5/22/22, Sunday: The Secret Life of Death podcast special presentation

Our favorite professional archaeologist, fun media producer, and all-around swell person, Gail Golec, will debut an infotaining multimedia presentation.

Gail’s archaeological career has principally focused on the Middle Connecticut River Valley of New Hampshire and Vermont. She’s a born-and-raised New Englander who grew up among the back-road remains and ruins of the past, inspiring her to become a full-fledged Cemetery Nerd in a region that’s ripe with old burying grounds and rich history. She holds a degree in anthropology from Mercyhurst College, where she received significant training in forensic anthropology and zooarchaeology. Working for the New York State Museum, she analyzed human skeletal remains for NAGPRA repatriations, and has extensive archaeological field experience.

More details coming.

Ed Smyth: absurdist comedian

BELLOWS FALLS — Comedian Ed Smyth serves up a nonstop absurdist silly-string of brain-twisted characters and bits. His effervescent performances with adult-friendly ingredients and family-friendly language have been described as “too goofy for adults and too highbrow for kids.” Ignoring the sensible rules of comedy, he creates something the world desperately needs, whether the world knows it or not. This is not run-of-the-mill observational comedy.

A member of the Union of Concerned But Preoccupied Scientists, Ed Smyth has been a regular at the Finger Lakes Comedy Festival since 2016, and performed a weeklong show at Rochester Fringe. He is a friend to all.

Suggested $5+ donation at the door for Ed. October 30, 2022 at 7:00.

Seating is limited. Performances are recorded and filmed. No bar or kitchen, the stage is the mission; snacks by donation. Stage 33 Live is an industrial-rustic listening room in a former factory hosting local, regional, and national performers in an intimate setting.
