Sunday July 10 Beth Lapides hosts UnCabaret with comedy world luminaries and story spinning celebrities Julia Sweeney, Sam Pancake, Oscar Nunez, Laurie Kilmartin, Alison Arngrim and Selene Luna. Plus musical guest Lucy Peru.
- Julia Sweeney Best known for her four seasons on “Saturday Night Live”, but most loved by us for her highly acclaimed, hilarious and poignant Grammy-nominated God Said, Ha! which she developed largely in weekly performances at UnCabaret. She’s also an author (If It’s Not One Thing, It’s Your Mother), writer (Sex & the City, Desperate Housewives), actor and voice artist. Thrilled to have her back on our stage. Listen to her on our podcast Life And Beth!
- Sam Pancake Comedician. Appalachian Gentleman. Self-proclaimed delight. Sam’s stream of conscious storytelling is just the kind of refreshment we need this summer. If you recognize his lobveable face it might be from Curb Your Enthusiasm, Friends, Will & Grace or Where the Bears Are. Or maybe from his stage shows with pal Drew Droege. Or your dreams!
- Oscar Nunez Best known for his recurring role as Oscar on The Office he has also been hilarious in Curb Your Enthusiasm, Comedy Bang! Bang!, Reno 911! and Benched. His roots are as a writer and improv performer The Groundlings.
- Laurie Kilmartin spent her first 10 years as a standup in San Francisco, the second 10 in NYC. She now and now lives in LA where she is hilarious on stage and writing for CONAN. Her book, Shitty Mom, was a NY Times bestseller and her soon to be released comedy special is called 45 Jokes About My Dead Dad.
- Alison Arngrim New York Times Best Selling author of Confessions of A Prairie Bitch: How I Survived Nellie Oleson and Learned to Love Being Hated, Alison is best known to viewers world-wide for her portrayal of the incredibly nasty Nellie Oleson on the much loved, long running hit television series Little House On The Prairie and continues to thrill in her film, television and stage appearances. We are very excited to have this firecracker make her UnCabaret debut.
- Selene Luna at 3’10″, is a small package with very big presence. An original member of theVelvet Hammer Burlesque, Luna tours internationally and performs regularly with the undisputed Queen of Burlesque, Dita Von Teese. Luna is probably best known for her role in My Bloody Valentine 3D, and her role as Margaret Cho‘s assistant in Vh1′s The Cho Show. Her most recent one person show is Born to Be Alive. And she can be seen on our UnCabaret Amazon series.
- Lucy Peru Influenced by Joni Mitchell’s Blue, Pina Bausch, Mark Rothko and Laurie Anderson, Lucy captures snapshots of moments that would have otherwise, it seems, gone unnoticed. It’s as if everything were turned on its side, allowing views past the familiar, with every song a report from the field.
