THE BEST OF ST. LOUIS
The “World’s Greatest” Comedians: World Premiere brings together the best up-and-coming stand-up comedians in St. Louis for a laugh-packed, stripped-down showcase covering subject matter ranging from the silly to the subversive
[Duet, Fri 9pm, SAT 2:30pm, SUN 7:30pm, $5. Adults, Adult Content.]
Siobaan O’Laughlin, Brooklyn NY
One woman moves from a commune to New York City without shaving…any part of her body. As she struggles to fit into the world around her, she weaves in the stories of several different women she’s interviewed on their adventures in shaving, waxing, and everything (or nothing) in between. Natural Novice is a comedic human study of the implications of a woman not shaving her armpits, but also a feminist critique of the social structures of aesthetic, and how a woman defines herself, no matter what she looks like. “Charming.”—NYTheatre.com, “Hilarious.”–Maryland Theatre Guide, WINNER: BEST OF THE FEST, Charm City Fringe.

THE NEXT DOG KING
Man walks dog, dog pees and poops. Dog dares to rule them all.
A tale marked with dog urine.
“The Next Dog King” created and performed by Jim Julien. It is a tale told with dog puppets and multimedia (and dog urine) about the death of an old dog and the power struggle that ensues. A young dog, Bolan, finds himself drawn into the fray. His owner, Jim, simply wants to walk the dog around neighborhood but begins to realize he has been given a window into the secret life of dogs.
Comedy, Solo, Puppetry, Performance Art, Multimedia
[Duet, FRI 6pm, SAT 4pm, SUN 4pm, $5. Over 13, Adult Content.]
Daniel Shar, Chicago IL
LAME AND FORTUNE
Lame And Fortune highlights some imagined consequences of (pursuing) notoriety and wealth. Written and performed by Daniel Shar, who has neither of these things and thinks it’s funny when those who do come crashing down spectacularly, this show could reasonably be described as dark, dumb, silly and smart.
[Duet, SAT 6pm, SUN 6p,$5. Adults, Adult Content.]
Erin Renee Roberts, Brooklyn NY
