Southern Fried Ithaca

Sunday, December 2 at 7:15 PM

Kenneth McLaurin, a North Carolina native, has long gone by the moniker, The Funniest Person You've Never Heard Of. As a southern boy, living in Upstate NY, Kenneth's southern fried outlook on liberalism, conservatism, parenting, marriage, politics, society, and life in general, combined with his infectious energy and affable nature keeps audiences laughing. Life's a joke, find the funny is his life's motto, and everybody will tell you Kenneth has certainly found it! Witty, Clever, Insightful, sometimes Shocking, but always Funny is what you get with Kenneth. Kenneth had his first two plays produced in the Kitchen as part of the One Minute Play Festival and performed a short set in the Theatre after a performance of Brahman/i: A One-Hijra Stand-Up Comedy Show. Hosted by Marissa Rice, and Featuring Keith Hannon.

Running to Places Theatre Company

July 5-14, 2018

A song cycle about moments of decision in our lives, this show will move you. Composer Jason Robert Brown frees himself from the structure of traditional Scene-Scene-Song musicals by creating a series of songs that stand alone as complete mini one-act plays. Journey from the deck of a Spanish sailing ship in 1492 to the North Pole and hear from a disgruntled Mrs. Claus. Stories and music that you’ll never forget.

All seats from $11-15
at Kitchen Theatre Company, 417 MLK Jr St, Ithaca
