An Evening of Conscious Comedy with Swami Beyondananda and Teresa Tudury
Tickets on-line or at Music Coop in downtown Ashland
“Lose Weightiness Now! Yes, in these stressful times … well, weightiness just seems to pile on, doesn’t it? Just a few days without laughing, and before long you’re suffering from irregularhilarity, on track for a full-blown case of humorrhoids! This doesn’t have to happen. Swami Beyondananda, the Cosmic Comic whose favorite yoga pose is tongue-in-cheek, will help you lose weightiness through heart-opening laughter. It’s a scientific fact: Levity is the best way to overcome gravity. You’ll leave lighter and brighter – or the Swami will double your karma back!”
In the course of nearly twenty-five years of purveying cosmic comedy and healing laughter, Swami (aka Steve Bhaerman) has had a successful, long-running monthly column, Ask The Swami, has written four books (Driving Your Own Karma … When You See A Sacred Cow, Milk It for All It’s Worth … Duck Soup for the Soul … Swami for Precedent: A Seven-Step Plan to Heal the Body Politic and Cure Electile Dysfunction), and produced a half a dozen comedy cassettes (sorry, not available on 8-track) and CDs.
“Teresa Tudury is an undiscovered gem, boasting scads of talent and a command of both language and music, which she demonstrates in ample portions. Like a cross between Tracey Ullman and the early Bette Midler, an evening with Tudury is part comedy show, part sensitive singer-songwriter concert and part cabaret act—and all immensely enjoyable…In her zany between-song patter Tudury is so uninhibited she makes Robin Williams seem restrained…. Plus, Tudury can certainly sing. Possessed of a deep, sultry voice which she dresses in heavy blues phrasing and adorns with generous swatches of vibrato, Tudury evoked every nuance out of her quirky novelty tunes and belted out her off-beat torch songs.” Steven Libowitz – Santa Barbara News Press
