And it was GREAT! Brent Weinbach, John Roberts, Jim Gaffigan, and Justice of the Unicorns gave fantastic performances. The heart of the show, however, was made up of Tigers and Monkeys (with lead singer Shonali Bhowmik), Andrea Rosen, Chelsea Peretti, and Heather Lawless (Who, together, are the SHAC in Variety SHAC).
They had standup, they had music, they had video, they had me at hello. It is extremely cool that this show gets put on every month, and I encourage all of you to see a Variety SHAC show as soon as possible: this is an active group and there’s a good chance they’ll get picked up to do bigger things in the near future.
I wish I could offer more concrete examples of how good this show was. All I’ve got is this video they showed, some footage from their previous show at the Knitting Factory, and this awesome photo we took with “the SHAC!” Actually, it’s only the S and the C. Enjoy…
And with that, I need to shave.
