The Work Out Room (Baron Vaughn)

About the Show


Fielding Stage



Join us on the Fielding stage throughout the season as Geva’s incoming Artist in Residence, Baron Vaughn, curates a new long-form comedy series entitled The Work Out Room.

Comedian Baron Vaughn curates this incredible and sure-to-be-hilarious series, where comics work out new material and build their next shows. The audience is a collaborative witness in the creation of something brand new, and what you find funny (or not) one night will impact the material presented the next night – and if you attend more than one show, you’re sure to see quite different performances! Come help them make their next big hit!
