Tig Notaro Presents: Krullapalooza
**_Tig Notaro at the Laugh Factory_**
_Warning: contains not the worst word in the world, but maybe the worst thing you could say to a stranger_
Five of the heaviest weights in comedy today join forces for a good cause in Krullapalooza, dedicated to the memory of the late Suzanne Krull and raising funds for Survivors’ Truths. Proceeds will particularly benefit the TransYouth Speaks, which helps to give transgender youth both mentorship and a platform for action and advocacy.
- Tig Notaro: A regular on Conan and a recurring character on The Sarah Silverman Program, Notaro rocketed to national attention in 2012 when she opened a set at the Largo with the words “Good evening. Hello. I have cancer. How are you?”—an act Louis C.K. called one of only a few “truly great, masterful standup sets” he’d ever seen.
- Zach Galifianakis: He’s probably best known for playing Alan Garner in The Hangover trilogy, but on his own turf Galifianakis’s act is willfully uncomfortable and hyperbolically absurd. On his show Between Two Ferns, he’s asked the biggest celebrities some of the hardest questions they’ll ever face, such as when he asked Jon Hamm if he ever considered changing his name to “Stuart Turkeylink.”
- Reggie Watts: Close your eyes, and you might think there are six or seven Reggie Wattses onstage. Working with a loop box, a firm command of all musical styles, and a larger vocal range than some pianos, Watts creates freeform a capella tracks that are both ridiculous and thoughtful.
- Patton Oswalt: Oswalt is as likely to aim his pitch-black wit at organized religion as he is to explore the third tier players on the X-Men’s roster. Gigs such as The King of Queens, Ratatouille, and dozens of film and television roles have made him a comic who needs no introduction but who hasn’t sacrificed his particular style.
- Ian Harvie: One of the world’s first high-profile transgender standup comics, Harvie has performed on the Logo Network’s OutLaugh Comedy Festival and on Comics Unleashed on ABC, and has been hosting his own self-produced talk show from a Los Angeles nightclub since 2007. He’s also worked with LGBTQ icons such as Margaret Cho, Jane Lynch, and Alan Cumming.
On the outside, The Wiltern’s towering neon sign and grand marquee stand as a striking reminder of once-prevalent art-deco cinemas and theaters. On the inside, the theater is an artistic marvel: the ceilings of its hallways are coated in lush, floral murals that are illuminated by elegant chandeliers. The swirls of oranges and reds on the ceiling of the theater itself bring to mind the sights of autumn, and the angular, metallic installation its surrounds resembles the crown of the Statue of Liberty as it keeps a lookout for bald eagles in the audience.
