It’s Christi, B*tch!

Saturday, November 4 @ 8PM


Written and Performed by Christi Chiello


Have you ever taken a bite of a cupcake only to find it’s full of razor blades? That’s Christi, b*tch! Half parts cuteness and savagery, Christi Chiello’s debut solo show It’s Christi, B*tch! will take you on a fervent journey into the horny life of the girl behind the cartoonish voice. On an endless quest for “human connection,” Christi explores the breakUPs, breakDOWNs and breakTHROUGHs that have made her… Christi, B*tch!
