  • The Tank 312 West 36th Street New York, NY, 10018 United States (map)


Clownfish ("Best of Fringe", Nugget Fringe) is an hour of comedy and storytelling exploring sex, gender, identity, and other black-and-white topics. Trevor Wade (they/them;The Moth StorySlam winner) mixes tales of misguided affection and botched romance with cutting observations about this divide we've erected between "man" and "woman". If you've ever felt like you didn't fit in the boxes, if your option was not listed on the drop-down menu, if you want to learn more about this national conversation we're having about gender, if you know what all the letters in LGBTQIA stand for, if you had no idea we were up to that many letters, if you're open to a new point of view, if you want to trick a bigot, if you're looking for a unicorn, come see this show. It's honest as all get-out, glam as Hell, as weird as America, and also happens to rhyme. I promise not to disappoint (unless you're my dad).

Jori Phillips grew up on a rock off the coast of BC, Canada. Now she gets her rocks off doing comedy in the US of Eh?! As the whitest immigrant you know, Jori brings her unique, small-town perspective to this country, as she works out what it is to be an outsider, and a human being. She likes to make dolls in her free time.
