Description

Funny Stories About Pain is a one-hour journey through some decidedly not-funny events in the life of comedian Troy Alan, which would amount to a depressing Ted Talk if Troy couldn’t write jokes. The show will delve into the less sinister trails of Troy's life such as breaking his ankle on the subway, an unfortunate yoga wear incident, the death of a high school friend and culminates with the day he was told the truth about his father. It’s said that tragedy plus time equals comedy. Come see if that equation is correct.
