Get ready to laugh. Maggie Crane's Side By Side, at Brooklyn Comedy Collective on January 18th at 8:30pm. 

After its critically acclaimed, sold out run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Maggie Crane’s darkly funny solo show is an autobiographical account of growing up amidst disability, death, and Dunkin Donuts. 

Can you ever be as cool as your older brother? Not when he has a purple sparkly wheelchair and everyone’s attention. Set during the early 2000s in the crunchy-granola-meets-redneck-woods of Western Massachusetts. To ground the show in preteen angst and vulnerability, Maggie foregrounds her love of emo music and her lifelong obsession with Panic! at the Disco. Side by Side is part solo show, part stand-up special about comedian Maggie's relationship with her older brother Aiden. Aiden was blind, in a wheelchair, and developmentally disabled, but this never stopped the wild jealousy, sibling rivalry, and unique bond between the two siblings.

Maggie is a New York City based comedian who has been featured in the New York Comedy Festival, HBO and Comedy Central.
