Hello! The online entertainment is going strong as we enter the fall season. Still keeping all the shows set at Pay-What-You-Can so anyone who wants to can attend.
Before we get to the show listings I wanted to showcase my friend Rachel Lark’s new music video (which I happen to be featured in). It’s an upbeat dystopian anthem for the times we’re living in. I love the song, video and think Rachel is an amazing artist so give it a watch!

Join your hosts stand-up comedians and noted homosexuals Wonder Dave and Marcus Williams as they try to find out just what is going on in the minds of heterosexual men in SMILF: Straight Men I’d Like to Friend! Each show Wonder Dave and Marcus will gather some straight male performers to objectify….er… showcase! Then we’ll quiz these fine men to test their gay knowledge.
BUT because we have no interest in running a show that only showcases Straight men we’ll also be bringing you an amazing amazing headliner! This month we’re thrilled to bring you Ophira Eisenberg!
