SUNIL SADARANGANI certified reviewer June 12, 2011
By far one of the most funniest one-person act I have ever seen in a very long time! Clara is naturally funny and is a riot on stage. Her comedic timing is more than perfect and has you rolling on the floor in hysterics even with the most straight forward line which would not otherwise generate a laugh by a lesser actor. Brilliant, engaging writing and performance par excellence!! Go watch her show--now!... full review

A blazing, incredible night of true-life meets the surreal in a hysterical expose of the ironic. Traverse the twisted lol path of a damaged 21st century survivor of isolationism, addiction and Hollywood. A close to-the-surface confessional of modern life in the outskirts of Los Angeles set in the funky foothills of the eccentric. Clara shines in her lively take of the weathered divorcee looking for lust in the local hardware store and spontaneous street gatherings spawned by the threats of the 2009 Station Fire in the Angeles Forest. Her collection of stories of neighborhood outcasts and freaks leaves you sore from laughing. A fantastic performance punctuated with great direction and less-is-more production value. See it while you can!! ... full review

Apocalypse, Not Now! showcases stoner, alcoholic and former hand model, Clara York. Telling the story of how the fires in Tujunga forced her agoraphobic little self out of her home after nine years, only to be faced with two other natural disasters in the form of flood and mudslides. Stronger than the natural disasters she recounts, York herself is a comedic force to be reckoned with. The solo show is smartly broken up into three parts: fire, floods, mudslide, which gives the wildly entertaining York three stories to tell amidst her larger one, effectively making the time pass quickly. York laughed in the face of the many apocalypses she faced- shoe shopping during the fires, picking up hardware store employees during the floods, and divi... full review
