  • Lower Level Comedy & KZoo Comedy: Krish Mohan's Empathy On Sale!

Empathy On Sale: Stepping out our bubbles can be hard. Nationally Touring Comedian, Krish Mohan is exploring bubble culture and the current divide in today's political climate. He uses his sharp wit, storytelling and comedy to illustrate how capitalism, identity politics, immigration and misunderstanding progressive ideals has led to unnecessarily splitting us apart. He explores Native American culture, reforming education and western culture's obsession with extremism, war and violence - all of which pushes us further into our bubbles - using satire and comedy to engage dialogue about hot button issues. Find out if he can figure out how we can get out of our bubbles! This show won the "Audience Choice" Award at the 2018 Pittsburgh Fringe Festival!

Super Happy Funtime Burlesque is a Michigan based troupe that defies explanation. Calling itself 'Burlesque' for lack of a better term;SHFB is a genre spanning theatrical rock opera outfit, a sexy and bawdy musical comedy, a mix of Rocky Horror and Saturday Night Live, a night spent on mega doses of Codeine tied to the underside of a roller coaster while a circus monkey roots around in your pants for that missing peanut. SHFB is a nationally touring act, traveling the country in its big red converted school bus, bringing the word of the new musical experience to America.
