A Bit Of Funny Business And A Whole Lot More!
If comedy is your cup of tea (or joe), you won’t want to miss “Coffeehouse of the Absurd”, coming to Ethical Brew on Saturday, October 3, at 8pm, a musical collaboration featuring the comedic wit of skilled troubadour MIKE AGRANOFF and award-winning songwriter/humorist, JOHN FORSTER. In case you are not familiar with John, it is obvious that he fell asleep one too many times as a child listening to his Tom Lehrer albums. This is evidenced by his twisted sense of humor, his delightfully skewed view of the human condition, and his prodigious skills as a pianist. His songs have a knack for taking the plausible but improbable, and leading that to its implausible but inevitable conclusion by way of unlikely rhymes, horrible puns and ironic satire. Together with Mike Agranoff, a returnee to Ethical Brew, this evening of comedy and satire is guaranteed to leave you in stitches! The recipient charity for this show is Autism Speaks, suggested by Mr. Forster who is seeking to raise awareness for this cause that he says has “hugely impacted” his extended family members. Tickets for this zany event are now available through the Society’s website (www.ethicalfocus.org) or on our brand-new, dedicated website, www.ethicalbrew.com. Tickets are $20 online/$25 at the door. Volunteers are always needed — contact Beth or Perry Stein at [email protected] or [email protected].
