What’s so funny about a comedian’s drunk brother threatening to murder her? Turns out, Everything.
Fresh off the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and 2 sold-out shows in Los Angeles, Stacie Burrows brings her new solo dark comedy Bulletproof Unicorn to Center Stage Theater right here in downtown Santa Barbara! Audiences find themselves laughing far too hard at the harrowing, yet hilarious, true tale of her brush with death at the hands of her drunk brother.
Los Angeles-based comedian Stacie Burrows is thrilled to tell her story at Center Stage Theater. Armed with nothing but glitter and good intentions, she went to Texas to fix everything that was wrong with her dysfunctional family, inadvertently placing her kids in the line of fire. Lovers of dark humour will appreciate the punchy way she describes how her misguided intent to help her estranged, alcoholic brother went way off the rails. Stacie gets caught in a web of helpfulness. In her quest to save her kids, she battles religious zealots, drunks with guns, and far too many dead dogs.
‘Reminiscent of a Johnny Cash song – dark and raw underneath while buoyantly clipping along on the surface with Stacie Burrows’ comedic style.’ Comedian Greg Walloch
“Bulletproof Unicorn is so mad; you can’t believe it’s a true story!” Janice Kernoghan-Reid, Artistic Director of Replay Theatre Belfast
“The tale Stacie Burrows tells, of her alcoholic brother, her own desire to help, and guns in Texas, with a full supporting cast populated by her interesting family, is one of the wildest of wild rides, and more so because it’s based on real events.” ***One4Review, Edinburgh
