Lunchbox Presents: Solomon’s Last Show


Well, this is a conflict of interest…

Many French schools still have Wednesdays off. Many are changing this. “How can I explain to my son that he can’t watch cartoons on Tuesday nights anymore,” asked one disgruntled French mother, presumably in French.

You might not have Wednesday off but it is the last day of school.

So come see some sketch comedy! It’s my last show in college!

Audition for The 24-Hour “Let’s ‘Beak’ Canary Cancer!” Benefit Concert & Variety Show Telethon: Hour 24


Russell Goldman ’17 writes:

“KGB Presents: The 24-Hour ‘Let’s Beak Canary Cancer!’ Benefit Concert & Variety Show Telethon: Hour 24” is a new theatrical project written and directed by the dream-cream of Solomon Billinkoff ’14 and Russell Goldman ’17.

The show centers around the final hour of a 24-hour public-access telethon to benefit canary cancer. The players in this program include the hosts, the network executives, the wisecracking janitor (with a secret!), and all of the varied disturbed, spectacular, and arousing performers that permeate this very-last-ditch effort.

Bring something funny to show us–a monologue, a joke, an interesting anecdote, whatever you want–but try to be physically active in your presentation. If you can sing, also bring a song. If you can dance, please tell us you can dance in a song. We will have sides for you to choose from at the audition, and we may ask you to do a cold read for a specific part against your will.

  • DATE?: Thursday, January 23rd, and Friday, January 24th
  • TIME?: 4:30-7:30pm
  • PLACE?: Jones Room
