New York: Go See “Mary Houlihan: Live ‘N’ Good!”
Mary Houlihan is a stand-up, a comedy writer, and a visual artist whose work manages a singular tone that’s somehow subtle, nostalgic, and extremely silly at once. She’s the co-host of the glorious Cartoon Monsoon, as well as a writer and animator for Saturday Morning(ish) Cartoons on Comedy Central and a writer/performer on The Special Without Brett Davis on public access. She played a Lana Del Rey in the “Lana Del Race for the Cure” segment on Billy on the Street.
The show presupposes that the Houlihan character has written the one-woman show script of the century, consisting of sketches, songs, and character bits, but her attempts at performing the show are interrupted by villains.
“Mary Houlihan: Live ‘N’ Good” is Thursday, September 10th at Union Hall. Doors open at 8 and the show is at 8:30. You can buy tickets to the show here and read her tweets here.
