Coming Out to Dead People
6:30 – 8PM
Join comedian/storyteller Ricky Sim (NY Comedy Festival) in this chaotic and super gay stand-up comedy show about growing up as a gaysian immigrant, to coming out to his conservative Chinese-Malaysian mother… just as she’s diagnosed with cancer. Good timing, huh?
Celebrate Pride 2023 with a night of laughter! Combining stand-up and storytelling, Ricky leads you on a hilarious yet heartfelt journey about gay grief, secrets, and tales of awkward but effective oral sex, while exploring the meaning of acceptance, closure, and family love.
“You could see how enthralled the audience was with Ricky’s story and delivery, that you could still hear a pin drop in the theater.” - Ali Farahnakian (The Second City, Saturday Night Live)
“Had me on a whole a** ride of laughter and tears!” - Non Kuramoto (Jaru Jaru)
