The Full Moon Show: A Tom Murrin/Alien Comic Invention
Streaming on the Howl! Homepage

“The year is … 2035? It’s Monday? Saturday? Thursday? I’ve been holed-up in an empty art gallery in the abandoned Chelsea Arts District NYC for perhaps eons… my stomach in knots, at the end of my rope, writing poetry. How’re you?”

Join John Pizza for another Full Moon performance/art film called,DISTANCE. It’s a piece all about the at-home vibes we’ve all been experiencing. The fears, the poetry, the distance… How close is too close is too close is too close?

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 houses the Collection of Tom Murrin, aka as the Alien Comic, 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.
