Laraine Newman: The Audition
Laraine Newman wrote The Audition after coming home from a particularly mortifying one…..well, actually, they’re ALL mortifying. She shares these experiences with the audience as she talks about auditioning for Bob Hope. Martin Scorsese, the beginning of The Groundlings and Saturday Night Live. You also get to meet the demons in her head. FUN!
Charles: Moby Alpha
An homage to classic sci-fi and classical literature, Moby Alpha tells the story of a mad captain’s quest for revenge on the amorphous energy cloud that temporarily took his leg. More simply put, Moby Alpha is Moby-Dick in space, but funny.
The show is performed in an entirely dark theater, with the only light emanating from the duo’s custom-built million-color LED space helmets, creating a unique, otherworldly aesthetic. No flashlights required.
