In his intimate debut hour “SILLY BOY” Rich Hardisty takes us on a journey through the highs and the lows of his unusual life.
Expect anecdotes and observations about mental institutions, missing dads and mania, all from his warm/inquisitive/childlike perspective.
In the show Rich tries his best to convey what mental illness really looks and feels like.
But you won’t find any self pity or loathing here…this is a celebration of the beauty and silliness of it all and the interesting, hilarious and sometimes shocking things his brain is capable of doing (whether he wants it to or not.)
The show culminates in a 10 minute performance piece using a projection, where Rich attempts to show what a manic episode looks and feels like inside his head.
Raw, open and honest but most importantly...FUNNY!
