Alex Song presents Supporting Characters

A leading man needs his trusty sidekick, his love interest, his comic relief, his wise sage. That's where supporting characters come in. You know – women, people of color, maybe a queer or two. But what happens when the nice white leading man is nowhere to be found? Can the supporting characters carry a show? Join comedian Alex Song as she and some of New York's funniest and most interesting performers do what Hollywood never asks them to do – be the leads.

With guests:
+Joanna Hausmann (Bill Nye Saves the World, Flama)
+Keisha Zollar (Orange is the New Black, Women Who Kill)
+Matt Gehring (Just For Laughs New Faces: Characters 2017, The Tick)
+Maya Deshmukh (AzN PoP, UCB Maude Night)
+Jon Wan (Kiko and Tuna, UCB Lloyd Night)

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.
