Amy Muller's Vital Signs + Dad, Playboy & Me... Not Your Average Slideshow
Projectorfest presents multimedia comedy shows from Amy Muller and A.G. Norton
About this Event

These shows are presented as a part of Projectorfest 2024, a four-night showcase of ambitious multimedia-driven comedy projects. More at This performance includes two 30-minute shows.


The world abounds with familiar signs: “STOP,” “NO SOLICITING,” “LINE STARTS HERE…” but for many years, Amy Muller has been enchanted by the rare delicacies, the ones that leave you with more questions than answers, more fears than instructions. Ones like “NO SOUP ON ROOF” (Williamsburg, April 2023), or “YOU SHOULD KNOW THE FUNCTION OF BANISTER” (Yangzhou, 2017), or “FREE GUINEA PIGS” (Aspen, 2023). And as she collects her little treasures, she can’t help but speculate as to what, exactly, happened that might have inspired them. Amy Muller’s Vital Signs tells the story behind each of her favorite signs—or at least, offers her best guess.


Comedic storytelling featuring rare Playboy Club photographs, anecdotes from the people who worked there, and the personal journey they inspired. Follow our narrator's journey through iconic photographers, their personal connection to her family history, and research showing intersections between impressionism, the Dada art movement, the lost generation in Paris and their influence on modern day street photography. Oh - and Playboy. It's wild….

Back in NYC after performances in Berlin, London, & The Edinburgh Fringe Festival this comedic slideshow gives an intimate look behind the Playboy Club through archived film rescued from a basement in New Jersey. The show was delighted to be awarded winner of the Brighton Pride Bursary at the Brighton, UK Fringe Festival 2023 supporting queer storytelling.

“Cathartic, creative, & healing” –North West End UK Press

"It showed me a new angle to the Playboy Clubs. I found it fascinating" –Marston Hefner

When she’s not busy not bragging in Google Forms or bothering Quinn, she can be found searching the world for signs, rollerblading, and walking to urgent care because she broke her wrist rollerblading (again <3)

A.G. Norton (Performer/Writer, Dad, Playboy, & Me... Not Your Average Slideshow) quit her job as an after school teacher for middle schoolers to tour her Dad's Playboy photos and the stories she discovered behind them.
