I Had a Dream… about a different kind of comedy 1/19

I had a dream that comedy could be more fun.

I had a dream that comedians could do new material every time they got on stage.

I had a dream that there could be a place where women were more than welcome to do comedy, where gay comedians, and questioning comedians and off beat comedians and writers who were funny but weren’t actually comedians could feel at home.

I had a dream of a place where sophisticated audiences would feel like the comedy was for them.

Of a place where thinking comedy and emotional comedy were the same.

Where comedians felt like they could take risks.

Where intimacy was valued.

Where stories were told.

Where I actually found the comedy funny.

And then one night I was performing for an audience who thought I was funnier than I was and I asked the the last time they laughed and they said they didn’t laugh much because they were women, and artists, and lesbians, and when they went to comedy clubs the comedians made fun of them. So I told them I would produce a show for them. It would be unhomophobic, unxenophobic, unmysogenistic. It would be UnCabaret.

Some people call it alt comedy. And Sunday we are doing a show in honor of another person who had a dream. A bigger dream.

So in honor of Martin Luther King’s Birthday we are doing a special I Had A Dream Show. Stories and songs of dreams gone awry, come true, dream boys, girls, even actual dreams of the Freudian kind. And of course some Civil Rights!

  6. Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this site.

    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s
    difficult to get that “perfect balance” between usability
    and visual appeal. I must say you have done a excellent job
    with this. Also, the blog loads super quick for me on Internet
    explorer. Exceptional Blog!

    Do you ever run into any browser compatibility issues?

  10. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I
    find this matter to be really something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the
    hang of it!

  11. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much
    about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I
    think that you can do with a few pics to drive the
    message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is excellent blog.
    A fantastic read. I’ll certainly be back.
