Quick Dish NY: SIDE by SIDE Comes Back to New York ft Maggie Crane 9.23 at Brooklyn Comedy Collective
Emerging out of a post-Fringe hibernation, MAGGIE CRANE is ready to take on New York with a performance of SIDE by SIDE at Brooklyn Comedy Collective. The show was performed 26 times in Scotts at Edinburgh Fringe Fest and made The British Comedy Guide’s list of Best Reviewed Fringe Shows. It also received glowing four and five-star reviews from The Scotsman, Broadway Baby, Entertainment Now, and many more! Maggie survived haggis, so the least you can do is support this ultra unique event.
Set during the early 2000s in the crunchy-granola-meets-redneck-woods of Western Massachusetts, Maggie Crane’s darkly funny solo show is an autobiographical account of growing up amidst disability, death, and Dunkin Donuts. To ground the show in preteen angst and vulnerability, Maggie foregrounds her love of emo music and her lifelong obsession with Panic! at the Disco. Side by Side is part solo show, part stand-up special about comedian Maggie’s relationship with her older brother Aiden. Aiden was blind, in a wheelchair, and developmentally disabled, but this never stopped the wild jealousy, sibling rivalry, and unique bond between the two siblings. DJ Smells will be slinging emo bangers pre-show, and post-show the welcome home party will continue. Come join in the fun!
