Event description
FOIA Love is a comedy show about public records, featuring an award-winning bluegrass band for a complete night of hilarious entertainment.

About this Event

One night only! Great comedy and incredible bluegrass music.

This is unlike any comedy show you've seen. All the humor is inspired by actual, strange public documents, such as: FCC complaints about Big Bang Theory being too violent, FBI profiles of sports stars, and creative immigration applications.

The band includes one of this generation's most influential fiddlers Brittany Haas, IBMA-winning banjo player Bennett Sullivan, Austin Alfano, Nick Conte, and Maddie Witler (Lonely Heartstring Band) on mandolin.

Come for the bluegrass, stay for the laughs.

Or come for the laughs, and be pleasantly surprised by the music.

FAQ

Why comedy AND bluegrass?

Though we LOVE public records, even we know it's not a great idea to talk about them for 90 minutes straight. So we've assembled incredible musicians to make this a complete night of entertainment.

Is this really a comedy show about the Freedom of Information Act? That sounds....unusual.

Absolutely. We're nerds for public records, and we are comedy writers in New York. This show combines those two passions.

I like the bluegrass but know nothing about public records. Is this show for me?

Definitely. The musical line-up is incredible, so you'll be happy. And you'll also enjoy the public records part of the show. It's funny, and you may learn something you didn't know before.

Can I bring my children?

The public record does contain several references to adult topics (Americans are naughty, you know?), so keep that in mind. They'll enjoy the music, but the topical stuff may go over their head.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No.

Who is the host?

Curtis Raye has spent time in Washington DC, New York City, and working on a presidential campaign in Iowa. He's observed the inherent comedy in public records. School board meetings, court testimony, and even White House menus are treasure troves of human folly. And he has assembled the most absurd ones in a tightly packed 90 minute live evening of comedy and bluegrass.
