UNCAB IS COMEDY DTLA
hi guys. Sometimes I think about closing UnCabaret because how many times and in how many different ways can I say hey IT’S A REALLY GREAT LINEUP ON SUNDAY! And then I think about what a great line up it is and how the energies that are the people in the poster will magically come together to create a particular one time only energy with the crowd and how that live experience FEELS SO GOOD. I think about the words, the laughs, the music, the hugs, the excellence, the creative juice, the light and then – as much as I don’t love promoting and figuring out how else to communicate that THIS WEEK IS SPECIAL – I do it. Because that is how much I love the Sunday night part of it. So tomorrow I will tell you why each of these people is beloved. For now let me assure you that if you get your tickets IN ADVANCE you will get to look forward to the show for days, and the anticipation of laughing doubles the health benefits of laughing, which are many. Plus of course the relaxing feeling of knowing you can stay home on Saturday night if you want to, because you will be going out on Sunday night.
come for the comedy stay for the hugs. xo Beth
