Going Up with Sara Schaefer

February 10 @ 9:00 pm - 10:30 pm


Sara Schaefer brings her critically acclaimed solo show to her hometown for one night only!

In her solo comedy show, Sara Schaefer teaches you how to unlock your potential in this fake(?) seminar about defeating your hecklers, developing your TS (thick skin) and achieving total perfect comedy success. No matter your walk of life, you can make your dreams come true simply by Going Up!

Going Up is, on its surface, a hilarious recruitment into the cult of comedy. But at its heart, the show is a bold confrontation of a toxic system, an examination of what it means to be a creative person in today’s world, and Sara’s own reckoning with the tiny voice in her head that tells her she’s not good enough. Combining sharp joke writing, scathing satire, original music and incredibly detailed handmade miniatures, Sara takes the audience on a wholly original journey through the darkness and into the light. Come see what the New York Times called “a feat of comedy.”

In 2023, Sara performed the show in cities all over the world and is excited to bring it to her hometown for the first time!
