"Show Up" is Peter Michael Marino's international, critically acclaimed, semi-improvised/semi-scripted show that's based on the crazy real-life experiences of the audience - who also control the set and sound. The show played to sold out houses at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe, as well as a 15-month run in NYC. The Fourth Wall will open the program and serve as the house band for the performance.
