The Anxiety Show
Time: 8:00pm - 9:30pm
There are wonderful people in this world who grew up with the perfect amount of emotional nurturance, who live simple lives, have excellent boundaries, and have managed to keep an even keel despite a distorted society. These people cannot understand why anyone would act irrationally, especially when they know that what they are doing is not good for them.
This show is not for those people.
THE ANXIETY SHOW, a new dark comedy show started by Megan Phillips (Not Enough, People Suck) explores different mental health disorders each time, as told by comedians who experience them firsthand. A combination of booked acts and open mic to the audience, for maximum sharing. Because better out than in AMIRITE?
Our very first episode, F**k Fat Shaming, sold out in advance, and we are stoked to bring commiseration to TORONTO - it's FRINGE EDITION!! And this one is more variety-style than usual... let's usher in creatively dancing the 'Xieteez away shall we?
Improv by Flux In A Box (Dan Bryan Rosen & Josh Tibbetts)
Sketch with Paddy N' Rob (Robert Murphy & Paddy MacDonald)
The music stylingz of Jordan Armstrong
The triumphant return of Janet Davidson!
...and more to be announced! Also YOU!
Hosted by yours truly, Megan "can we ever be truly ourselves" Phillips!
This is a STACKED show, so we will do an open mic at the end if there is time. BRING YOUR STORIES - THEY MATTER.
Come laugh away the darkness with us, because we're in this together. Ugh.
Tickets: $12 in advance / $15 at the door
