San Francisco's Flipino Cultural District

The Geek Show


  • Bindlestiff Studio 185 6th Street San Francisco, CA, 94103 United States

"The Geek Show" is a dynamic theater experience featuring sketch comedy, scripted drama, monologues, movement, and film to celebrate and satirize the phenomenon of "geek culture." It's designed to unite fangirls and fanboys from all geekdoms, alike, and shed light on some of the community's bigger problems from both outside and within.

This is the inaugural edition of "The Geek Show," produced by Thomas Paras, Marc Abrigo, Michelle Fajardo, and Lauren Lola. All material for this show has been written and performed by the Geek Show troupe -- a diverse collection of seasoned and up-and-coming artists -- ready to geek out with Bindlestiff and the SoMa Pilipinas community of San Francisco.


Pieces include:

"TOM BRADY IS MY WAIFU" 
When three kids are sent by their parents to a "de-nerdification" boot camp, a no-nonsense drill instructor goes ballistic in trying to lead them down the right path.

"THE LAST REFUGE" 
In a battle for the fate of the world(s) and after having been stripped of all their powers, will the Dungeon Master, The Collector, The Cosplayer and The Writer find their way out of this tight situation, or lose their minds in the process? Written by Ed Mabasa.

"CAUSE EFFECT"
In an audience-interactive sketch, “Cause Effect” is a self-aware parody that follows the illusion of choice as found in certain video games. The audience's decisions will affect how the narrative will play out. So, what will your choice be?

"THE CARDBOARD KNIGHT" 
An isolated student finds himself bullied in high school, until he finds the wherewithall to stand up to his tormentors in a rather unorthodox way.

"FRACTALS"
Eva and Leila have a shared love for Miyazaki films, and as they try to create a film program together, they find out just how the rabbit hole their attention to detail goes. Written by Lauren Lola.

And many more!
