Comedy show and fundraiser for The Natural Burial Society (

Part catharsis, part circus, total chaos — a comedy show about grief, loss, and death!

Within the span of 3 years, comedian Ben Wasserman lost his dad, granddad, uncle, and four friends. In his new show Live After Death, Ben blends comedy, clowning, and crowd work as he leads the audience on a hilarious yet moving journey through grief, honoring and celebrating the ones we’ve lost along the way. Expect vulnerable conversation, juggling, a seance, some dancing — you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, it’ll be a whole thing!

The hit comedy show about grief and loss taking over funeral homes and cemeteries across the country comes to Gainesville for one night only to help raise funds for a new forward-thinking funeral home for the community!

DOORS 6 p.m. SHOW 6:30 p.m.

$20 or pay what you can!

If sold out online some tickets will be available at door day of show!


Live After Death has been featured and recommended by NPR, The New York Times, The Boston Globe, Time Out NY, Chicago Reader, Philadelphia Weekly, The Toledo Blade, Pittsburgh Union Press and more!

Ben Wasserman is a very funny boy based in NYC. Ben has appeared in the Brooklyn Comedy Festival, New York Comedy Festival, and NY/Philly/Burlington Fringe Festivals. His work and shows have been featured by The New York Times, VICE, Paste Magazine, Vulture, Comedy Central, Buzzfeed, and Time Out. And, a few years ago Ben painted with his butt on MTV.
