Art School: A Cross-Genre, Multi-Disciplinary, Post-Conceptual Comedy Show
Art School: A Cross-Genre, Multi-Disciplinary, Post-Conceptual Comedy Show
Join us for the latest exhibition of Art School: A Cross-Genre, Multi-Disciplinary, Post-Conceptual Comedy Show. Hosted by Tim Barnes (Comedy Central), Jordan Mendoza (Comedy Central), and Joanna Solotaroff (HBO’s 2 Dope Queens).

Just like actual art school, this show is all about experimenting. It's a highly-curated, comedy journey that incorporates all kinds of creative mediums: stand-up, storytelling, performance art, dance, magic - we’ve even had a fully immersive art installation!

The show will make you say, "Is it comedy though?" and "Oppressive but, like, in the best way" and "Hmm."

We feature new acts every show and are committed to bringing together the comedic leanings of multiple arts communities.

Loner / Jamie Graham
Loner / Jamie Graham
Jamie Graham is a dancer and physical comedienne based in Brooklyn. She discovered Loner in clown class back in 2016 working with Virginia Scott, and since then Loner keeps coming back into her life. Loner's blue poncho silhouette seems to always be just around the corner. And no matter how many times she says goodbye, people want to see her again. Maybe it's that we're all a little lonely in this town - or we're way too short on alone time so we get it - or we just always want the one who we know is going to leave us - but Loner keeps getting called back (and of course deep down she loves to be missed).

Jamie is one half of dance theater comedy improv duo The Raving Jaynes with the one and only Amy Larimer. Together they have been presented at The PIT, The Tank, Dixon Place, Triskelion Arts, and dance and comedy improv festivals around the world. She also performs regularly in the nightlife scene with Jenny Rocha and The Painted Ladies. She recently joined the cast of Third Rail's immersive dance theater show Then She Fell.
