About Art of Bleeding:

“The Art of Bleeding is a uniquely non-accredited educational institution offering powerful and ego-destabilizing lessons in health and safety. Our presentations (often staged from an ambulance) utilize live performance, film, puppets, music, animation, and thinly veiled medical fetishism to explore the topic of catastrophic health emergencies within the framework of children’s television programming.”

Though I digress. More about
The Last Saturday of October!

“This Halloween weekend, The Art of Bleeding will once again transform the Steve Allen Theater parking lot into a ghoulish carnival of entertaining catastrophes featuring a SPECTACULARLY REAL MULTI-VEHICLE CAR-CRASH TABLEAU.

Against a smoldering backdrop of twisted cars, you’ll have the opportunity to hear TRUE STORIES OF MEDICAL HORRORS and ACCIDENTS from a rotating line-up* of storytellers including MARGARET CHO, ANDY DICK, JIM TURNER, TOBY HUSS, EDDIE PEPITONE, SELENE LUNA, DON BOLLES, STEPHEN HOLMAN, CLINT CATALYST, MICHELLE CARR, KIM FOWLEY, DUKEY FLYSWATTER, DANNY SHORAGO, KIM STODEL, BIENO SVENGALI, and more.

Providing dubious educational counterbalance to these tales of trauma will be THE ART OF BLEEDING’S “Magic Ambulance Theater,” a tragically misguided children’s show featuring gore-drenched actors, pedantic Safety Ape, bickering robot, and an ample array of attendant nurses in less-than-ample wardrobe.

FEMALE BLOOD WRESTLING, and a frighteningly live sound-performance installation by the enigmatic medical miracles of BOUNCEHAUSEN round out the evening.

And by all means, feel free to come in your Halloween costume! Doctors, nurses, and ESPECIALLY accident victims encouraged. Prizes for outstanding achievements related to our theme.”

(Again, there’s a high likelihood this show may not be appropriate for children.)

*Please note: this event takes place three separate evenings.  I’ve listed the the night in which I’m a participant, for reasons that should be obvious— but hey! Maybe you’re not super-saturated with information on a daily basis, nagging like a steady succession of pop-up ads programmed to auto-start with a You-Will-Watch-Me insistence so gauche, your keyboard locks, a carcinogenic hue plagues your screen and sweeps it dark as

Oh, #whatever

I’m sure any of the nights will be fun.  I just hope to see you when I’ll be there, so we can . . .


Insofar as caloric value?  Of that I’m not certain
