Funny Little Stories About Big Disappointments
Yes, It’s Okay to Laugh at Our Pain
FEB 2, WED 7:30PM, doors open at 7PM
Tickets $12-$15 (members $7-$10)
The February WORDS FIRST show features funny little stories about big disappointments! The line-up includes a comedy about suicide, a sad-sack story of a has-been showgirl, a film actor who wishes he even “made it” enough in the first place to be a has-been, and the adventures of a young Vietnamese immigrant confronting the bible-thumpers of Orange County. This month, we’re basically saying, yes, it’s okay to laugh at our pain.
WORDS FIRST is a fresh series featuring a rotating cast of Bay Area solo stars. Each show features a dynamic line-up of four short pieces, written and performed by the solo artists themselves. Every month WORDS FIRST brings together top-rate talent under one tent for a night of comedy, drama, and everything in between. Join us on the first Wednesday of every month as the finest solo performers, comics, and storytellers take the CounterPULSE stage.
