By Chris Parker

Chris Parker (7 Days, Have You Been Paying Attention, Golden Boy) was the only comedian to be affected by the global COVID-19 crisis*, and he's pretty certain he's the only comedian brave enough to talk about it live on stage**.

When live comedy venues and theatre shut their doors and the bloodbath of gig cancellations poured out, Chris understandably was a little stressed and instead of fleeing to the supermarket or alcohol shop to grab supplies, Chris ran to DAISO Japan, where he bought little felt craft kits for $3. As the case numbers began to rise along with the country's fears and anxiety levels, Chris began to mindlessly share his felting journey on his Instagram Stories. What resulted from the 6-week lockdown was 20,000 more followers, a hat made of felt creations, and two bids to purchase the hat from national museums.

How I Felt is the world's very first live comedy felting show. Join award-winning comedian Chris Parker for a night of cathartic, hilarious storytelling about the things that make us all anxious, while he simultaneously completes the mindful, calming activity of completing an entire $3 DAISO japan felting kit right in front of your very eyes.
