February 2, 8-10 PM

Say Wha?! Readings of Deliciously Rotten Writing

Cottage Bistro, 4468 Main Street

Have you ever read a poorly written novel and thought to yourself, who publishes this crap? Or come across a hilariously out of date self-help book in a thrift store? Perhaps you flipped through Sarah Palin’s/ Justin Beiber’s/ R. Kelly’s etc. autobiography and guffawed at her/his life story. Well, that’s what Say Wha?! is all about.

Funny people reading from terrible books.
$10 at the door

Hosted by Sara Bynoe
Featuring:
Eric Fell – You know him from Critical Hit Show, The Gentlemen Hecklers and more
LeeAnn Keple – Laugh Riot Grrls Comedy, stand up comedian
Jacob Samuel – New Yorker cartoonist, host of Teenage Dirtbag
Michael John Unger – Co-founder of Nerd Night Vancouver

Georgia Straight:
“But is it real comedy? It most certainly is. People love to laugh and there are many routes to arrive at that destination. Is it traditional? It most certainly is not. It’s not what the average person envisions when they think of comedy. But regular shows would kill for these kinds of laughs.”

VanCityBuzz:
“At $10 at the door, Say Wha?! is a steal for a great night out.”

Crashers

The Emerald, 555 Gore

$5 or FREE if you ‘audition’*

A comedic take on General Auditions.

Actors usually go through a process with a theatre company called “general auditions” where they present one or two contrasting monologues for a director or two. Finding audition pieces sucks. Over the years you may have come across texts that you wished you could do for an audition but never had the guts to … until now.

Maybe you will perform a monologue from insane YouTube comments, maybe you’ll share a tirade from a reality TV show, perhaps someone will perform a monologue from the movie Troll 2. Who knows what will happen?!

The first time we did this show people auditioned with song lyrics (Girl Named Sue and Single Ladies), reality TV (Tyra Banks on ANTM) and famous YouTube videos (that one where a woman yells at a bear eating her kayak).

Enjoy a ridiculous night of acting, comedy, and theatre.

*Note: audition pieces should be 2 minutes or less. Feel free to prepare two contrasting pieces to showcase your range.

 

I’m Here All Week

I’m hosting/ producing two shows this week and telling a story at another. Come check out the fun.

Whatever happens, you know it will be warm and funny and a lipstick of a good time show party. Plus half price cocktails, so how can you go wrong?

Bynoe and Hahn can’t wait.

My Life and Auditions

Me in everyday life

I like attention

Me at the audition

I'm awkward

Me after the audition

What's wrong with me clueless

 

Remind me, why it is I want to be an actor?

Oh right, I’d like to get paid to perform. How about this? Why don’t you tell your friends to come to my Say Wha?! show on Dec 19?
