"Bursting with energy...hilarity and pathos"★★★★★ Edinburgh Evening News

Longing Lasts Longer is a unique blend of stand-up comedy and memoir set in ariveting rock and roll soundscape mixed live by Penny Arcade’s collaborator of 29 years Steve Zehentner. Longing Lasts Longer has been performed in 45 cities world-wide, winning three top festival prizes in Edinburgh and Adelaide. Longing Lasts Longer is fierce, visionary and ultimately a forward-looking critique of the erasure of history, the rise of nostalgia and the pervasiveness of culturalamnesia created by international gentrification seen through the lens of NewYork City. Longing Lasts Longer is a crack in our planet’s post-gentrified andscape and shines a light on the path to individual authenticity.

"Penny Arcade has got to be the smartest, most quotable party in town! Audacious and irresistible! “ The London Times
