Groomed for Success and Erin Markey will take turns trotting out short comedic sets of original characters and material. From obvious jokes to creepy and innovative performance art, there will be plenty to make you laugh and scratch your face. Tongue-in-cheek jabs at estrogen comedy, real conversations of brohams repeated, silver fox gay men worshipped, fresh show tunes and intentional nudity will all make the stage at I DESERVE THIS.
When: Wednesday through Saturday, August 26th to 29th, 8:00 p.m.
WHO ARE YOU?
Groomed for Success! Beth Lisick and Tara Jepsen have been collaborating in a mostly comedic way for over ten years. They have performed their super maxi comedy in an exhaustive list of venues and events, including the first Homo-a-Gogo in Olympia, WA, where they purported to think they were opening for Kate Clinton instead of Kate Bornstein. They most recently appeared in SF Sketchfest 2009, at Fabulosa Festival in Guerneville, CA, and at New York City's Dixon Place with Dynasty Handbag. Their award-winning short Diving for Pearls was removed from YouTube for an unknown offense, possibly nudity. It now appears on BlipTV (http://blip.tv/file/2428930).
