Stop Motion Excitement for our Afternoon Bad Date Great Story Spring Fling show This Sunday!


We could not be more excited for our midday Comedy Storytelling show at Gramercy Theatre for the following reasons: 1) Our very 1st Bad Date Great Story show was a post brunch show and it rocked so hard, almost 2 years later, we're still going strong!

2) We're back at the Gramercy Theatre lounge, a location we're thrilled to call home.

3) Our performers this time are going to make you face up to the sky laughing/sigh into rich storytelling glee. We have picked them from going around town to TONS of shows and remembering other performers you guys have told us that you LOVED in the past -- This show's for you after all!

To celebrate our excitement, Kristen Benjamin of datethisnotthat  has made a kickass stop motion just in honor of our Spring Fling show tomorrow, 1pm doors open, Gramercy Theatre.  See you at the show!
