Written and performed by Charles (Chuck Armstrong & Charlie Stockman)
Wowing crowds from L.A. to Edmonton to Edinburgh, Moby Alpha pays preposterous homage to classic sci-fi and bombastic literature, with nods to Alien, Star Trek, 2001: A Space Odyssey, and myriad others. Moby Alpha tells the story of a mad captain’s quest for revenge on the amorphous energy cloud that temporarily took his leg. More simply, Moby Alpha is Moby-Dick in space – but funny. The show is performed in an entirely dark theater, with the only light emanating from the duo’s custom-built, million-color, LED space helmets – creating a unique, otherworldly aesthetic. No flashlights necessary. Moby Alpha is a space-age comic romp unlike anything you’ve seen on land, the high seas, or deep space.
Produced by PM2 Entertainment.
