Los Angeles is world renowned as a horrible place to drive, with the most congested highways in America, but did you know that there are a select few adult Los Angelenos who DON’T DRIVE??
BUSted!, features true stories about getting around Los Angeles, told by people who don’t drive. You’ll hear tales of freaks, creeps and rock and roll stars riding the busses and trains of Los Angeles. These true stories told by comedians, musicians, writers and other public transit miscreants, will make you laugh and/or freak you out.
LA WEEKLY says BUSted! is “Perfectly tailored for a city where public transportation is so underutilized.” and “The humorous and occasionally moving tales become as much a celebration of ditching a car as commiseration over its frustrations.
Although, BUSted’s true home court is at Stories LA Cafe and books in Echo Park, we have been kindly invited by DTLAB to take the show on the road. and the first stop is none other than the public transportation hub of Los Angeles, Union Station!
I am excited to bring some of my favorite storytellers from the first year of BUSted, and we will be holding court in the TRAXX bar at the front of the station
Featured storytellers include:
Eddie Solis (It’s It’s Casual)
Dean Haglund (X-files)
Katya Duft (Tales From The Bus)
Tanya White (representing The Big Blue Bus)
Buck Ball (Upright Citizens Brigade)
more special guests TBA!!
As always, we will have the Q&A feature: Ask The Green Commuters, and if there is extra time, I always enjoy to welcome audience members to share a short 5-minute story.
this show will be easily accessible by all modes of transportation from all over the city, so I hope to see you there!
