Tell us about you.
Anoush is a live storyteller and cartoonist living in NYC, who knows her way around a Sharpie. When she isn’t telling stories, she draws her online comic, “Anoush Talks To Stuff,” a webcomic about a girl who talks to objects.

Tell us about your current project?
ONE WOMAN, UNDER BROW features candid stories written and performed by Anoush Froundjian about her Armenian family; her Armenian day school; and her pursuit to redefine, “Home.” This 30-minute performance piece is told through a web of sometimes comedic and sometimes sharp and poignant storytelling. The piece addresses the cultural differences between Anoush’s background and that of day-to-day, society, revealing how it has both torn down and reshaped the life of a child and now (semi) adjusted adult.
Where are you performing your show and why is it a good fit for your production?
ONE WOMAN UNDER BROW will be performing as part of Solocom 2019, a 4-day festival of completely new solo works, where all shows presented are 75%-100% new material and created specifically for the fest. Solocom’s goal is to push artists to create a show that is meaningful, personal and to follow the fear. What better a place to talk about growing up on the North Shore with a unibrow and a name like this?
What’s next for you?
A show about moving to LA and the four, eventful months that lead to me moving back home. (The Armenian theme gallops through this as well, if not more incessantly.)
What is the name of the last show you saw?
The Armory Improv House Teams at The Tank!
Any advice for your peers?
There’s life beyond high school, and even your own first name.
