Ben Wasserman’s Live After Death at the Parlor
Presented by Central Baltimore Partnership
Within the span of 3 years, comedian Ben Wasserman lost his dad, granddad, uncle, and four friends. In his new show Live After Death, Ben blends comedy, clowning, and crowd work as he leads the audience on a hilarious yet moving journey through grief, honoring and celebrating the ones we’ve lost along the way. Expect vulnerable conversation, juggling, a seance, and some dancing. You’ll laugh! You’ll cry,! It’ll be a whole f***ing thing!
The evening’s opener is Kim Le with an interactive storytelling piece about dads and complicated relationships (just in time for Father’s Day!)
Enjoy a drink on the house in the basement speakeasy before the show (for those 21 and over only)
DOORS at 7:00; SHOW at 8:00
