Comprised of her signature story-driven stand-up and scored by sensual home-made pop, Erin Markey: Boner Killer is an intimate musical conversation between what Markey thinks she can’t have and how she’d have it if she could. Driven by Whitney Houston’s lesbian mythologies, Europe™, and a Pretty Woman accident, Markey sacrifices her own life to transform personal humiliations into naked feminist hope. She is accompanied by a small music outfit and directed by Ellie Heyman.
Recently named one of "Brooklyn's 50 Funniest People" (Brooklyn Magazine), Erin Markey makes music, shows and videos. She has shown work at the Under the Radar Festival, New Museum, PS 122, New York City Comedy Festival, Ars Nova, Lincoln Center Director's Lab, UCBeast, Bard Spiegeltent, Tasmania's Festival of Voices, San Francisco Film Society and at Joe's Pub at The Public Theater. She is the recipient of a 2014 Franklin Furnace Grant, the 2012 NYFA Cutting Edge Artist Award, and the Eliot Norton Award for Outstanding Performance in 2013. She is a company member of Obie Award winning Half Straddle. Her most recent work, A Ride On The Irish Cream (co composed with Emily Bate and Kenny Mellman), will tour to A.R.T. (Boston), PhillyFringe (Philadelphia), and the OnEdge Festival (Chicago) in February/March of 2017.
