Described as a family drama that can "crack" you up, Blaine brings her audience into the world of her drug and alcohol-filled past, which included growing up in a crack house. The show previously ran in Hollywood, which included a tour of drug and alcohol rehab centers. With very little to smile about, Blaine found solace in the comedy line-up of NBC Thursdays. These were her only "Friends": Jennifer Aniston and Matthew Perry. By performing her show, she hopes to provide help to those who need it by reminding us how life can be painfully funny.
The show plays at Collective Unconscious, 279 Church Street. Tickets are $15. Call 212-279-4488 or visit www.fringenyc.org for ticket and schedule information.
