by Kali Tripodis
Kali Tripodis is comedian and musician with a penchant for chaos. As a movie-loving 90s kid, true love was always drilled into Kali's head as the absolute pinnacle of success. Because of this, she centered herself around the male gaze and subconsciously molded her personality for their pleasure. The moment she laid eyes on her first crush, her life forever shifted onto a path that would ultimately lead her to violently throwing up in a Red Lobster. Hot Boys is a comedic and musical exploration of this. Hot Boys is a multimedia experience with original songs, tragic stories, and personal triumph. It is a show for those of us who have lost touch with ourselves to please others. It is a show for those of us who have sacrificed too much for a fantasy that was never real. It is a show for those of us who have had to rediscover ourselves like an old, estranged friend. Never lose yourself for love. But if you do, make sure it’s not to a convicted coke dealer with a Justin Timberlake tattoo.
