Kelly Cash

Friday, January 5 @ 10:30pm $8

UNDER St. Marks (94 St. Marks Place)

Kelly Cash wanders a waste of desert sands; a shadow of time and memory, waiting to lose its passionate intensity. On chosen evenings, when the sun drowns the innocence of the plains in its blood-dimmed tide and the darkness draws cold and taut across the tired throats of hungry coyotes and worn ranchers, Kelly Cash rides in from the west, a vexing nightmare, with but a lone purpose: to perform the improv comedy for you and you alone. Kelly Cash is Upright Citizens Brigade improvisers Ken Beck, Corey Brown, Sean Casey, Maelle Doliveux, Rocco Marrongelli, Jeff Miller, and Johnna Scrabis.

Recorded only on iPhones and a 10-year-old Sony handicam, this fast-paced trash heap of a show features the best sketch, stand up, hammer giveaways and musicians from the big apple and beyond. It's like The Muppet Show, but there aren't any puppets and everyone is drunk.

New York Madness

The Kraine Theater (85 East 4th Street)

NY Madness is a raw and unpredictable show of short plays by an ensemble of playwrights presented fully staged with scripts in hand.
