STAND-UP COMEDY!

COMEDIAN BOBBY COLLINS
Friday, October 19 – 7:30PM

Stand-Up! Comedian, Bobby Collins returns to CityStage -  Bobby is a storyteller. His heartfelt humor engages audiences with a hilarious blend of characterizations and spot-on observations to which everyone can relate. Unlike many comedians, who rely solely on the clever use of words and ideas to engage an audience, from the moment Bobby hits the stage, he lassoes the crowd and pulls them even closer to him while they cry from laughter. Even the hardcore "I usually don't laugh at comedian" types, cannot help but surrender to his energy and visual antics targeted directly at tickling their funny bones. It also doesn't hurt that Bobby is more eye candy than Quasimoto. Bobby holds up a mirror to each of us and helps us not take ourselves too seriously.  Tickets: $34

THEATRE – GIRLS NIGHT OUT!

ONE WOMAN SEX AND THE CITY – A PARODY OF LOVE, FRIENDSHIPS AND SHOES

Thursday & Friday, November 1 – 7:30PM

This loving tribute and send-up takes audiences through a laughter-infused version of all six seasons of the beloved show.  TJ Dawe – (Director and co-creator of One Man Star Wars Trilogy, One Man Lord of the Rings and PostSecret: The Show) has comedic whirling dervish Kerry Ipema (PostSecret: The Show) bringing all our favorite characters to life as they brunch, banter, argue, support each other and swoon over men and Manolos. There will be puns, cosmopolitans and audience participation. For anyone who remembers the naked dress, the tantric sex demonstration, the post-it note, and “he’s just not that into you,” One Woman Sex and The City - A Parody of Love, Friendships and Shoes will provide a great reminder of why this series and its characters have stayed so firmly in women’s hearts and minds.
