ASMR-inspired comedy coming to Philadelphia

ASMR Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response UniversityThere has been an abundance of ASMR-inspired art forms including movies, web shows, street dancing, commercials, music, performance art, poetry, CGI animation, games, and fan fiction.

What about live comedy?

On Saturday April 6th, 2018 at 4:30 pm Rose Luardo and Shannon Fahey will present their ASMR inspired workshop, ASMRrrrRETREAT at Good Good Comedy Theatre (215 N.11th Street Philadelphia, PA).

Luardo & Fahey are Philadelphia-based comedians and artists and their live workshop is inspired by their mutual admiration for ASMR and ASMR artwork.

Together they will take troupes of ASMR YouTube videos and blow them up to outrageous and hilarious proportions. The workshop aims to surprise audience members with odd takes on ASMR triggers.

For example, one may expect to hear a classic trigger of someone eating food, when in reality the pair is smooshing cake in each others faces.

They will use classic breathy ASMR voices to deliver funny descriptive dialogue. The workshop will also feature ASMR comedy videos created by Luardo and Fahey.

Patrons of the workshop will leave with a “meditation pillow” and a personalized ASMR video of their own.

Luardo and Fahey describe their ASMR-inspired comedy as “turning the convention of ASMR on its head and making it wackier than it’s ever been before” they use the unexpected and playful elements of ASMR to entertain and sometimes shock their audience.
