Karl Marks Children’s Hour

About The Show

Marx your calendar! The time has come, for us to lip synch for our comrade’s lives! A campy, communist-themed variety show hosted by Brooklyn-based performance artist Karl Marks, the KARL MARKS CHILDREN’S HOUR features socialist leader puppetry lip synch, on-the-spot communist leader punning, dance movements inspired by socialist democracies, side-eyed readings from feminist lesbian archives, and live musical performances, lip synchs and sing-alongs of new and classic Socialist tunes like “Hasta Siempre,” “Who Controls the Means of Production?,” “The Internationale,” “Petty Petit Bourgeoisie,” and more. Come for the lessons; stay for the laughs.

Presented by Karl Marks. Starring Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin, Angela Davis, Ho Chi Minh & more. Featuring work by Emi Grate, Sam Corbin, Jeff Sykes, Colby Keller, the Lesbian Herstory Archives & more.

*Proceeds benefit the Lesbian Herstory Archives.
