Open: 02/20/15- Close: 03/08/15 WHERE I'M FROM
Being born into a dysfunctional family forced comedian Mike Lemme to be quiet. Lemme was quiet because he never knew how to relate to other kids. They would talk about things he knew nothing about like sports, movies, and video games, but if you wanted to talk about wetting the bed, low self-esteem, and visiting family in mental hospitals, Mike was your guy!

Now 25, Lemme is more aware of what’s happening in the world. By mixing his cultural observations with biographical material, Mike proves there are few things comedy can’t make better. “Where I’m From” is a stand-up comedy, coming-of-age story about struggle, survival, and scoliosis. Lemme uses the lessons he learned growing up to navigate life in New York City.
