UP NEXT: BLUE HEAVEN COMEDY FESTIVAL at fringearts
4/22/23 opening for Ben Wasserman's Live After Death, Brian Bahe, Brittany Carney
An anonymous, shambling creature is your guide in this comedy meditation on failure and resilience, written and performed by Mary McCool, developed with Jack Tamburri.
Weaving crowd work, chaos magic, and live digital vocal effects, STRESS EXORCIST brings the audience to a vital new kind of healing. In a series of rituals and games, obstacles are lifted and loving your dark side makes magic possible. Ridiculous and meaningful, Mary McCool delivers a monster-drag spectacle of virtuosity in a comedy rite that will literally change your life.
STRESS EXORCIST headlining Helium Comedy Club, Philadelphia 1/4/23
