UCB Theater

Writer/performer/musician/comedy-type guy Dave Hill presents “The Dave Hill Explosion,” the show that critics are already calling the most incredible thing that has ever happened in North America. As they say in proctology circles, brace yourself as Dave talks, reads, sings, dances, shows a short film or two, and just sort of touches hearts in general for up to but no longer than 35 minutes straight. Bring the whole family or maybe just someone you’d totally like to bone.

The Jukebox

Karaoke and comedy collide at THE JUKEBOX, a monthly performance series uniting comedians, writers, storytellers and actors around a shared fondness for karaoke. Everyone on the line-up performs something inspired by a song — be it stand-up, a story, or a written piece — then sings that song karaoke. Performers choose their own songs based on the theme for that month’s show; each one is a type of playlist or mixtape, and the theme for this edition is “Home.” Hosted by Steve Heisler, Steve Jacobs and Margaret Lyons.
