Coming up next at Culture Project…
written & performed by Mike Birbiglia
Mike Birbiglia declares that a joke should never end with ‘I’m joking.’ In his all-new comedy, Birbiglia tiptoes hilariously through the minefield that is modern-day joke-telling. Join Mike as he learns that the same jokes that elicit laughter have the power to produce tears, rage, and a whole lot of getting yelled at. Ultimately it’s a show that asks, “How far should we go for the laugh?”

written & performed by Neal Brennan
A writer, director, producer, and stand-up comic, Neal is best known as the Co-Creator of the popular TV series “The Chappelle Show.” This is his New York City theatrical debut.
Using his extensive experience working behind the scenes in the world of comedy, Neal takes the stage alternating between three separate microphones, each giving voice to the various aspects of his life. The first microphone is marked by Neal’s smart and sardonic take on race, gender and contemporary heroes and hypocrites. At the second mic Neal shows his punchy wit, sharing one liners he’s crafted over the years but couldn’t find a home for. With the third and final microphone, Neal shares stories of his personal struggles dealing with everything from depression to relationships. With bracing honesty, he reveals challenges that have shaped who he is today, life as a soloist with shoddy confidence and building a life in the shadow of parental abuse and alcoholism.
Performances begin Feb 23 and run through March 13
Tuesdays – Sundays, 9:30 pm
What’s Happening at Culture Project
What Our Audience is Saying
– New York, New York.
We saw “The Exonerated” today and it was quite compelling. The stories are all true (literally verbatim from interviews) and the actors gave a *superb* performance. The show has been extended until December 2 and I really recommend it.
– Brooklyn NY
Simply put, I don’t think any other theater company in the city does work that is as timely, relevant, and important as the work that Culture Project put on time and time again. They continue to amplify marginalized voices, bring issues to the forefront, and raise the level of dialogue on today’s important issues, through exciting theater, debates, film etc.
If you like a nice mix of politics and art, if you like to consume and be entertained and be given something to think about for days after, then check out Culture Project. I’m so glad they’re back on Bleeker Street where they belong.
