“Wacky, often hilarious…Studard’s wit and excellent timing shine through…Recommended!” – Chicago Reader
My friends, TONIGHT is the 2nd to last performance of Small Victories, the first solo show by the terrific Kristen Studard! That means you must get to the Annoyance by 9:30pm or make plans for next Sunday to catch this great show before it’s gone!
But, I’m please to say that you’ll have a bonus opportunity because Kristen’s performance has already earned her a place in the upcoming Just For Laughs Chicago comedy festival! Catch her in Alone: Chicago’s Best Solo Acts, a showcase of individual performers being held at The Playground Theater.
Small Victories: An Unflattering Vanity Project
With a penchant for self-disclosure and an eye for the absurd, Kristen Studard’s solo show sheds a hilarious and often harsh light on the lies we tell ourselves to get through the day. The versatile Studard, winner of the 2007 comedy talent competition Impress These Apes, takes the spotlight once again with unique characters that share secrets, fears and sexual confessions. Everyday household objects cry out their inner thoughts, a Hungry Hungry Hippo contemplates the loss of his appetite, and a girl scout invokes eugenics in a dog adoption debate. The show’s memorable climax, featuring a lustful bee wooing a lonely house-flower, will give you a new respect for pollination.
Written and performed by Kristen Studard. Directed by Kate Duffy.
Sundays @ 9:30pm through June 13.
The Annoyance Theatre & Bar, 4830 N Broadway (just north of Lawrence Ave).
$10 tickets are available at 773.561.4665 or online at TheAnnoyance.com.
