Mary Mack and the Easter Funny: Comedy & Music CD Release Party

April 20
6:30 p.m.
Comedy, Music

Mary Mack is worried about coming home for Easter. “I don’t know why I get so stressed out, but I do,” she says. “So I figured having a big party the night before Easter with people I really like spending time with would make that better.” That party has taken the form of a funny, strange, and possibly sacrilegious comedy and music show at the Eagles Club. She’s calling this a CD-release party, although the album in question was recorded nearly two years ago. Now it’ll be available through all major streaming distributors, but her chances of making much money on it are slim. “I think you get paid like $0.0000006 for every stream,” she laughs. “But I guess it’s time to send this album out into the world. It’s like sending my kid off to school.” The show itself promises to be weird and fun. In addition to sets from comedians Tiffany Norton and Comrade Tripp, there will be poetry by local punk-poet Paul Dickinson, music from the Goo Goo Mucks, and appearances by both the Pope and the Easter Bunny. “I’m going to marry the Pope!” Mack says excitedly. “But the Easter Bunny might show up and cause a scene. I mean, I am already married, but that’s not a big deal.” Jell-O shots and Busch Light specials will be in full effect all night long, and there will even be an Easter egg hunt for everyone in attendance, making this equal parts comedy show and terrifying Easter service on acid.
