Presented like a drinking game set within an audition room, #SOBLESSED Live!, according to press notes, "tells the story of the modern day working (or non-working) actor living in New York. From college and pounding the pavement, all the way to Broadway and back on Funemployment, several actors will share their unique stories from their experiences in the business, paired with songs. It's like A Chorus Line, without the serious stuff or the 1970s. There's also literally an interactive drinking game with prizes."
Annoying Actor Friend began as a parody Twitter account (@Actor_Friend) spoofing social media behavior and later went on to publish "#SOBLESSED," a satirical tell-all describing the life of the modern-day actor in New York City. "#SOBLESSED" became the Amazon #1 best-selling theatre book on its first day of sale.
