The Guardian calls it a show about "how a body can make people laugh."

The Comedienne Project - The Standing
November 22, 2017 - New york

Katie Hannigan and Corinne Fisher debuted The Comedienne Project at FringeNYC15. Corinne, the host of the popular anti slut shaming podcast, Guys We Fucked, and Katie, a vehement man hater, both felt themselves falling into the trap of creating material that revolved around men, and our relationships to them. Fisher and Hannigan wanted to break out of their comfort zones and challenge themselves to answer - "What do we think about when we're not thinking about dudes and sex?" And the two created new half hour sets of fresh material on anything and everything BUT men. (turns out mostly food and vampires,) Now at The Standing Room, The Comedienne Project continues as Katie and Corinne invite fellow comics to participate in the challenge. Female and male comics alike perform full sets free of sex, dating and relationship material. Katie and Corinne keep it fresh by ringing a bell if a comic slips up and accidentally brings up butt plugs.

Flynn's mind is both shock and absorber, as spongy and receptive as the suspension in a New York taxicab: pretty soon, you're flying." — Tom Shone, Film Critic, Intelligent Life "Dion Flynn's solo theatrical improvisations are what it would be if Jackson Pollack and James Joyce did comedy." -An audience member named Nick, pressed for comment during a show by Dion. "Dion's solo performance at The PIT is an experience. He takes the audience on the same journey he is going through as he figures out his show/performance art piece/happening.

New York -- Prague, 1912 (the Savoy Café Yiddish Theatre) by Lu Hauser is a comedy based on historic personalities of the Yiddish Theater. A vagabond acting company comes to Prague: it's Jak Lowy and his leading lady, Mme. Trassik. Lowy is a veteran actor who has put stars in her eyes and they are lovers.
