Jerry Seinfeld will bring his signature observational comedy, along with his billion-dollar self, to the North Charleston Performing Arts Center on March 7, 2019.

Most recently, the 64-year-old comedian has parlayed the unparalleled success of his eponymous '90s sitcom into a culturally relevant, bite-sized interview show, Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee.

The series was picked up by Netflix last year, and its tenth season premiered over the summer. His latest stand-up special, Jerry Before Seinfeld, was also released on Netflix in September 2017.

The show starts at 7 p.m.

Tickets go on sale via Ticketmaster on Fri. Oct. 26 at 10 a.m. They start at $49.

Paul Cristina debuts new work, Down Into Folds, at Beresford Studios on Oct. 26

Investigating the human condition

Posted by Connelly Hardaway on Fri, Oct 19, 2018 at 9:23 AM

  • Paul Cristina
Beresford Studios and the Charleston Arts Festival present Down Into Folds, a solo exhibition of new paintings and drawings from local artist Paul Cristina. Down Into Folds opens next Fri. Oct. 26, with a reception from 6-8 p.m. The works will be on display through Nov. 25.

In an artist's statement, Cristina says, "Gathering together oil paintings, charcoal drawings and dense mixed-media works on canvas, this exhibition focuses on the continued use of layered and manipulated paper materials as a means of investigating the various truths and dimensions of the human condition."
When we first talked to Cristina two years ago, he was working out of a cavernous, dimly lit upper King Street studio, a newly full-time artist creating large works on canvas. At the time he said, "I want to create art that creates a high enough level of inquiry or intrigue that leads us to having a conversation."

Since then, Cristina has shown his work frequently around town, spoken at Pecha Kucha, and hosted a solo show in Lake City (home of ArtFields) this summer.

When: Fri., Oct. 26, 5-8 p.m. and Oct. 26-Nov. 25

Images of breast cancer survivors grace Charleston galleries in 'The Grace Project'

Inspired by goddesses

Posted by Connelly Hardaway on Fri, Oct 19, 2018 at 9:07 AM

  • Provided
The Grace Project, a series of portraits of women who bear the scars from breast cancer, will be on display in three Charleston galleries next weekend, Oct. 25-28. The portraits, from photographer Charise Isis, highlight survivors of breast cancer who are often overlooked, underrepresented, and underserved.

On the opening evening, Thurs. Oct. 25, Isis will walk through each gallery with viewers, starting with the Cecil Byrne Gallery (5-6 p.m.), then heading to Revealed Gallery (6-7 p.m.), and ending at the John C. Doyle Gallery (7-8 p.m.)

  • Provided
Each gallery features portraits of one type of breast cancer survivor who is often overlooked: The Cecil Byrne Gallery features portraits of women of color; the Revealed Gallery will have portraits of 'Metavivors' (Stage IV cancer patients); and the Doyle Gallery will display the Athena Division β€” women in the military.

The Grace Project was recently featured on the Today show, as part of a special Pink Power series during breast cancer awareness month.

Isis has photographed almost 400 women around the country for this project, and she hopes to photograph 400 more, representing the approximately 800 women who are diagnosed with breast cancer in the United States every day. Isis' Grace Project is inspired by Hellenistic Goddess sculptures that have "survived the trauma of history."

If you would like to contribute to the Grace Project, you can donate online.

Iliza Shlesinger, one of this year's Charleston Comedy Fest headliners, makes her way back to the Lowcountry next May as part of her Elder Millenial Tour. Tickets for the show, held on Fri. May 3 at 7 p.m., go on sale tomorrow, Fri. Oct. 19 at 10 a.m.

When we spoke to Shlesinger earlier this year, she told us about important stuff, like how to become a party goblin. It's simple really, "You don't become one, you have one and she enables you to text your ex, dump out your purse on a busy dance floor, decide you can do five Fire Ball shots in a minute, dance on a table, negotiate with a cop. She comes out when she wants and you never see her coming." Touche.


Last November Shlesinger released her first book, Girl Logic: The Genius and the Absurdity, a collection of essays and observations on a woman's approach to friendship, singlehood, and relationships. Elder Millennial is Shlesinger's fourth Netflix stand-up special. Shlesinger has headlined multiple comedy festivals, toured through the Middle East and Europe, and is the only female (and youngest comedian) to hold the title of NBC's Last Comic Standing.

When: Fri., May 3, 7 p.m.

Itinerant Literate hosts author of 'Amongst the Liberal Elite,' Elly Lonon

The Road Trip Exploring Societal Inequities Solidified by Trump

Posted by Connelly Hardaway on Thu, Oct 18, 2018 at 4:03 PM

On Thurs. Nov. 1 at 6 p.m., Itinerant Literate hosts author, columnist, and political satirist Elly Lonon for a book signing with Mt. Pleasant Town Council member G.M. Whitley, celebrating Lonon's new graphic novel, Amongst the Liberal Elite: The Road Trip Exploring Societal Inequities Solidified by Trump.

Lonon's graphic novel is based on her McSweeney's column of the same name. Amongst the Liberal Elite follows romantic partners Alex and Michael as they travel cross-country to better understand how Trump won the election. Naturally, arguments ensue. Lonon's first post-Trump column, "Emergency Preparedness Amongst the Liberal Elite," is evocative of the post-election fear many of us liberal elites, did in fact, feel. As Alexandra says, "We need go bags, Michael."

Now you can read all of those pertinent (perhaps too on-the-nose) pieces in one handy collection, illustrated by Joan Reilly, whose work has been featured in the comics newspaper RESIST! and the online comics anthology promoting political action, Draw the Line.

You can preorder Amongst the Liberal Elite on Itinerant Literate's online store, or pick up a book the day of the event.

Event Details Elly Lonon

4824 Chateau Ave.

When: Thu., Nov. 1, 6 p.m.
