Comedians and performance artists Ted Swartz and Lee Eshleman, known to their audience as Ted and Lee, will present the show “Fish-Eyes” on Tuesday, Oct. 3, at 7 p.m. in Eppley Auditorium, 3625 Garretson Avenue, on the campus of Morningside College.
The performance is appropriate for all ages and the public is invited. General admission is $5.
“Fish-Eyes” is a theatrical production that blends biblical characterizations with elements of comedy and poignant moments in a theatrical storytelling of what life must have been like for Jesus’ disciples, Peter and Andrew. Through scenes drawn from the four Gospels, the actors flesh out “Pete” and “Andy” as they find themselves hip-deep in miracles, questions, and ultimately, faith.
Since 1987, Ted and Lee have performed for more than a quarter million people at universities, businesses, non-profit agencies, and other organizations across the country and around the world. The duo was one of 13 acts selected for the premiere season of “Bananas,” an Emmy Award-winning comedy series produced by Guardian Television. Other plays by Ted and Lee include a take on the Old Testament, the Christmas story, and Jacob and Esau’s reconciliation, written with keyboardist and singer Ken Medema.
