On the Concept of Irony

(with No Reference to Socrates)


"Who wants reality? I can get that for free. That's the whole point. I kind of have to."

Praise for phillip low and Maximum Verbosity


"Writer phillip low is a talented man with a gift for caustic monologues. But he also has a crazed sense of humor..."
-Kansas City Stage

"Liberation through extreme tastelessness may be Low's most powerful self-help prescription. His precursor in this mode is Paul Krassner..."
-Jay Harvey, Upstage (Indianapolis)

"...puts to shame the notion: 'Brevity is the soul of wit.' ...with his offbeat sense of humor, he offers up a desperate cry for common sense for the country, if not the world."
-Tristan Miller, comedian

" accomplished writer and performer with a wonderfully wicked sense of humor...also viciously intelligent and terrifyingly well-read...ranges from sophomoric laughs to incisive political and cultural observations."
-E.J. Bouinatchova, author of Fresh Cut

About the Show


What happens when human folly runs face-first into apocalypse? Stolen placentas, political genies, sad puppies, Elder Gods, cryogenically frozen comedians...welcome to this election year's grotesque anthology of comic horror, with no mention whatsoever of a certain ancient Greek philosopher.



Contains profanity, gunshots, graphic descriptions of violent and sexual acts, and a wildly inappropriate spirit of levity.
