October 1, 2020 @ 12:00 am - 11:59 pm
Visit Howlarts.org on Thursday, October 1, 2020 from 12 AM to 11:59 PM to watch the Full Moon Show!
John Pizza performs I Live on the Moon Now—another installment of the Full Moon Show series on Howl TV. Join John Pizza for a new performance video in honor of October’s full Harvest Moon. With a touch of dance, some weird props, and a bit of interstellar space travel, he’ll explore just a few of the reasons for sticking it out here on Earth or throwing in the towel, packing it in, and heading…to the Mooooooon.
“Earth’s cool and all. Actually, Earth’s dope. Earth’s great; it’s just people who suck. Humanity with its inanity. I tried to stick it out. And part of me feels guilty for leaving, but yeah…I live on the Moon now. All my best buds left. One went to L.A. (joke’s on him). One ran away to New Mexico. One of ’ems having a baby down in North Carolina…so I went to the Moon,” the performer says.

John Pizza is a performer, builder, and drawer. He uses trash and thrift-store detritus scrounged in his Brooklyn neighborhood to tell stories and make his shows. He loves the macabre and the mushy sweet. His sculptures are performative, and his performances involve sculptures—an object theatre of weird surprises.
About Tom Murrin and the Full Moon Show
Performance is anything done with purpose and style. —Tom Murrin
Howl! Happening is home to the archive of Tom Murrin, aka the Alien Comic and the Godfather of Performance Art. Every full moon—without fail, paid booking or not, in all seasons and whatever the weather—he performed his Luna Macaroona Full Moon Show. When he had a club date that fell on the full moon, he’d wrangle his friends to perform as guests—pushing the careers of such groundbreaking performers as David Cale, David Sedaris, Amy Sedaris, Blue Man Group, Ethyl Eichelberger, Lisa Kron, and many others. When he didn’t have a club date, he performed on the street for passersby, transforming the pedestrian atmosphere with his madness and magic.
