The Manifesto Show’s Last Shamrock Monoscene Night

This Friday the Manifesto Show continues its St. Patrick’s Day tradition with our 5th Annual Last Shamrock Monoscene Night!

Each team will perform a monoscene set in the fictional bar The Last Shamrock, but that fictional bar will be stocked with VERY REAL booze. And of course, every team will be given a UCB performer to serve as their bartender!

This year’s bartenders are Dickie Copeland, Wayland McQueen, Edgar Momplaisir, Jake Regal, Joel Spence, and Jacob Wysocki! Additionally we’re happy to be serving spirits from Blinking Owl Distillery this year. And as always, poster by James Mulholland.

Plus, there are only 8 more weeks left before The Manifesto Show retires, so come get in on this boozy, commie fun!
