It shouldn’t be a shock that Mark Twain would be featured at a comedy club. His wit shows through most of his published works, but the material to be shared at City Steam is not suitable for your next family gathering – if anyone under 21 is will be there.
Twain himself said, “If I can’t swear in heaven, I shall not stay there,” so expect plenty of raw, uncensored material from Samuel Clemens.
The event is call “R-Rated Twain” and Sea Tea Improv -- a product of the Hartford Stage Company and the Upright Citizens Brigade -- will deliver Twain texts that mention personal hygiene, intimate relations, and pretty much everything else in between.
The show starts at 7 p.m. at the City Steam Brew Ha Ha Comedy Club on Thursday, Jan. 27. Tickets are $15, $10 from members. You can learn more here.
