Funny World

1217 E. Madison St. Phoenix, AZ 85034 | Central Phoenix | 602-283-5040

Location Description:

If you haven't attended a show at this tiny gallery and music venue housed in a ramshackle CenPho residence, better get a move on. That's because in all likelihood, Funny World probably won’t exist by the time that summer rolls around. It's owner, the curiously named Space Alien Donald, claims that the property is slated to be scooped up and razed by the City of Phoenix in the spring to make way for a parking lot. In the meantime, however, local musicians, bands, and spoken word artists have been filling Funny World's short lifespan with plenty of gigs. Art rockers, funky folk guitarists, and various purveyors of weird sounds typically perform in the living room in front of a Babar bed sheet covering the windows while the audience sits of thrift store sofas or cops a squat on the floor. In between sets, they gather in the kitchen to drink coffee or watch the owner bust out with some raps and rhymes while dressed in costume. Sounds like just another funny night at Funny World.
