JESSA REED & AARON WOODALL in “MORMON AND THE METH-HEAD”
Thursday, September 27, 2018 8pm
If the little angel and devil on your shoulders ever hung out without you, became best friends, and started their own podcast, it would probably sound a lot like Mormon and the Meth-Head. A former Mormon and a former Meth-Head come together to form an equally wholesome and horrific duo. Vulture calls them “your typical pals who tour as stand-ups together, share a storied past of social isolation, and love each other in a “You’re the best friend I’ve been looking for my whole life” way.”
They are indeed an unlikely pair. They have led two completely different lives. While Aaron was stopping strangers on the streets of Milan to teach them about Joseph Smith, Jessa was teaching dudes how to keister meth in Arby’s bathrooms across Portland. In their respective routines, they each tackle topics like love, sex, drugs, and alcohol, but with polar opposite perspectives. Audiences get to see their world through Aaron’s naive, innocent eyes as well as through Jessa’s bleary, bloodshot ones.
