Ben Wasserman: Live After Death

June 25, 8 pm10 pm.


Part catharsis, part circus, total chaos: an hour of sometimes interactive comedy about grief and loss that’s actually funny.

A comedy show about death?? In a funeral home?!

Within the span of 3 years Ben Wasserman lost his dad, granddad, uncle, and four friends. In Live After Death, Ben shares his losses and grief with the audience through a chaotic blend of comedy, clowning, and crowd participation. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, there’s juggling, a seance, some karate — it’ll be a whole thing!

Featuring an opening set from Julia Shiplett (Comedy Central).

This month’s show is raising funds for The Dinner Party (thedinnerparty.org), a platform for young grievers to connect and build community. 

TICKETS start at $15


** Show subject to cancellation if someone dies and the funeral home needs to be used as a funeral home.

**COVID-19 Vaccination Required
