S&M Comedy Presents is a monthly late-night series of creative live shows conceived by Jamie Sanderson and Steve Marek in order to challenge comedians and bring variety to the Phoenix Comedy Scene. Holding these performances at a small, inexpensive locally-owned theater enables the concepts to be fully appreciated by a diverse audience without the distracting drunkards at a bar show or the overwhelming cost of a night at a comedy club.
“Goodbye Cruel World” is an evening for audiences to enjoy a guilty laugh and an uncomfortable squirm or two, as comics get onstage to unabashedly share their own suicide notes and eulogies. Comics frequently like to delve into the dark abysses of the human psyche and hold up a mirror to society’s most dreaded taboos. With “Goodbye Cruel World,” S&M invites the most dreaded of those taboos to hold that mirror up to our comedians. Performers less willing to wander too far into their own black night can write a raunchy, revealing suicide note for a loathed celebrity or a final ‘fuck you’ eulogy for a nefarious dictator. We like to think of this show as an opportunity for comedians to truly let their darkness shine. Ah, suicide and comedians- together like chocolate and peanut butter.
