Liz Miele returns to the Pretty Much the Best Comedy Show series

comedian Liz Miele

The Pretty Much the Best Comedy Show series is returning to Capital Rep in Albany December 31 -- and it's bringing headliner Liz Miele back to town. Tickets are $15 ahead / $20 day of.

Miele as the headliner for a Pretty Much show at Proctors last year. A clip from a Paste profile:

Her ability to zero in on the feelings behind her feelings evokes Chris Gethard: even when the material is dark, it is affably so; when it is light, there is darkness woven into the fabric. (I'm fond of a bit in her recent set at the Paste Studio in which she considers pregnancy as a means of treating hormonal acne). "I really do think how reflective you have to be in comedy and how reflective you have to be in therapy really came together to give me a little more understanding of who I am as a person, which helped me have more of an understanding of who I am as a comic," she said. This was not an easy process--"There were like three years of finding out everything that sucks about me"--but it seems to have proven crucial to her work. "We all go into comedy as a defense mechanism," she speculated. "I think a lot of us feel ostracized by whatever community we grew up in, so then we start to build our own community. It's weird."

As with other Pretty Much shows, the night also includes an opener and a host. Show starts at 8 pm.

Very nice redesigns. I hope that area becomes more of a neighborhood rather than what it currently is - still an expressway that happens to have hotels and apartments along it. I'd love to see wide sidewalks and protected bike lanes from Crossgates all the way to Manning.
