Same same is an absurdist variety show that randomly occurs through the year on the same numerical day as the numerical month. For example… We are going to get whacky on 6/6 which is the 6th day of the 6th month of the year. 

This is a semi-curated experience where performers loosely riff on an idea for 10 mins or less!

If there is space available during the night of, walk-ins to perform are welcome.

This month’s co-curator is Jane Foley.
This month’s theme is “sports”.

Let’s get scared.

This event is hosted by Mike Stasny

Bio

Mike Stasny

Mike Stasny is an installation artist, performance artist, and sculptor from the midwest currently working out of Atlanta. He primarily works with raw building materials and broken furniture converting them into “creatures” inspired by natural history museums, sci-fi, and his grandfather - an eccentric taxidermist whom let Mike play in his basement with numerous dead things. His most notorious work to date is “what what in the butt” - a youtube viral video that conflates homosexuality, blackness, and religion into an absurd / escapist cartoon like universe. On occasion, he provides “MUSIC YOU NEED” for art related events.
