New York, NY (PRWEB) September 5, 2009
After a sell-out performance last month, FUCT is booked into Joe's Pub at The Public Theater for 12 monthly appearances, beginning this Saturday, September 19, according to promoter Greg Cayea.
"The August 29 show was a big hit. We sold out the 161-seat house and had to bring in extra chairs for the over-flow. Anyone interested in the September 19 performances should plan on getting tickets early," said Cayea, adding that the no-rules variety act will be back soon.
Tickets for the 11 p.m. show are $12, with two-drink minimum, and may be purchased at the Joe's Pub box office or online here.
CMJ's Getting FUCT, Too.
FUCT is also appearing at Sullivan Hall on October 20 at 8 p.m. for the opening day of the CMJ Music, Film, and Comedy Festival.
The FUCT show is a circus of humor, suffering and social commentary, incorporating music, dance, nudity and pain, misdirection and audience participation. FUCT challenges what audiences find taboo or offensive.
FUCT began in May 2002, when a group of students gave an illegal performance of underground comedy. The show was put on at midnight in the black box theater with a curtain, microphone and a keg. Back then the only point collectively agreed upon was the title, FUCT. By the following fall, rumors of this secret show had quickly spread and when FUCT returned (now introducing a live band to the mix), the audience had more than doubled in size. Students crammed in to sit or stand wherever they could to catch a glimpse of the stage. In December 2004, a portion of the group partnered up with most of the original members in an attempt to take FUCT to the world. FUCT in Public was performed for one night only at the Rattlestick Theatre. The event thrust the troupe onto the New York City comedy scene.
FUCT has appeared in two segments on HDNet's Deadline and at Caroline's on Broadway, The Broadway Comedy Club, Upright Citizen's Brigade, Spotlight Live, The Duplex and in several impromptu street performances.
