UnCabaret is story based standup comedy and the music that inspires us. This Sunday, April 9 Beth Lapides hosts a stellar posse of particularly talented standup comedians and one very special young musical genius. When we say UnCabaret is storybased stand-up comedy we mean it is neither a storytelling show nor a straight ahead standup show. UnCabaret is a fusion, a hybrid. The unicorn in captivity. Or maybe 6 unicorns in captivity combining to create one magical night of yay! Storybased standup. bet there and catch the vibe.
