Show performance is unique. A constantly changing cast of writers and comics
tell four short, extremely personal stories that will make you laugh,
possibly make you think, and almost certainly make you glad you don't live
with them. But listen closely, because only three of these people are telling
the truth. The fourth is making it all up.
stories have been told, all four performers return to the stage and defend
their stories while the audience rakes them over the coals with a
fact-finding question and answer session, refereed by the host.
audience member casts a ballot and when the Liar is revealed, the perceptive
geniuses who have guessed correctly walk away with a prize T-shirt amid a
bitter chorus of "Congratulations, Einstein," from the empty-handed
SEEK TRUTH. WIN A PRIZE
Call it an unreality show.The Liar Show has taken the art of deception to theaters,
cabarets and cultural centers and was called “A Winner” (The Scotsman) and
received 4 Stars during a month-long run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Liar has featured New
Yorker Magazine contributor Andy Borowitz, Mike Daisey, called
"The master storyteller" by the NY Times, and former Bill Clinton
speechwriter, Mark Katz in addition to Comedy Central personalities, film
directors, lapsed Mormons with a bone to pick with the Almighty, and even an
NYPD gang squad detective.
At each show,
performers tell short personal stories, but listen carefully, because one of
these people is making it all up. Interrogate the cast and expose the Liar to
win an unbelievable prize.
But as The
Washington Post wrote
of our show: “Prizes mean nothing compared with the sweet victory of being
recognized as the savviest people in the room.”
