Please join us at Chicago's newest performance venue dedicated to solo performance, an intimate 46-seat theater tucked away inside one of the city's legendary Irish pubs. 


I'm Not Trying To Be Funny ...

R.C. Riley's humorous solo show with a nod to stand-up comedy will leave you in deep reflection about relationships, perspectives, and life’s most trying tribulations. I’m Not Trying To Be Funny… but sometimes you just have to laugh to keep from crying!  




R.C. Riley (she/her/they) is a writer, performer, activist, and warrior who began writing as a means of healing after a sexual assault. R.C.’s personal healing led to the creation of their first solo show, Wrong Way Journey. Their work examines the intersection of race, gender (sex), sexuality and faith and seeks to find justice for and liberate those marginalized by society. R.C. leads workshops, guest lectures, performs short stories and solo shows at colleges and theaters across the Chicagoland area. Their solo shows include: Wrong Way Journey, SOGI Say What?!: LGBTQ+ Health Care Experiences, Take It Easy on The Left Hand, Please and their most recent work – I’m Not Trying to Be Funny. In addition, R.C. hosts a podcast titled BE EMPOWERED! with R.C., which addresses topics of concern for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) and LGBTQ+ communities. You can find R.C. on social media @rcempowers or @rcrileyempowers or check out their website  www.rcrileyempowers.com.
