“The Tiny Sirko Show”

“The Tiny Sirko Show”

Here’s the trailer for the new show I co-created with director/producer Stuart Wilson. We wrote the pilot, in which I appear opposite a hugely talented cast of fellow standups. Part sitcom, part talk show, “The Tiny Sirko Show” could be described as a testament to self-expression through psychosis. Everyone is nuts. It’s the mad leading the insane. In “The Tiny Sirko Show,” frustrated entrepreneur Titus Stanalonis reinvents himself as Tiny Sirko, a Ukrainian little person and poet fighting for creative and personal freedom. While this new persona further complicates Titus’s already-dysfunctional relationships, “Tiny” engages with the world in a way his creator never had. Recalling “The Larry Sanders Show,” each sitcom episode includes a talk show segment in which Tiny interviews real life artists, influencers and politicos. We’ve also created a stage show blending poetry, observation, anecdotes and song. Featured in the show are ten original musical pieces created by Stu and I in collaboration with composers Mel Elias and Wagner Fulco of Wava Studios. The album, “Tiny’s First Steps”, is available on CDbaby. And this is Tiny Sirko’s personal blog. So much fun creating all this content. Psyched about this project. Stay tuned!!                  ...

No maximum. 2/3 Peter Pan, 1/3 Responsible Adult, Hersh Rephun calls on personal experience – along with characters, impressions, and the support of musician Brian Francis – to traverse the choppy seas of religion, relationships, parenthood, race relations, self-indulgence and mommy issues in the span of one hour. Tiffany King has a strong sense of self. She can charm and disarm audiences with a look, a word – or an unexpected burst of song. And that charm comes in handy whether Tiffany is sharing intimate truths about her Texas upbringing, her marriage or new motherhood. Tiffany and Hersh – who have performed (together and apart) at such venues as The Ice House, The Comedy Store, Flappers, Hot Latina Comedy and StandUp NY – draw on her Latina heritage and his Miami roots to entertain you til the last wheel comes off…and at this show – in the back room of the Pig ‘n Whistle – it always does. NOTE: Seating is first-come first-serve so please arrive early! You’ll want to regret this from the beginning. Hersh Tiffany Brian Hersh & Tiffany Tiffany &...
