We’re coming out of our tunnels, up from the underground, out of the darkness into the summertime light, and now…it’s time to socialize. Like the wings and legs of bugs, I feel wiggly and restless.

You’re asking me to party with others. My exoskeleton crawls, and I’m restlessly shifting from foot to foot but always with a smile across my mandibles. John Pizza

Join John Pizza for Infested, a little post-quarantine poem about self-courage and the insects inside our guts that wiggle in protest.

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.
