Laughing Pig is putting on a digital telethon, and we need help to fill it. In order to support our goal of finding a new space, we want to put on an old school, 24-hour marathon show full of weird, wild, fun acts. We are looking for volunteer performers to provide content during our 24-hour long constant livestream.

This is the type of setting that begs for both traditional and bizarre acts. Improv, podcasts, music, performance art, live painting, amateur burlesque, public apologies, we will consider it all!

We are all looking for a creative outlet right now, so why not choose one that helps out fellow artists. If you are interested in sharing your talents with us, sign up for a 15, 30, or 60 slot here !
