Real Customers. Real Stories. Real Funny.
Alex is a directionless twenty year old kid who spends his days manning a meat counter at the local grocery store. When an unexpected promotion falls into his lap, Alex must decide if he wants to follow his dreams or take on the stable career as a butcher.
Based off of real life events pulled from a 20 year career behind the butcher’s counter, Comedian Andy Livengood (Winner, Charleston City Paper’s Best Local Comic) Will play upwards of 30 characters and take audiences on a hilarious and heartfelt tour of strange coworkers, clueless managers and crazy customers. Whether you’ve worked behind a service counter or only shopped at one, this show will leave you in stitches.
What are the guys who cut your steaks really like?
Is it possible to deal with customers and not loose your mind?
What makes the world of retail so ridiculous?
