Dates, Times and Prices


Colleen constantly fails captcha tests and has often been accused of being more machine than human. She is freaked out by AI so she built a robot to determine if she is funny. She doesn't understand her logic either. The Chicago comedian/sentient ray of sunshine has training from Second City and iO theatres. Her Fringe debut is a sharp gossip-filled show about heroism, insecurity, and the ever-present fear of being replaced by a robot. Expect salacious gossip, baffling technology and unrelenting optimism. Come to laugh, stay to impress future robot overlords.
