We’re Skirballing! Storytelling of the funny kind!

March 14th is UnCabaret’s “Say the Word: The New Me” at Skirball Cultural Center. Join Beth Lapides as she hosts this springtime night of comedic storytelling about rebirth and reinvention and of course resistance to rebirth and reinvention!

We’re excited to welcome back Jay Kogen (The Simpsons), Peter Mehlman (Seinfeld), Wendy Liebman (Letterman, HBO) and to welcome to the show for the first time Ian Harvie (Logo) and C. Brian Smith (Vanity Fair).

“Go!” The Jewish Journal. If the Jewish Journal says to, you better!

The Skirball is an extremely beautiful and commodious place to sit and listen to mind and soul expanding, laugh inducing stories.

Alt Comedy Plus Music Equals A Night to Go Out and Get Into 2/23

Beth Lapides enjoys Greg Behrendt so much that she asked him to be her sidekick when she had her radio show. It wasn’t long before he spun off to his own “Mantastic” show and then as the New York Times bestselling author of “He’s Just Not That Into You.” One thing we love about Greg is that whatever he’s into, he’s very into. Clothes, cookies, women, his daughters, love, guitars. He was also just a guest on Oprah’s “Lifeclass.” Greg Behrendt is in Episode 1 of UnCab Amazon.

We don’t need to tell you how funny Cheri Oteri is. She’s recently begun to treat us to her stories at UnCabaret, yay!

Joseph Keckler was the Village Voice’s 2013 Best Downtown NY Performance Artist. He sings opera and is very funny. We are delighted to have him grace our stage with his mesmerizing deliciousness once more before he heads back East.

Also here from NY — yay pilot season! — is Bridey Elliott. Her lovely quirky funniness might have a bit to do with the fact that her dad is Chris Elliott. And her grandfather is Bob Elliott of Bob and Ray. This is her first UnCab and we are very much looking forward to it.

It seems like a long time since we’ve had a visit from our friend Greg Fitzsimmons, who’s been out on the road. We are glad to have him in L.A. for a minute because he goes all the way and then a little farther and that makes us laugh. Check him out on Episode 3 of UnCab Amazon.

The Strands just sent us this new picture of them on the stairs. I bet that’s because they intend their music to take you higher!

Alt comedy – plus magic & music on Alt Saturday – which is to say 3 Day Weekend Sunday!

People ask us why we don’t move UnCab to Saturdays.

A few reasons…There is something so wonderfully perfect about Sunday for live shows. Especially for the offbeat delight of UnCabaret’s brilliant alt comedy. A vibe of depth, a secret pocket of fun, a freedom. Access to something that the noise of Saturday doesn’t allow.

Plus NO TRAFFIC on the way to the show! (Very easy to get to – Beverly to Temple to First if you are coming from West Hollywood 15 minutes).

But the price we pay is that Sunday is a work night so lots of people can’t come. Which means we gleefully look forward to three day weekends which this Sunday is! The best of Saturday and the best of Sunday all rolled into one! Which we love. Yes we heart three day weekends. Three Day weekends are our Valentine!

This 3 Day weekend – President’s Day – 3 delights – comedy, music and (don’t be scared Justin is really great) magic! Beth and Mitch welcome:  Sam Pancake (Arrested Development) Justin Willman (Cupcake Wars), Miss Coco Peru (Trick), Kira Soltanovich (Tonight Show), and Del Shores (Sordid Lives).

If you have never seen Justin Willman he does for Magic what UnCabaret did for comedy. Turns it inside out, takes every thing old fashioned out of it and yet is as sweet as the cupcakes in Cupcake Wars which he hosts.

Miss Coco Peru is really a one of a kind, a singular talent! According to Lily Tomlin, the last of the great raconteurs! The title of Miss Coco’s show says a lot about her – She’s Got Balls!

Sam Pancake is a character actor whose face you will recognize. But at UnCab he is a force of nature. His stream of consciousness story telling is so much fun to watch, a thrilling surprising ride, with just enoug sweetness to make the bitter delicious.

Kira Soltanovich is one of the most down to earth, natural storytellers working in comedy right now. Do not miss her.=

Del Shores is not just a writer and performer but an entire industry. He has created a world of characters and projects for them to live in on stage and screen. Movies, plays, TV – Del has found a way to talk from his sassy heart in every medium.

Plus Denise Fraser turning the beat around.

See you Sunday! Happy Valentines Day we love you!
