funny bones from the start, with skits starring strong willed (grown ass) if not always sensible adult-ing women who are not easily dismissed”-Chuck Moore Reviews, Adelaide Fringe 2019


"Does your show title really need to have the word ass in it?"-Rachel's Grandmother Patricia, New Jersey 2018
