"Much Ado About Nothing" -- Shakespeare's Rom-ComMischief and merriment await in Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing", the original battle of the sexes. This witty romantic comedy shows how love brings out the best and worst in all of us. Fun-loving bachelor Benedick returns from a victory at war only to find himself caught up in another battle: a war of wits and words with the acid-tongued, headstrong Beatrice. Though they've each sworn off romance, their "merry war" of clever insults reveals the growing attraction between them. Meanwhile, Benedick's fellow soldier, Claudio, is head over heels for Hero, the governor's daughter. They will soon be wed ... if the treacherous Don John doesn't ruin everything first. Passionate and blindingly funny, "Much Ado About Nothing" is filled with some of the most brilliant comedic repartee ever written, and now you can see the play at the Huntington Beach Central Park Amphitheater.

RISK! is a live show and podcast where people tell true stories they never thought they'd dare to share. Founded in 2009 by Kevin Allison of MTV's legendary sketch comedy show, The State, RISK! has been downloaded tens of millions of times and has featured incredible true stories from Sarah Silverman, Kevin Nealon, Dan Savage, Margaret Cho, Andy Dick, Michael Ian Black, and regular folks from around the world. Slate calls RISK! "jaw-dropping, hilarious and just plain touching." RISK! also puts on live shows for sold out crowds internationally. Learn more at www.RISK-show.com. Kevin Allison, creator and host of RISK!, started his comedy career on the legendary sketch series The State on MTV. But in 2009, everything changed. "I was doing a solo show out west, playing characters as usual," he says. "Afterward, Michael Ian Black [also of The State] said, 'I kept hoping you'd drop the act and tell some of your own stories.' I said, 'Yikes, that just seems so risky...' But even as I said it, I could feel in my gut that that kind of risk could lead to the best stuff." The very next week, Kevin was on stage telling his own stories. "Suddenly, I was looking right into the eyes of audience members. We were reacting to each other, like friends. After the show, people didn't just say, 'That was funny,' they said, 'Thank you. That really got to me.' I was finding the meaning in my own experiences and the people listening felt like they'd lived through these things with me. The more I worried I was taking a risk with a story ??? because it was too emotional, too provocative, or just too nuts ??? the more the audience lit up." In August of 2009, host Kevin and producer Michelle Walson started the live show RISK!, "where people tell true stories they never thought they'd dare to share in public" at Arlene's Grocery on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. It was an instant hit. Stories ran the gamut from the sacred to the profane, the hilarious to the horrific ??? and for the audience, it was a chance to re-connect with the things that make us human. It's still just about the most cathartic, laugh-out-loud, anything-goes kind of smorgasbord you're likely to see anywhere. The monthly RISK! live show, winner of an ECNY Award for Best Variety Show, now lives at The Bell House in New York City and the Bootleg Theater in LA. RISK! also tours to sold out international crowds. Many remarkable people have shown a side of themselves on RISK! that you probably haven't seen elsewhere, like Michael Ian Black, Janeane Garofalo, R. Ben Garant, Lisa Lampanelli, Kevin Nealon, Margaret Cho, Marc Maron, Sarah Silverman, Michael Showalter, Maria Bamford, Nick Swardson, Lili Taylor, Adam McKay, Rachel Dratch, Andy Borowitz, Kerri Kenney-Silver, Joe LoTruglio, and more. The audio podcast of RISK! ??? also hosted by Kevin Allison ??? premiered online in October of 2009. The podcast includes not just the best stories from the live shows but also "radio-style" stories and interstitial music and comedy from artists all over the world. Most episodes of the show are free and easy to download from iTunes and other sources. With new episodes released each Monday, the RISK! podcast is the winner of an ECNY Award for Best Podcast, and has been downloaded tens of millions of times to date. In 2010, the RISK! live show series went bi-coastal. Monthly RISK! shows in Hollywood are hosted by Beowulf Jones at the Bootleg Theater. In 2011, Kevin and the RISK! team created The Story Studio, at www.thestorystudio.org, a school dedicated to teaching people from all walks of life to turn their most meaningful experiences into powerful self-expression. "Practically anybody will benefit from this training," Kevin says. "We always say that, from the bar to the boardroom, a good story well told is what leaves a lasting impression." New workshops through The Story Studio start each month and corporate workshops can be custom-tailored to a company's needs. RISK! is a labor of love, a communal groundswell, and a start-up with one hell of a future in the works. Be a part of it all. Or, as Kevin ends every episode of the podcast saying, "Folks, today's the day. Take a risk!"

FASIV began in 2013 as Illusion of Self with founding members Frank Abreau Salazar IV (Vocals//Guitar) and Miles DeIaco (Bass//Producer). After months of writing, producing and recording songs, Tim Aristil (Drums) accepted the opportunity to join the project. Soon to follow, was Sean Reilly (Guitar) ???I fell in love after only hearing seconds of a song.??? In 2015, the band began demoing songs under the working name Strange Hotel and quickly gained momentum with their energetic live set and undeniable musicianship. Highlights include opening for the legendary rock band Boston, NAMM 2016 and their upcoming SXSW showcase. Now, returning to their original name, FASIV and with the guidance of manager, Elizabeth Simon (Bourgeois Productions Presents) the band is poised to launch their debut release and embark on a West Coast Tour. Formed in 2009, the Tacoma group Oh Dear! has enjoyed local success due to their sharp, incisive songwriting and driving indie pop melodies, which drew comparisons to bands like Pedro the Lion, Bright Eyes, and Minus the Bear. As guitarist for Oh Dear!, J. Martin has had years to hone his stagecraft, and his debut EP shows the fruits of his efforts. Big Air began in 2013 in the hills of central Virginia where songwriter Rob Dobson crafted his own brand of upbeat, riff-heavy fuzz pop. Following the release of the debut EP, Buds, Dobson relocated to sunny Los Angeles and began work on material that would become Big Air???s first full-length, released in 2015 on Forged Artifacts. Recorded to tape in his bungalow in Echo Park, Don???t Care builds on the kinetic energy of the debut EP, while adding denser arrangements, headier atmosphere, and a broader palette of tones. Byrddogs began with a room full of beautiful instruments without enough people to play them. Despite this small inconvenience, Sean Farrell and Travis Merrill couldn???t see any reason why they couldn???t learn how to play all of them, and so they practiced. For months and months on end they smoked, slept, and practiced. They played alone, they played together, they played horn-guitar-drum-piano-wind-bass-beats. In short, they played all the time. Slowly, but surely, they progressed, and before long a little collection of songs was born. Trav and Sean took the next logical step and recorded them in the basement, but once they finished recording they realized that they might need some help playing these songs live. The problem was they were addicted to switching instruments, so they had to find someone who could keep up with this swinging lifestyle. Luckily for them, Sean had gone to school with a shredding, get-down-delilah sort of motherfucker named Drew Sanders. The two invited Drew over for a jam one day, and as soon as it was all over, the three knew that the trio was something special, and so they set to practicing again. For the past year, the three have continued to improve their chops and expand their catalog. The band???s sound has naturally progressed to a happy mix of each members influences, some overlapping and some very disparate. There is a taste of Sabbath, Louie Armstrong, Slowdive, Mogwai, the Dickies, and Elliott Smith. Byrddogs plays because they truly love making and preforming music for anyone who will appreciate it. And to rock. Always to rock.
