Paris Syndrome written, directed and starring Ross Buran, plus featuring Heidi Hayward and myself goes up on theUCB Sunset stage in Los Angeles, CA at 8:30pm tonight July 17th!!!

Grab Tickets Now:

Everyone knows Paris is the city of romance…or is it? Paris Syndrome, a new comedic play from Emmy nominee Ross Buran (Gay of Thrones), explores love lost and a war on Parisian sensibility.

A year removed from his divorce, a young-ish man decides the only way he can overcome the depressive hole he’s fallen into is to blame all the romance-mongers in Paris and sets off on an international journey of self-rediscovery… Well, sort of. Basically, he just wants to find the lock he and his ex-wife once hung on a Parisian bridge and cut it off.

After a successful Fringe run, Paris Syndrome is being staged at UCB-Sunset! We’ll be performing as a part of the standing show Legitimate Goddmamn Theater. If you missed it at fringe, check it out here! Or you know, if you’d just like to see it again.

Tickets available at:

Here’s Your First Look at “The Break with Michelle Wolf”


This Sunday, May 27th, Michelle Wolf will kick off her weekly late night series The Break with Michelle Wolf on Netflix complete with monologue, remote segments, bits, and an ultra fancy desk (in fact, it’s nicer than most late night talk talk show desks).

Of course, this is the second phase of Michelle Wolf dominating 2018 as she is just coming off of her spot on roast at the White House Correspondents Dinner. Also, we have a feeling that is the start of Netflix figuring out late night as they also have a weekly Hasan Minhaj show on deck too. We will all have to wait and see how true that notion is.

In the meantime, you can watch a teaser trailer for The Break with Michelle Wolf here.

Excited to watch this!
