    Comedy

    Arielle Norman

    She's been referred to as the “Wario version of Ellen” and “South Park brought to life as a lesbian.” We can attest that both of those descriptions are as true as they are clever. And, ICYMI, they translate to this: Arielle Norman is really – no, really – fucking funny, people. Bonus: Pat Sirois and friends open.
    Fri., Oct. 12, 9 & 11pm. $10.

Featuring Mical Trejo, as directed by Ken Webster for Hyde Park Theatre. Note: When this excellent show debuted a few years ago, Robert Faires interviewed the playwright right here and – this just in!reviews the current show.
