A highly emotive young woman uses comedy to cope.
This show will be performed in front a live audience at the Santa Monica Playhouse. Covid safety protocols in effect on the day of performance will be observed. A streaming option is available upon request.
Bethany Vee has devoted herself to a career as a professional comedian. Getting where she wants to be has not been without its challenges, however. As the title of the show implies, she experiences a full range of feelings, sometimes too many at once. Especially, there’s Shame and Guilt, tied in with growing up lesbian in a home with a divorced mother who is a homophobe (who later evolves). There’s young romance, which comes with its very own special angst. And there’s adult romance, which is even more difficult to navigate. Some of Bethany’s coping mechanisms involve the intake of substances both licit and illicit, which creates other problems.
Bethany is accompanied on her life journey by two special companions: Debbie, her inner voice who is the Demon of self-criticism and Edgar, Debbie’s opposite, the inner voice of rationality and calm. Naturally, they conflict. One fine day, Bethany believes she’s found a soul mate. Will her love be reciprocated?
Bethany Vee has a decade of experience as a comedian, in stand-up, improvisation and sketch. For all of the trials and challenges she undergoes in her multi-character, multimedia performance piece I Have Too Many Feelings, the show also contains an abundance of humor. Bethany is a comedian and, most of all, she wants you to laugh.
Bethany Vee spent her early life in Pittsburgh, then graduated from Slippery Rock University. She trained in comedy at Upright Citizens Brigade and The Groundlings, then accumulated credits on stage (Dark North at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Lady Farts at the Hollywood fringe Festival, more), independent films, and television (TMI Hollywood).
Jessica Lynn Johnson directs and develops I Have Too Many Feelings. Acclaimed both as a solo performer and as a director of solo artists, she is the founder of the company Soaring Solo Studios and a recipient of the Best National Solo Artist Award. Her directing credits include Unemployed Finally, The Mermaid Who Learned How to Fly, 365 Days of Crazy, Triangles Are My Favorite Shape, Bully-mia, Not My Show, Answers Outta The Blue, Dear Yoko, and more.
