Shon Arieh-Lerer combines comedy, street dance, fake philosophy, and clowning. Zen monks have described his highly-physical works as “total mind body transformation” and “Is it still comedy if it kind of breaks your heart?”

The show will not live up to its description.

+ Special Guests include:
+ From The Mutant$:
The Ghost of new york (the OG of Freeform Bruk Up and Possession-style dance)
+ Parker Denton (National Scandal, Delusions of Grandeur)
+ Eliza Bent
+ Lucy Cottrell

Shon Arieh-Lerer is known as The Genius of Comedy. He makes videos for Slate and writes humor pieces for the New Yorker. He is a street-dance disciple of Ghost, O.G. of the Possession style of Bruk Up. Arieh-Lerer serves as the artistic director of the experimental comedy group His Majesty, the Baby, and has performed regularly at the PIT, the UCB, Dixon Place, the Duplex and other venues. He is also the world’s most recognized living translator of Yindjibarndi poetry, (published in World Literature Today, Poetry International, and other magazines).

Fridays on Ice is Ice Factory's late night performance salon. Featuring artists creating work not usually seen in downtown theatre spaces, but more typically found in nightclubs, bars, and private apartments, each evening is individually hosted by an impresario of this alternative storytelling community, and features cutting-edge micro-works by some of NYC’s cagiest short-form theater-makers.
