Isaac Oliver Sits Down

in the stage room:
Writer/performer Isaac Oliver (author of Intimacy Idiot, contributor to The New York Times, and writer for HBO's "High Maintenance") returns to the Virgil for an all-new night of his signature sit-down comedy.

"A rare talent who manages to deftly combine raunchiness, intelligence, hilarity, and heart." —The New Yorker

"Brilliant and hilarious and surprisingly, shockingly at times, intimate. You'll want to have dinner with him and maybe want to slightly protect him from the world and himself." —Nathan Lane, The New York Times

“If David Sedaris and Fran Lebowitz had a baby who wrote about subways, theater patrons and blow jobs, he might be a lot like Isaac Oliver." —Time Out New York

Payday

"PayDay is a Concert series on some dope, curated, rap shit. The idea is giving fans under-the-radar rising acts they’re proud to pay to see, and also giving artists a chance to pay dues by getting on dope lineups that expose them to influential LA crowds. 6 tight acts.  This isn’t a showcase, it’s an experience."

David Liebe Hart LIVE
Aug

to Aug 6

David Liebe Hart LIVE

w/ ADULT KARATE (Album Release)
R. CLOWN
MARTIN MARTINS

Best known for his roles on Adult Swim’s Tim & Eric Awesome Show Great Job!, David Liebe Hart is an outsider musician, actor and painter. A true original, he has communicated with extra-terrestrials, owns a large collection of puppets, and is obsessed with trains.

On stage, David unleashes his most unbridled, maniacally passionate self, complete with his decrepit ventriloquist puppets, stories of alien encounters, and heartily belted songs about space, locomotives and unrequited love. Every show is as different and unpredictable as David is himself, and can veer from hilarity in one moment to awkward confusion in the next. In any case, a truly unique and mind-bending experience is guaranteed. August’s west coast US tour has Liebe Hart backed by a rollicking space-rock trio led by lauded indie rocker Mo Troper, co-founder of Portland OR-based Good Cheer Records.

& surprise special guests
 

Dear Owen Wilson is a live comedy show hosted by Blair Socci. After a wildly successful, sold-out run in New York City, this is the show's Los Angeles debut. Based on a letter Blair wrote to Owen Wilson in 2007 after his suicide attempt telling him how much she loved him and appreciated him, the show will feature comedians reading a letters to the celebrities of their choice. They could write it from the perspective of their 13 year old selves connecting to Dave Matthews Band as their parents are getting a divorce, or maybe they just want to tell Madonna how hot she is. After, Blair will interview them about it. The show will also include stand-up, special guests, and other surprises. Come get to know comedians spilling their heart out in ways you've never seen before.
