Brain Champagne: Clever Comedy for the Smart Mind (sm)
Website of the feminist male comedian Shaun Eli, including comedic essays, material he has written for late-night television, his biography and performance schedule.
Boston audiences will have the chance to experience a performance that’s unlike anything they’ve seen before when BROAD COMEDY, a unique theatrical experience, plays at the Stuart Street Playhouse this March! Winner of Best of Vancouver Fringe Fest 2005, it’s Jon Stewart meets “Saturday Night Live” meets The Vagina Monologues.
They’re savvy, irreverent, and they’re probably being followed by Karl Rove in a big black Hummer. These are the women who skewer the Bush White House with the crowd-pleasing favorite: “The United States Extreme Right Wing Cheerleading Squad.” Their newest hit lampoons the Teen Abstinence Movement: “I’m Saving My Hymen For Jesus.”
In BROAD COMEDY, nothing is sacred, except a bright and unflinching look at politicos, women, men, fertilization, corporate shenanigans, and the real desperate housewives of America. Their spicy gumbo of sketches and up-to-the-news-cycle musical numbers include high energy bits like: “The Active Egg” featuring a giant ovum interviewing several sperm for the job, “Russian Immigrant Barbie,” and “Oral Exam,” which finds four mothers on a park bench in deep debate about the nuances of oral sex and their search for a female vocabulary for the woman’s receiving end of this much appreciated procedure.
Broad Comedy is a high-energy, women's sketch, improv and musical satire group. The all-original material is intelligent, witty, and hilarious.
"Nothing is off limits when the women who call themselves 'The Broads' get together... Yuppies beware. New mothers, you will get a ribbing too... A Broad Comedy performance is bound to be funny, for men and women. Filled with social commentary like a spoof of male-sensitivity training or plain 'ol goofy numbers like the forlorn house-wife cleaning to the strains of 'The Nutcracker,' the troupe takes risks that pay off."

the bastard goddess
'the bastard goddess' is the story of three women, mother Prema, daughter Teja and granddaughter Mahima. The story is also about WOMAN. Prema is first under her father's domination, then under her husband and then her son. She is the daughter, the wife the house slave, the passive onlooker as life goes on around her. Teja is the fighter, who tries to fight against the society, fails but fights again in her attempt to end her own suffering. Mahima is the liberator, trying to end all suffering.
But all three women are also one. Teja and Mahima are already inside Prema, struggling to come out, as they had always done throughout history. Teja and Mahima had lived before this, but were always put down by man. Only Prema has been with us always, because she was never a threat to man.
'Bastard' is not a dirty word. Calling an illegitimate child a 'bastard' can never be an insult to that child. If it is an insult, it will only be to the man the who fathered the child. A woman also should have a right to have a child, without legally marrying a man. 'Bastard also means fraudulent, or not genuine.
