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!

Our very dreamy line-up includes Sam Pancake, Byron Bowers, Dave Ross and Karen Kilgariff and Chris Woods.

Get tickets here.

Alt Comedy on an Alt Holiday! Thanksgivunakah!

Thanksgiving + Hanukah = Thanksgivanukah

Comedy + Stories + Music + Inspiration + Mystery + Intimacy = UnCabaret

The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. The + is part of the picture. Connections. Between the performers. Between the writing and the performing. Between the performers and the audience. Between on stage and off. Between one Sunday night and the next.

Here’s the big picture part: Connection is what we are here to learn right now. Environmentally borders are irrelevant. Science tells us that we have biophotons – little quanta of energy bouncing off of me and onto you and off of you onto me and we literally are each other. As well as stardust. And yet we are also uniquely ourselves. We alternate between these two realities. Uniquely ourselves – all one. That is one alternative aspect of UnCabaret’s brand of Alt Comedy!

And so we at UnCabaret are very excited about Thanksgivunakah! A holiday that will certainly be greater than the sum of its potato pancakes and stuffing. Greater than the sum of cranberries and candles. And yet at the same time still uniquely both Thanksgiving and Hanukah.

And this Sunday we are grateful to have 8 unique flames of our UnCab family creating a menorah of a show:) Beth (that’s me!) and Mitch welcome Rebecca Corry, Drew Droege, James Adomian, Morten Kier, Dan Levy and Hilary Parkin. Plus bonus candles Denise Fraser turning the beat around and Louis Van Taylor saxxing it up!

An awesome way to cap off the wonderful but stressful Thanksgivanukah weekend… tickets here
