Just The Funny, Miami’s favorite improv and sketch comedy company, and five-time winner of the New Times Best of Miami presents: “The Big Show,” the show where Whose Line Is It Anyway meets Saturday Night Live, featuring sketches, music and improvisational comedy based on suggestions from the audience.
Storm Large has been making a name for herself as one of the singers of Pink Martini and on stage at Carnegie Hall, performing Kurt Weill with the Detroit Symphony. But it is with her loyal and fearless band, Le Bonheur, that she has been grabbing audiences by the lapels and refusing to let go.
Storm may appear to be a six-foot tattooed pinup girl, but with a voice that goes from a velvety purr to a mighty Valkyrie in a single phrase, she is a vocalist whose iconoclastic talent defies the laws of nature. Large sings the American songbook, Broadway tear-jerkers, rock goddess anthems and some of her own gorgeous originals all delivered with a fierce personal commitment. You will be swept away by the voice, beauty and visceral talent of Storm Large, an artist who truly lives up to her name.
