The Dead Dads Club at UCB Chelsea
Apr 24, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm| $5
The Dead Dads Club:
In 2010, Kristen Bartlett and Jason Gore’s dads died within months of each other. Together, they formed The Dead Dads Club–an unstoppable grief-fighting force that is often tough, but occasionally falls apart when “Big Fish” is on HBO.
This is a sketch show about what it’s like to lose a parent and realize that you are going to die, too, and there’s nothing you can do about it.
(But it’s funny. We swear.)
