The hysterical and poignant Ben Wasserman did get to bring his very special solo show, Live After Death, to LA to mix unfettered silliness with deep healing from grief and loss, but had to do it in a traditional theater, an atypical set up for his show which was largely performed at a funeral home.
Thankfully, Wasserman’s return to Los Angeles with Live After Death is going to happen at Death Doula LA, a different sort of family planning service that guides individuals and their families through the end of life. Wasserman’s show is special as is with truly getting you to have you double over laughing and also “feel all the feels” between absurd bits and cathartic sharing of stories and remembering of loved ones that we’ve lost. It will undoubtedly be something, even more so, that one shouldn’t miss at a venue that deals with death on a day-to-day basis.
Ben has Fri. Oct. 13th and Sat. Oct. 14th at 7:30PM set for two exclusive performances of Live After Death with LA comedy darlings Reshma Meister and Camirin Farmer opening the shows respectively. Tickets are $15 and you can (and should) go get them here.
