Adults Embracing Failure

There's a lot happening this weekend. Friday night alone there are at least four shows I recommend you try to see. If you can't make it to all of them, plan out your Friday night activities for the next few weeks to see how many you can attend. But you'd better plan well, some of these shows won't be available for much longer ...

Adults Embracing Failure
Royal George Theatre
Friday at 8 p.m.

Lindy Voeltner and Josh Lanzet have put together such a winning show that it has been extended another two weeks. However, they continue to sell out week after week, so grab tickets while they still last. Adults Embracing Failure is a show all about the highs and lows of relationships. Let's be honest, we know when we look back and reflect, some pretty funny stuff has happened in all of our relationships, so expect to have a number of "oh, yeah, I know what that's like" moments during this show.

Phyllis and Moral Hazard
Friday at 8 p.m. 

I absolutely loved Moral Hazard during their first run and now they are joined be the beautiful, hilarious and wickedly talented Brianna Baker in her one-woman show, Phyllis. If you haven't seen this yet, don't miss it - this is your last chance.  


Hold On to Your Butts
Stage 773
Friday at 8 p.m.

Sketch comedy group, Shanna's Mom, is back at it with a brand new sketch show. The show only has a limited run at Stage 773, starting this Friday and running until August 15th, so catch it while you can. Shanna's Mom does a beautiful job of calling out the truths of our daily lives and shining a comedic spotlight on them. Coupled with seven very talented and funny individuals, this show is guaranteed to be a knockout. As a reference, here's how I felt about their last show. 


Give Me 500
The Playground Theater
Friday and Saturday 

This is a comedy showdown, bringing in some of the best improvisers and comedians in the city to do five minutes of their funniest material. The initial round will start Friday night, shows will be all day Saturday with the finals being Saturday night. If you're looking for a "variety" evening of comedy, this would be it.
