People often forget that comedy can be incisive and subversive without also being racist, sexist and homophobic. But Beth Lapides' UnCabaret events championed a new wave of comedians who weren't merely careerist and sophomoric but also infused their work with personality and — even more daring — vulnerability, as well as savagely wicked wit. Lapides has presented UnCabaret in a variety of locations and formats, and the comedian-host celebrates 25 years of unconventional, unpredictable merrymaking and sarcastic commiseration, joined by such stellar provocateurs as Julia Sweeney, Janeane Garofalo, Patton Oswalt, Bob Odenkirk, Maria Bamford, Andy Kindler, Laura Kightlinger, Greg Behrendt, Rebecca Corry, Alex Edelman, Allee Willis, Scott Thompson and singer Shelby Lynne.
