FringeArts Map

In the spirit of classic comedy albums by artists such as Lily Tomlin and Richard Pryor, The Bored Identity is a collection of characters and songs by the underground’s most beloved subversive comedic performance artist. Dynasty Handbag takes on the self care industrial complex, murderous misogyny and the horrors of heteronormativity by deftly moving in and out of a crackpot slew of characters in ridiculously imaginative scenarios.

A lobster butler takes us on a tour of his boss’s 80’s mansion, a southern belle meets the grim reaper, an obnoxious meditation crosses paths with a mouse escaping the industrial dregs of Birmingham, and a victorian queen outruns a witch hunt on a hoverboard. Song’s include ode to male privilege When A Man Has an Idea and the consumer driven climate disaster electro banger Vat Do U Vant for Bwekfas? Dynasty Handbag will be performing all the tracks on The Bored Identity along with her signature mean spirited stand up and social commentary.

“Outrageously smart, grotesque and innovative.” — The New Yorker

“Dynasty Handbag is a force of nature.” — Jack Black

“Supremely subversive and obscenely funny.” — Time Out NY
