Bad Listener: A One-Mannequin Show

191213_BadListener.jpg

“Bad Listener” is a solo-performance theatrical comedy written, created, and performed by comedian Nickey Winkelman ...and one mannequin. This semi-autobiographical tale follows our main character (played by one mannequin) through personal triumphs and struggles while the world moves around her. On a journey to find a balance between self-care and self-absorption, she meets other characters along the way (all played by Nickey Winkelman) and must battle through human interaction in a society full of screens.

Nickey Winkelman is a stand-up comedian and comedy writer born and raised in Columbus, Ohio. While studying theatre at UCSB, Winkelman began her stand up career in 2004 at age nineteen. Today she works primarily at Up Front at Shadowbox Live as their event coordinator and as an emcee. She is the cohost of Tuesdays with Mak & Winks (along with Shadowbox Live head writer Jimmy Mak), the cohost of the trivia game show podcast The Quiz Box (along with magician Erik Tait), and one of the producers of Cbus Comedy Festival.

“Bad Listener” is Winkelman’s first “one-woman show,” which she has delightfully coined her “one-mannequin show.” In early 2019, Winkelman received an individual artist grant from GCAC to assist with the production of “Bad Listener” and is grateful to GCAC for their continued support of the arts community in Columbus.

Dick Valentine Solo Acoustic Show

Dick Valentine Solo Acoustic Show

191016_DV.jpg

A tender acoustic performance by Electric Six frontman Dick Valentine precedes the performance by the full band at The Basement on Oct. 16, the first such acoustic performance by the self-proclaimed “American Troubador” in the state of Ohio. Valentine performs stripped down versions of Electric Six songs as well as selections from his five solo records. Dick Valentine absorbs your tenderness throughout the performance and gives it back to you tenfold, like some sort of photosynthetic valve. He feeds on your tenderness like Vladimir Putin feeds on freedom. Your tenderness will soon be his, but his latest CD “Illuminati Bees” will soon be yours as you may buy it directly from him onstage in the middle of his set.

Doors open at 6 PM

Show starts at 7 PM
