A larp about stand-up comendians by Andreas Dørum.
"Are you trying to be funny?" is a larp about stand-up comedians waiting backstage at a venue where they have regular performances. They are good friends - and bitter rivals. Here, they try out jokes at each other. They laugh together, hyperventilate together, and sometimes cry together.
We will follow them at an emotional rollercoaster before, after and between their shows. We will explore the strange, personal and possibly dark sider of humor. We will play, joke, take notes on napkins and hopefully laugh.
