Annie La Ganga's Drawing a Paycheck
Drawing A Paycheck is a fun, improvised show that's about all the ways Annie La Ganga has tried to make money with arts and crafts. It's also about drawing. It's also about working (and not working), finding out what works (and doesn't), making (and not making) work, and whatever else comes up when Annie starts talking and drawing portraits of volunteers from the audience.
After her sensational run of Drawing A Paycheck at FronteraFest in 2012, Annie La Ganga revisits her hit show for four nights only! According to The Austin Chronicle, "Drawing a Paycheck is La Ganga's ode to the creative, multi-talented Austinites who have hit middle age and still don't know how they're going to earn a living when they grow upby fusing her idiosyncratic improvisational storytelling with visual art, La Ganga hopes to transform her turbulent relationship with making money."
Annie La Ganga is a writer, comedian, and monologist. She is the author of Stoners and Self-Appointed Saints, A Memoir (Red Hen Press 2009) and the creator of the one-woman shows Let's Make Love Tonight, A Self-Help Stand-Up Comedy Interactive Performance Art Monologue and Surprise Annie!, a collaboration with Rubber Repertory. She is a committed arts activist and has been teaching life drawing to inmates at Travis County Correctional Complex Del Valle since 2002.
