Tragic Girl - The PIT Loft
June 18, 2019 - New York

She sings Miley Cyrus songs out loud in H&M hoping she'll get "discovered." She FaceTimes her Aunt Shelley in the rest stop bathroom. She runs to pilates class eating a handful of refried beans. She's a Tragic Girl and you're stuck with her on the L train. Tragic Girl: a comedy show about the most cringe-worthy among us. Written and performed by Sarah McKinley. Sarah McKinley’s award-winning cast of playful, absurd characters make you feel like you’re at a slumber party with the friend your parents disapprove of. A little mischievous and a lot of fun, Sarah will leave your face sore with laughter and your eyes shining with deviousness. Credits: Montreal Sketchfest (Top 10 Best of the Fest 2018), Seattle Sketchfest (Winner - Favorite New Sketch 2017), Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival, Portland Sketchfest, Bumbershoot. Tuesday, June 18th @ 9:30pm The PIT Loft $10 Runtime: 45 minutes Tickets:

Magnet Mixer - Magnet Theater
June 19, 2019 - New York

Magnet students past and present join improvisers from all the world over and non-improvisers who just want to play, forming rare and wonderful one-night-only teams.

Everyone Is Sad: A Stand-Up Show - Magnet Theater
June 20, 2019 - New York

"Everyone Is Sad" is a stand-up show for comedic performers who are relatively new to stand-up. These performers may appear happy doing improv, sketch, and musical improv--but they are all very tormented and sad and want to stand alone on stage. The host, Perri Gross, has been sad for over 6 years doing stand-up and improv in various stages and basements in NYC. She is a writer for Reductress, The Higgs Weldon, and is also a performer at the Magnet Theater. She has cried on every street corner in Manhattan.
