UnCabaret is the legendary show that Entertainment Weekly called "Liberating", Los Angeles Magazone called "Legendary", The New York Times called "Seminal", LA Weekly called  "The Mother Show of alternative comedy". It's been a hot bed of personal storytelling that fostered the careers of iconoclastic comedy stars like Kathy Griffin, Julia Sweeney, Margaret Cho, Greg Behrendt, Laura Kightlinger, Mike McDonald, Bob Odenkirk, David Cross, Janeane Garofalo, Andy Kindler, Jeff Garlin, Andy Dick, Dana Gould, Patton Oswalt and Taylor Negron. UnCabaret is where award winning comedy writers like Judd Apatow, John Riggi, Michael Patrick King and Larry Charles have connect directly with audiences.  Where luminaries like Jon Stewart, Sarah Silverman, Roseanne Barr, Sandra Bernhard, Carrie Fisher and Bill Maher have popped in to try their hand at this comedy free styling.

After an extended hiatus, UnCabaret is back! The LA Times recently wrote about the new UnCabaret. Here's the link.

The new UnCabaret is has added more deeply talented performers of both the comedic and musical variety including Moshe Kasher, Mss Coco Peru, Joe Mande, Kyle Dunnigan, Rob Delaney, Jill Sobule, Xander Smith, Ruby Freidman, Timor and The Dime Museum and Kelly Mantle. Beth is producing along with Musical Director Mitch Kaplan who is an award-winning singer, songwriter and pianist and has worked as a producer, songwriter, and musical director with such iconic luminaries as Sandra Bernhard, Ana Gasteyer and Cady Huffman.

Mitch and Beth began working together on music for "100% Happy 88% of the Time" and are excited about expanding their mix of comedy and music into UnCabaret.
