After starting as a student project a decade ago, Blackout is still going strong
Troupe Celebrates Milestone with ‘Best of’ Showing
Blackout Theater is celebrating its 10th anniversary this weekend with a special run of its most popular YouTube videos at The Guild Cinema.
Founded by UNM students, the troupe strives to be different. Perhaps best known locally for its annual Halloween haunted house experience, “Quarantine,” the group is also known on a national stage for its viral video “Shit Burquenos Say.”
The Blackout theater group has been creating comedy sketches and videos series for 10 seasons on its YouTube channel, covering everything from the world of unemployment (as seen in their series “FUNemployment”), to following Lynette La Burquena (played by group member Lauren Poole) as she visits different places with her unique perspective.
“Best of Blackout — A Screening of 10 Years of Blackout Videos!” will begin at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 21, for a one-day, one-time showing at The Guild Theater (3405 Central Ave. NE, Albuquerque).
