Part catharsis, part circus, total chaos: a comedy show about grief and loss — at a funeral home!

Within the span of 3 years comedian Ben Wasserman (MTV, VICE) lost his dad, granddad, uncle, and four friends. In his new show Live After Death, Ben blends comedy, clowning, and crowd work as he leads the audience on a hilarious yet moving journey through grief, honoring and celebrating the ones we've lost along the way. Expect vulnerable conversation, juggling, a seance, some dancing -- you'll laugh, you'll cry, it'll be a whole thing!

recommended by The New York Times, Brooklyn Paper, BK Mag, and Ben's mom Ricki!

August 27th opener: Milly Tamarez (Comedy Central, NPR)

Doors 8pm Show 8:30

** Show subject to cancellation if someone dies and the funeral home needs to be used as a funeral home.
