Unstuck as F*ck
written by and starring Orlando Bishop
directed by Anika Larsen

Unstuck as F*ck, making its world premiere in Key West, is a truly unique event. Part TED talk, part stand-up routine, part heartbreaking drama. Over the course of 70 minutes, TV writer and actor Orlando tells the fascinating story of his life—from growing up in the concrete jungle of Flatbush, Brooklyn to his years in the ivory tower of Yale—to all the ups and downs that came after.

Irreverent, insightful, and inspirational.

Orlando’s story is enlightening, healing, and particularly timely in the wake of the Black Lives Matter movement and the “We See You, White American Theater” initiative.

Orlando Bishop has called Los Angeles home since 1997 when he first crossed the country in a “three-wheeled car” to earn his MFA in Motion Picture Producing from USC Film School’s Peter Stark Producing Program. He’s served as a staff writer on 7th Heaven and The Secret Life Of The American Teenager and developed projects for companies ranging from Nickelodeon to Fox Searchlight. Throughout his time doing stand-up, performing storytelling, and developing his solo show, “ORLANDO BISHOP: Unstuck As F*ck,” a “good story, well told” has consistently been his aim. Even the strategy development system he highlights in his solo show is based on helping people to articulate their success story and then coaching them through the process of bringing it to life. In 2018, Orlando directed Dinner For Two for TV One, a script he’d written, interestingly, about a man who needs desperately to get “unstuck.” These days, whether he’s developing for stage or screen, whether writing comedy or drama, Orlando continues to draw on his youth in Flatbush, Brooklyn, his journey to and through “Hollywood,” and life with his wife of 23 years and their 16-year-old twins to tell stories that get audiences unstuck, giving them something to think about or just a much-needed laugh.

Anika Larsen has performed on Broadway in Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, Avenue Q, Xanadu, All Shook Up and Rent. Off-Broadway, she was in Zanna, Dont!, Myths and Hymns, Closer Than Ever, Miracle Brothers, How to Save the World and Find True Love in 90 Minutes, Disaster! and Unbroken Circle.  Anika wrote and performed in a musical called Shafrika, The White Girl about her childhood growing up in Cambridge, MA with nine brothers and sisters from different races and countries. She directed weekly live-streamed plays for teens throughout the spring of 2020 as part of the “Stars in the House” franchise.  Anika majored in theater at Yale University and she looks forward to returning to Broadway in 2021 in Almost Famous the Musical.
