Five pirates aboard a ship. Each harbors a dirty little secret, and each sings a dirty little song about it. It’s South Park meets The Rocky Horror Picture Show meets pirates.

Script and song lyrics by Brian Boone, who writes for Someecards, College Humor, Funny Or Die, and Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader, and original music by Gabe Dickinson. This one-act campy musical romp, directed by Dr. j. nick taylor, is full of irreverent jokes, big laughs, and talkin’ and singin’ like pirates.

With audience participation and improv games as a part of the show, this show is the Christmas gift you give yourself! This limited-engagement run from the Community College of Denver is premiering here as a participating entry in the Kennedy Center’s American College Theatre Festival.

Have you ever pondered the idea that Dr. Seuss’ Green Eggs and Ham might be racially charged? And just whose uncle IS Uncle Ben? Well, maybe it’s time to take a closer look. Using comedic sketches, improv, and character pieces, this one-man show from the mind of Dad’s Garage’s own Mark Kendall examines the representation of black males in the media. From prison to white flight, Aunt Jemima, and even Reading Rainbow – we’ll explore some of the ways these images influence our views on race in everyday life. Word to your mother. But not the n-word.

Mark first got into comedy while studying film at Northwestern University. He had a chance to work at Comedy Central through the Chris Rock Summer School Program for up and coming comedy writers of color. During his time at Comedy Central, he got to pitch jokes to the writing staffs of “The Daily Show” and “The Colbert Report.” Mark performs comedy in Atlanta at Dad’s Garage Theatre Company and Highwire Comedy. He also teaches improv and sketch writing. He is currently touring with his one man show “The Magic Negro and Other Blackness” a sketch show that examines the depiction of black men in the media. For his work with the show, he was recently awarded “Best Professional Funny Man” by Creative Loafing Atlanta.
