New York, NY (October 8, 2013): Ideasmyth is thrilled to present former Ideasmyth client Andy Christie’s The Liar Show on Wednesday, October 23, 2013 at 7:30pm at The Writers Room.
Since 2006, The Liar Show has taken the art of deception to theaters, cabarets and cultural centers around the U.S. and Canada and was called “A Winner” (The Scotsman) and received 4 Stars during a month-long run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Liar has featured: The New Yorker contributor Andy Borowitz; Mike Daisey, called “The master storyteller” by the The New York Times; and former Bill Clinton speechwriter, Mark Katz; in addition to Comedy Central personalities, film directors, lapsed Mormons with a bone to pick with the Almighty, and even an NYPD gang squad detective.
At each show, four performers tell short, outrageous personal stories, but listen carefully, because one of these people is making it all up. Interrogate the cast and expose the Liar to win our unbelievable T-shirt. As The Washington Post wrote: “Prizes mean nothing compared with the sweet victory of being recognized as the savviest people in the room.”
Andy Christie is a former Ideasmyth client and the creator and host of The Liar Show. He is also the cofounder of Slim Films, an illustration and animation studio based in New York. His writing has appeared in The New York Times and in the Thomas Beller anthology Lost and Found: Stories from New York.
Please join the Ideasmyth team as we welcome The Liar Show to the Writers Room.
