Comedy Show

Coming Out to Dead People at Caveat's Projector Fest

Tuesday, June 27, 2023
9 – 11PM

Join comedian/storyteller Ricky Sim (NY Comedy Festival) in this chaotic and super gay stand-up comedy show about growing up as a gaysian in Queens NY, 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 blow-job, 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)
