Funny Bonz, the 'Humerus' Solution
Life is stressful under normal circumstances. The status quo of our world today has brought stress levels to stratospheric heights. We all need a way to unwind and you know what they say, “Laughter is the best medicine.”
Enter Funny Bōnz, the “humerus” solution to surviving these times! A little levity can derail stress almost immediately. Funny Bōnz is a politically incorrect musical sketch comedy revue featuring musical satire of current events, politics, and pop culture. Think of it as a musical SNL.
Produced by P3 Theatre Company, Funny Bōnz was created in the style of Laffing Matterz, an award-winning dinner theatre that entertained audiences from around the world in the Greater Fort Lauderdale area for an unprecedented nine (9) years.

We are Goldbaby – sketch comedy, not sketchy comedy. Lush, glamorous, and a hot mess, we’re more than just one flavor. As a leading house team at The Pack Theater in Hollywood, Goldbaby is both a love letter & twist on classic sketch, blending the simple with absurd, sexy with satire, and the whatever that third thing is that makes you laugh. To put it simply, we’re gold, baby. Solid gold.

molly Kirschenbaum is trans-non-binary. They use exclusively they/them pronouns, have been out for years as queer…they have a mullet. Can you say #pride? Wait, don’t <3. But WHY, given all of these gay little factors, are they still completely addicted to womanhood?
In Hot! :( , an ironic pop concert, Kirschenbaum grapples with wanting to matter, and how wanting to matter became wanting to be beautiful, and how wanting to be beautiful became the fear that beauty is unachievable. Through songs like “Put Down Ur Phone And Look At Me,” “I’m A Pop Star”, and “One-Person Show”, botched coming out stories, and a reenactment of that time they won that award in High School for having a dead dad, Kirschenbaum explores their need for male validation, wanting to feel special, why they want to look like either a German schoolboy or Angelyne and nothing in-between, what grieving a former self looks like, how we all suffer at the hands of gender, and how to handle being painfully, transcendently hot.
molly Kirschenbaum is a queer, trans, non-binary Jew from Los Angeles. They are not blonde, which is sad. They are a writer, musician, and comedian, and amateur puppeteer. Currently, you can find them wondering if you’re mad at them.

Kind-hearted, middle-aged pastor Linus Stephenson has a heart of gold and has touched countless lives during his decades of ministry work. He proudly attributes his effect on people to the healing influence of God, who turned him from an abused little boy and tormented young man into a pillar of the community.
Yet there is much we do not know. Even as Linus uses the Lord’s strength to aid a traumatized young congregant, he realizes he may have entered a battle in which even his spiritual mother cannot help him.
Do you agree that God’s love can redeem us all – and do you think it’s a good thing if so

In dystopian America, citizens test into their community (“Estate”) based on their predominant intelligence. At the First Estate bookclub, sherry, fists, and romance novels fly when a horrible truth emerges – someone’s tested out.

Queer: Drag, Drugs, and a Tick Tock Clock.
This solo show is about my journey of coming to terms with my Queer identity, and of the ever-raging battle between my inner Angels and Demons. The barrios of a Catholic (South America) Colombia, do not encourage self-expression for those of us that are different from the status quo. One finds himself desperately looking for self-love, through the art of Drag (female impersonation) and cocaine in the streets of Miami, while the song of a tick tock clock leads me to self-acceptance.
