One Woman Show! 4/4 at The Peoples Improv Theater! 7:00PM

Not mine, but the hilarious Katie Hartman!
(i will be making a special appearance!) 

An onion is like a human: thin skinned layers that, when cut, slowly ooze their stinky sticky insides. 

Or rather, a human is like an onion: layers of misconception and ignorance are peeled back to reveal that meaty core of feces and blood. 

Or maybe you just take off a sweater cause it's hot inside your office. 

Katie Hartman’s character show is directed by Daniel Pettrow.

Lady Sitcom heading to the comedy stage!

TMZ Style Interview!

I was the TMZ style interviewer that is! I got to put on too much makeup and stalk an actor until he spoke to me about "the controversy!"

I had the pleasure of working with my favorite quadruple threatShubhra Prakash, Producer / Director / Writer / Actor of  Hypokrit Theatre Company, Random Fox Productions and lots of other great companies.

Shubhra is creating an interactive shortfilm / interactive video game! Crazy, right?!

This project will be entered into a new competition created by the entertainment company Interlude with the theme of THE CHALLENGE OF DIVERSITY in collaboration with a little film festival you may have heard of, Tribeca Film Fesitval and another great company, Games for Change, "Catalyzing Social Impact Through Digital Games".

Interlude's platform for interactive storytelling is changing the way people meaningfully connect to media. We're collaborating with Games for Change to spark your creativity with this challenge: create an interactive series that discusses the opportunities, difficulties, and complexities of living in the most diverse country on Earth and is made with Treehouse, Interlude's self authoring platform.

Be on the lookout for updates on this project and until then, keep your fingers crossed and dot your i's with hearts! 

Storytelling show October 24th (FREE)

For the past month I have been honing my storytelling skills at the Magnet Theater with 20x Moth storySLAM winner and all around nice guy, Adam Wade.

Come spend an evening with me as I share with you a story from the time that I lived in Los Angeles.

I will be joined by a wonderfully diverse group of classmates, who each have unique and heart felt stories to tell. You will laugh, probably cry and definitely feel some sort of feelings.

A bottle full of laughter and fun is what it was!

Below are a few shots from the production of A BOTTLE OF VODKA which was produced by Manhattan Theatre Source as a part of the 15th year anniversary of EstroGenius Festival

If it isn't obvious from the photos, this was a dark comedy.

See... hilarious!

NCT is closing it's current home 9/27

Last Show September 27th @ 7:30

National Comedy Theare-NY, the improv theater I have called my home for the last 3.5 years will be shutting it's current doors for good on 9/27/14.
I will be performing in the 7:30 show and then celebrating and watching as a fan for the 9:45 show.  It will be a very fun night and I would love to see as many of you as possible even if it's just for celebratory beer and popcorn

These last few shows are guaranteed to sell out fast, so be sure and get your tickets HERE

"After 10 years in our beautiful theatre, which we designed and built, our wonderful landlords have decided to double the rent, which means that we will be vacating our space at the end of this month.

While we are certainly heartbroken to be leaving our home for the past decade, with more than 2000 shows performed here, we couldn't be prouder of what we have accomplished over that time.  There have been few shows in Broadway or off-Broadway history that have been performed that many times, and we owe so much to our loyal fans who kept returning year after year to share the fun with us.

We are currently hunting for a new theatre location in Manhattan, and hopefully we will be able to reopen sometime during 2015.

In the meantime, this month is your last chance to see the amazing National Comedy Theatre perform our public shows in NYC.

We will, of course, continue to perform our private and road shows,
and our San Diego and Phoenix operations are still going strong,
but sadly we won't be able to see you at our theatre on 36th St.
after September 27th.

We sincerely hope to see many of you at our final performances this month. There's only 16 more performances left and we look forward to seeing you there and having a chance to take this out with a bang.

Our final shows are this month, every Friday and Saturday night at
7:30 & 9:45 p.m.  Tickets can be purchased here.

Thank you so much for your loyalty and support over the past 10 years of our historic run.

Best wishes-
The Cast and Staff of the
National Comedy Theatre

Manhattan Theatre Source’s EstroGenius Festival, an annual celebration of female voices, is one of New York City’s largest women’s arts festivals.

Founded by Fiona Jones in 2000, the festival debuted with a program of 10 short plays and music. Since then, it has grown into a multi-week event including short plays, solo shows, teen performances, visual art, and dance. In past years, we’ve also had stand-up comedy, live music, fundraisers for African girls’ education, and full-day networking events with panels and workshops.
I hope to see you there! - traci
