All My Friends Are Depressed! With Tiny Baruch!
Baruch Porras Hernandez
All My Friends Are Depressed With Tiny Baruch! In this solo show, written, performed and illustrated by Baruch Porras Hernandez we see the world through the small black doodled eyes of Tiny Baruch a small yet mighty, sassy, and optimistic drawing version of the local writer, performer, and stand up comedian. Since Tiny Baruch debut on bigger Baruch’s Instagram page, the comic has made people laugh, cry, find moments of joy and small blessings in a world that seems to be getting darker and darker for queers, immigrants, and people of color. This show will take you through a visual journey, with illustrations, comics, storytelling, stand up, and singing on how to survive without losing your mind from resistance fatigue. Tiny Baruch reminds us to not give up, and eat all the donuts you want!
