Written and performed by Vahe Berberian.
A Wet Paint Production. Directed by Vigen Khachatourian. Produced by Christina Shirinyan.
1 hour, 30 minutes. In Armenian.
Yete is the fifth and the most personal of Berberian’s monologues. The master of finding comedy in social, and cultural topics, now finds humor in anxiety. Berberian talks about anything and everything that gives him anxiety, including movies, death, politics, marriage and social media. Yete is powerful, timely and hilarious.
Berberian Opened Yete on June 6, 2013, at Beyond the Stars Palace, and after a three month run he took it to a few dozen cities all over the world.
Are You Ready to Laugh? Asks Vahe Berberian
Are you ready to let loose and laugh? If you are, then you have to watch Vahe Berberian’s latest monologue Yete, which will be performed on Thursdays starting June 6, at Beyond the Stars Palace in Glendale, CA.
Berberian is a master of finding the comedy in personal, social, and cultural topics– in this case, he finds the humor in anxiety.
Yete is Berberian’s fifth monologue after Yevayln, Nayev, Dagaveen, and Sagayn. Following 20 sold out shows in Los Angeles, his Sagayn tour took him to Yerevan, Beirut, Istanbul, Paris, Sydney, Cyprus, Geneva and a dozen other cities.
Four years have passed since Sagayn and Berberian is thrilled about his new monologue. “I love writing, painting and directing, but being alone on that stage is a completely different sensation. I feel empowered, because there’s nothing more difficult than getting up on a stage and trying to make people laugh for an hour and a half. If you fail, you can’t blame anyone else for your failure and you’ll be crushed, but if you succeed, you feel exhilarated,” says Berberian.
As in previous shows, the audience can sit comfortably around tables while mingling and enjoying a cocktail or two from the bar. Considering that its first-come, first -served seating, guests should arrive before doors open at 7:30 p.m.
Beyond the Stars Palace is located at 4171/2 N. Brand Blvd. Glendale, CA. Grab a drink at 7:30 p.m. and laugh at 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $40. For reservations please call (818)667-7993 or visit www.itsmyseat.com/yete
