About this event
Kinky shopping lists, nonsensical monologues and way too much physical comedy. Mechanical Man is a 50-minute solo act of Absurdist Comedy.
Awkwardly comedic and surprisingly tragic, this heart-warming and downright silly show explores themes of loss, grief, nostalgia, and friendship with a bizarre, humorous edge. Mostly without dialogue, this is the show for the strange, the illiterate, the people who want to see something totally out there and have a laugh and then maybe… something more.
