Join Jade Sylvan, the night’s special guest host, for an early-bird workshop at the Cantab Lounge before the show. Jade will be offering a workshop called “You’ll Laugh! You’ll Cry! The Art of Funny-Sad.” From the workshop leader:
“William Blake wrote, ‘Excessive sorrow laughs. Excessive joy weeps.’ In this workshop, we’ll look at the fine line between funny and sad and explore how and when to cross it, blur it, balance on it, and snap it in two.”
Doors open at 5:30 for workshop participants only: the workshop runs from 6:00 to 7:00. Cover charge is $5, which includes admission to the evening show. The venue is 18+ and a photo ID is required.
