Since 2009, The Big Bad Armo Show has garnered a huge following with its witty and hilarious sketch pieces about the Armenian-American experience. The show has played Off-Broadway three times and now returns to its home at The Colony Theater. With a vast array of off-beat characters, illuminating cultural commentary, outlandish improv and down-right funny vignettes, the Big Bad Armo Show sheds laughter and insight on this community that has planted its marble column roots in the “hills of the Glendale”. From being the first nation to adopt Christianity to Kim Kardahsian, the show holds up a fun house mirror to the 10,000 years of cultural idiosyncrasies that have made-up the Armenian diaspora. After 12 years of staging 9 different installments of the show and over 100 sketches written, featuring a host of brilliantly portrayed characters, the cast and crew are ready to poke fun at all the seriousness that engulfed the world since 2020. Written and created by N.E.A. grant recipient Lory Tatoulian, the LA Weekly wrote: “Playwright Lory Tatoulian turns this confusion into comedy gold in the Big Bad Armo Show. If anybody knows the holidays, it’s the Armenians — celebrating Christmas since 301 A.D.”
