TNMB: The Big Bad Armo Show

Thursday August 29th @ 10 pm - ONE NIGHT ONLY

Since 2009, The Big Bad Armo Show has garnered a huge following with its witty and hilarious sketch pieces about the Armenian experience in Los Angeles.  With a vast array of off-beat characters,  illuminating cultural commentary, outlandish improv and down-right funny vignettes, the Big Bad Armo Show sheds laughter and insight on this community that has planted its marble column roots in the “hills of the Glendale”. From being the first nation to adopt Christianity to Kim Kardahsian, the show that holds up a fun house mirror to the 10,000 years of cultural idiosyncrasies that have made-up the Armenian community. After four years of staging five different installments of the show, with over 60 sketches written, and a host of brilliantly portrayed characters, the cast and crew embarked on a west coast tour and the audience response was astounding.  Written and created by N.E.A. grant recipient Lory Tatoulian, the LA Weekly wrote: “Playwright Lory Tatoulian turns this confusion into comedy gold in the Big Bad Armo Show. If anybody knows the holidays, it’s the Armenians — celebrating Christmas since 301 A.D." Come and see System of a Down have a CD release party at the high school they all went to in Hollywood, and get inspired by the Sossi Hayrabedian’s mayoral campaign for Pasadena, see what happens when Mexicans and Armenians become neighbors, and learn the secrets of negotiation from celebrity attorney Mark Geragos.  The Big Bad Armo show is not only for Armenians, but anybody who has lived, drank, friended, married, divorced,negotiated or worked with Armenians. We know you have. The Big Bad Armo Show promises  not to disappoint. Party after the show with kebab, music and plenty of eligible women and men you can’t bring home to your parents. Cast:Lory TatoulianHelen KalognomosAlex KalognomosAlex MashikianLudwig ManukianJames MartinRaffi Rupchian ABSOLUTELY NO LATE SEATING No Refunds or ExchangesIf a show is SOLD OUT online, that means ALL tickets have been issued.
