Laughter Explodes out of ACT’s Central Heating Lab

A Four Part Comedy Cornucopia Series May 4, 11, 18, 25

Seattle, WA – April 24, 2008 – The innovative Central Heating Lab initiative, which launched at the beginning of ACT’s 2008 season, is thrilled to announce a four-part comedy series to take place on consecutive Sunday evenings in the month of May in the Bullitt Cabaret space. The Comedy Cornucopia series falls under the “Long Term Project” category of The Central Heating Lab and includes many of Seattle’s funniest standup comedians, short filmmakers, and performance artists. Comedy Cornucopia is one of the countless activities exploding out of ACT that opens doors for artists and inches the organization one step closer to its mission to become a true art center. Justin Freet, a collaborative partner for RAWSTOCK, explains how the Central Heating Lab is crucial to his development as an artist, "In any artistic community, there inevitably manifests a struggle between following your muse and settling into established formulas that feel ‘safe’. The Central Heating Lab provides an eclectic mix of collaborative partners and also allows us as artists to feed the muse; to not just allow, but encourage fringe filmmakers, dancers and actors to get gonzo."

Tickets for the Comedy Cornucopia series are available at the ACT Ticket Office, 700 Union Street , Downtown Seattle, (206) 292-7676 or online at www.acttheatre.org.
