The Full Moon Show: A Tom Murrin/Alien Comic Invention Presents John Pizza’s You Can’t Grow Down

  I recently had a big birthday. One of those nice round number ones, the kind that officially takes you squarely from one decade and tosses you up a bracket to the next age tier. You’ve experienced it. If not you will. Sure as the full moon and the bones in your body, you will.

Join John Pizza for You Cant Grow Downa reflection on the universal experience of growing up, inwards, diagonalwise, and all around.

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.
