Even if you have nothing left and your life is but a shell, you can still be thankful for something this Thanksgiving: a whole month of great free comedy from Comedy Central Stage.
SEE YOU MADE AN EFFORT
Actress / Writer Annabelle Gurwitch (Dinner and a Movie) and author of Fired! and You Say Tomato, I Say Shut Up, adapts her forth-coming memoir, I SEE YOU MADE AN EFFORT (Blue Rider Press, March 2014) into a wickedly funny new one-woman show. “I so relate to the brilliant and wildly hilarious latest work.” ~ Richard Lewis. Directed by Darren Katz. www.annabellegurwitch.com
BEN SEEDER PRESENTS
In this critically absurd solo performance, Ben Seeder (We Bought a Zoo, i.O. Chicago) presents a series of solo sketches and monologues. Playing a variety of characters he focuses on the awkward tension and emotions that drive families, friends, teachers, co-workers and lovers. Things get really, really weird and really, really funny!
