After a successful one year anniversary in Los Angeles and a sold-out charity benefit in New York City, Worst Ever Productions will present the first monthly run of WORST AUDITION EVER this fall at the Cavern Club in Silverlake - produced by Christine Lakin, Alec Ledd, Daniel A. Miles, and Corri English.
WORST AUDITION EVER is an evening of comedy about a group of artists (actors, directors, dancers, etc.) telling their real stores about the all too familiar audition process. The format is simple - a blank stage with one microphone - making the shared stories truly intimate and personal. For anyone who has ever had an embarrassing moment “putting themselves out there” in the name of art, WORST AUDITION EVER presents a wry and candid evening of some of the most awkward moments in artistic vulnerability – because pain is best served funny and with cocktails.
New artists will participate every month.
Tuesday, September 18's performance will feature Kristen Cummins & Dee Dee Miller (The Mark & Mike Show, Troubled Ambition), Stephen Bienskie (Silence! The Musical, Submissions Only), Kathy Deitch (Wicked), Ross Patterson (FDR: American Badass!), Patrick Bristow (The Groundlings, Ellen), and Jeff Skowron (NCIS, The Burg). Christine Lakin (Silence! The Musical, You Again) will host.
Wednesday, September 19's performance will feature Kristen Cummins & Dee Dee Miller (The Mark & Mike Show, Troubled Ambition), Wyatt Fenner (Bones), Kathy Deitch (Wicked), Hanna LoPatin (writer on Partners, UCB), Rob Nagle (Mad Men, Eli Stone), and Jeff Skowron (NCIS, The Burg). Jeff Hiller (Silence! The Musical, 30 Rock) will host.
WORST AUDITION EVER Plays The Cavern Club Theater at 8 PM on September 18 & 19, October 17 & 18, and November 13 & 14. Doors open at 7:30. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased online and at the door. For tickets and more information, visit www.WorstAuditionEver.com.
Worst Audition Ever was conceived around a circle of friends drinking beer and telling war stories about their artistic lives. The darkly funny, off-the-wall material that ensued is what conceptualized the show. Some of LA’s funniest comedians have graced the stage revealing their awful, hysterical tales. Painfully true, mutually hilarious and completely cathartic, Worst Audition Ever has built an underground following playing small clubs in Los Angeles and building a viral fan base since April 2011.
