  • SILLY BOY
  • “In his intimate debut hour “SILLY BOY” Rich Hardisty takes us on a journey through the highs and the lows of his unusual life. Expect anecdotes and observations about mental institutions, missing dads and mania, all from his warm/inquisitive/childlike perspective. In the show Rich tries his best to convey what mental illness really looks and feels like. But you won’t find any self pity or loathing here…this is a celebration of the beauty and silliness of it all and the interesting, hilarious and sometimes shocking things his brain is capable of doing (whether he wants it to or not.) The show culminates in a 10 minute performance piece using a projection, where Rich attempts to show what a manic episode looks and feels like inside his head. Raw, open and honest but most importantly…FUNNY! CREDITS: RICH is a writer / performer who has performed in shows for C4, BBC and Netflix, has developed 2 sitcoms with channel 4, and developed projects with production companies:- Baby Cow , Spelthorne and V.A.L.

This weekly show kicks off on Juneteenth as part of FRIGID New York’s Queerly Festival, and each week will be hosted by a different BIPOC artist.

It was created as a way to offer paid opportunities for BIPOC artists. Besides featuring work by these artists, each episode will include a segment called “This Week in Reparations” that examines an organization’s statement of solidarity with the #BLACKLIVESMATTER movement and keeps track of the work they have done toward that goal since releasing the statement. **All in attendance must adhere to the COVID guidelines that apply to this show.
