Penny Arcade returns to Joe’s Pub after three years of nonstop touring in Europe’s capitols just when the new tide of political correctness threatens to sink radical comedy under the weight of New York City’s suburbanization. The international performance legend whose name has become globally synonymous with “Downtown New York Art” makes it safe to think and laugh at the same time! An evening of dangerous ideas and radical inquiry by the undisputed Queen of Underground Performance into what it means to be human, right now! Right here!
Penny Arcade has never wavered or relaxed in her quest to entertain, challenge and expand both herself and her audience. Her rare ability to articulate ideas that are still forming in the collective psyche that have not yet emerged and been sanctioned by collective consciousness is a message of hope!
"Penny Arcade has got to be the smartest, most quotable party in town ! Audacious and irresistible!" –The London Times
"Penny Arcade combines the anarchy of Lenny Bruce with the pathos of Judy Garland. She is provocative, intellectually stimulating, perceptive and hilariously funny." –The List, UK
"Penny Arcade is a wonder to behold; she manages to entertain, absorb and broaden the audience simultaneously. Beg, steal a ticket." -Newsweek
