Laughing at Work

Buntport Theater examines resume and job-interview untruths.

 Teacher’s Pet: I’m a People Person (Lies told in resumés and during job interviews) at Buntport Theater, 717 Lipan Street, is the latest installation in a monthly series that gives participating audience members five minutes on stage to do anything relating to that month’s theme — from singing to reading diaries, doing standup, storytelling and everything in between. “Everybody’s got a little creativity,” says Buntport player Evan Weissman, “so why not give them a platform to do that for five minutes? It’s more than an open mike. It’s like when someone says, ‘Be funny’ — that doesn’t help. So we give them a little homework to start them off.”

The show starts at 9 p.m., with an open sign-up at 8. So collect all those fraudulent resumés and think long and hard about every fib, misrepresentation or outright lie you’ve told to nab a job. No one will judge you here. “They can do anything they want,” says Weissman. “We won’t censor them. I assume people will come in with resumés and tell stories about things they did in an interview. It’s fun to hear the crazy things people have done.”

Tickets range from $4 to $6 based on objects you draw from a hat (seriously). For more information, call 720-946-1388 or go to www.buntport.com.
