May, you're too kind to me! Here's to another first: I did my first performance on May 19, 2018. Super excited to be part of the VHS Presents series at Videology, hosted by my wonderful friend Angel Yau and Ross Brunetti. I showed a montage of home movies from 1997. Tons of cute lil Yeiry, see gif for example.
THIS MONTH we will be screening videos of our past that highlight our families in all their weird, beautiful, loving, cringey glory. Whether they showered us with embarrassing affection or discouraged (and ultimately inspired!) us through their own repressed problems, we have the videos to prove why we became the people that we are. Come laugh with us at our ridiculous families!
Each month we bring together some of the best comedians and performers in NYC to show you the videos they made in their embarrassing adolescence. We’ve seen school projects, Tarentino knock offs, PSAs, high school musicals, and many other ways that children embarrass themselves before they become adults that embarrass themselves on stage purposefully.
