TRUTH IN COMEDY [01.09]

TiC is the mash-up of storytelling, stand-up comedy, and art – where humanity is the muse. It’s a unique experience that’s raw and beautiful. Three individuals will tell a very personal story from their life, aka their truth, where they will be very open, honest, and vulnerable. Afterwards, a comedian will perform a set inspired by the story. At the end of the night, an artist will present a triptych they created inspired by the stories as well. Read more about it here.
