Sophie Santos...is Codependent
After going through a breakup, Sophie Santos butts heads and belts it out with their personified OCD. Sophie thought they had everything: a life in Brooklyn, a book deal before the age of thirty, and their soulmate of four years. When the pandemic forces Sophie and their girlfriend, Lily, to move NEXT DOOR to Lily’s parents, Lily gets a job two days later... in Pennsylvania. Tormented by the “space” between the two, Sophie’s personified OCD reappears and supercharges the codependency imploding the relationship. Whoops. Co-Written and Directed by Kimberly Peirce.

Desperate to “win” their girlfriend back, Sophie hires a life coach on With My Ex Again dot net who explains the way to get back with an ex is to become the best version of yourself. Sophie and OCD travel together toward Sophie’s new life, butting heads and belting out tunes as Sophie learns to love being alone (and maybe their OCD, too).

“A fun and powerful show. Santos is a fantastic performer. OCD is truly the highlight of the show, with Santos playing an antagonistic frat boy who insists on doing rituals in order to ensure that Santos’ loved ones will not die.” - Broadway World ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

“A breakup saga bubbling with Bo Burnham-esque panache, Sophie Santos unpacks codependency in a raucous musical comedy. OCD serves as both adversary & mentor, lighting a path to self-acceptance. An inventive, self-aware & deeply resonant portrayal.” - Fringe Biscuit ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

A Terrible Show for Terrible People
A Terrible Show for Terrible People is a physical comedy show with 1 performer and only 2 spoken words. It is suitable for perverts, feminists and your mom (not mutually exclusive). It's Mr. Bean if he were a sexy lady. Fest magazine described it as "Benny Hill meets surprisingly friendly sex dungeon." And one audience member proclaimed, "Well, that was a fetish I didn't know I had." Warning: There are scenes of a sexual nature and some audience participation.

A Terrible Show received the Edinburgh Fringe 2023 Total Sell-Out laurel after selling out every night in its 23-show run. It also won Fringiest Show at the 2023 Orlando Fringe Winter Mini-Fest, Best Comedy at the 2022 Hollywood Fringe Festival and Craziest Solo Show at the 2019 Crazy Woke Asians Solo Performance Festival. The show has toured nationally from Second City Hollywood's Los Angeles Diversity in Comedy Festival to The Brick's NY Clown Theatre Festival. In late spring of 2024, A Terrible Show will be making its first UK tour.

"It’s bat-sh*t crazy, outre, and ingenious… this sexually charged force of nature holds her audience captive (willingly), and takes them on quite the adventure.”
- The Quintessential Review

“Clearly an expert clown… The show is dirty in a way that does not make you feel gross afterwards… cheeky but sweet… you will be giggling the whole time. It is safe to say you never will have seen a show like this before.”
- EdFringeReview

Created and performed by Bonnie He. Produced by Bonnie He and James Carroll. Directed by Bruce Allen. For #Terrible updates follow @aterribleshow on Instagram, X (Formerly Twitter) and TikTok.
