WATCHING PAINT DRY
THE MARTINI HOUR
Watching Paint Dry is a new play by Joey, produced by jpeg, about Eloise Esteban, a visual artist, who despite garnering critical and financial acclaim has never left the confines of her home due to an illness. Her only contact with the outside is her promoter, Dr. Thomas, who has raised and conditioned her to be as productive as possible. Eloise is content in this life, but recent events cause her to question the authenticity of her curated existence. The play’s tone walks a tightrope of comedy and drama; stylized, yet oppressively real.
This piece is the ultimate artistic live theatre going experience - not only through the text and performances; but through presentations of the paintings of the powerful visual artist, Sathya. Audience members are truly immersed in the artists studio - surrounded by stimulating paintings- in the middle of creation. This piece fulfills art fantasies.

Martini Hour is a bi-monthly live variety show hosted by Joey and Ella consisting of standup, musical performances, and interviews with the freakiest folks alive. It's not your typical talk show.
The show is narrated with insight and antagonism by the hosts and their band leader, an enslaved half-man, half-dog, (all-bastard) named Prinston. Something sinister is always on the verge of spilling over.
The show premiere is coming sometime in the 2020 calendar year (thx coronavirus) and will recur at multiple DTLA venues.
