Out & In Returns to Kick Off STG's Nights at the Neptune, 6/20
STG's Nights at the Neptune series returns this summer with eight FREE performances at the Neptune Theatre, beginning Friday, June 20th at 8:00 p.m. with Out & In, a stand-up comedy showcase headlined by Guy Branum (Chelsea Lately, Totally Biased, Last Comic Standing). Presented with support by the City of Seattle Department of Neighborhoods and BECU, each artist program embraces the exploration of social issues through art and amplifies the voice of underrepresented artists and communities in the area. Branum will be joined by hometown favorite Solomon Georgio, with Elicia Sanchez, Abbey Drake, Nick Sahoyah and special guests.
A participant in the 2013 Nights at the Neptune, Out & In was an audience favorite that celebrated unique perspectives in Northwest comedy. The show's return is appropriately presented the Friday before Seattle's Pride Week and is a tremendous opportunity for LGBT and allied performers of all styles, backgrounds and experience levels to share their voice with new audiences. Out & In is proud to support the efforts of Gay City Health Project.
