WORK SCHMERK is an original multimedia one-man comedy show fueled by the hilariously rich story telling of writer/producer Jay Flewelling (Friday Night Fights, J Names), directed by writer/producer Caitlin Kunkel (Second City, Chicago), with technical direction by Ken Wells.  Jay Flewelling, seen on PRI’s Live Wire! Radio, Mortified, and The Moth Grand Slam, invites the audience along as he unpacks his storied history of bizarre jobs, from teaching in Alaskan fishing villages to finding himself counting millions of dollars in an underground cash vault.  Work Shmerk explores the complicated relationships we have with our work ethic, our day job, and most importantly our passions. In Work ShmerkFlewelling asks the question “What defines you? The work you have or the work you put in?”
