UnCabaret: We Make Sundays Better

comedy. music, soul, dtla SundaysIt’s funny about Sundays. UnCabaret didn’t start out there. We were at various venues on various nights. But back in the day, when Jean Pierre called me to do something at his new club, Luna Park, I suggested doing UnCabaret for 3 Sundays. We ran for 7 years, from the Sunday they opened until the Sunday they closed. Kind of the Gilligan’s Island of comedy shows.

And then we ran Sundays at other venues including The HBO Workspace, The Knitting Factory and Mbar. After that I took a break. And though it was a much needed, Sundays always seemed, well, not quite right. Am grateful to have revived UnSundays. To have a beautiful room and an amazing team to convene in and with. The past few years of Sundays at the corner of First and Hope have been revolutionary, revelational, and filled with enormous amounts of revelry.

It is, of course, not essential that UnCab is on Sundays. We’ve done plenty of shows on other nights. But Sundays are the pivot point, one week turns into the next. Sundays help shape the way I see the week that was and help shape the energy I go into next week with. I love the feeling of creating that uplifted energy and sharing it.

But for right now, happy Tuesday. Have the best week that is available to you this week. And maybe even a little better, knowing that on Sunday, all things are possible.

Podcast Taping: Wednesday, February 17, 2016! Beth Lapides in conversation with the hilarious Julie Goldman (The People’s Couch, Bravo; My Big Gay Sketch Show, Logo; The Mindy Project etc).

“Charmingly Deviant!” The Village Voice

“Kick Ass!” New York Press

“A Master of irreverent cultural criticism, she will have you roaring so hard that you reach the edge of tears and beyond. Call it feminist or Lesbian humor if you want, but the great thing about Goldman is she transcends all those terms and shows us that we’re all in this together. She is an absolute Must See!” Provincetown Banner
