Fabulous Fringe: A Speakeasy Gala

Beat the post-holiday blues by joining us at our Inaugural VIP Fundraiser Show!

A Double Feature of Award-Winning Fringe Shows, in support of the Tampa International Fringe Festival on Friday, January 20th, 2023.

The Shows:

Paul Strickland: 90 Lies an Hour
"90 Lies an Hour" is a collection of Hilarious Tall-Tales and other fictions from multi-award winning humorist and storyteller Paul Strickland. "90 Lies an Hour" won BEST SOLO SHOW, COMEDY at the Orlando International Fringe Theatre Festival, an official ENCORE Award at the Cincinnati Fringe Festival, a Storytelling World Awards Honor, and has been performed at Universities, Performing Arts Centers and Storytelling Festivals all across the US and Canada. Paul has performed stories at the National Storytelling Festival, at the Soho Theatre Off-Broadway, and selections of his performances can be heard nearly every day on Sirius / XM radio.

Vulva Va-Voom: Hollywood Psychic of the Golden Age

Gritty comedian Vulva Va-Voom gets a mysterious gift...or is that "grift?" She ditches her Vaudeville schtick for a supernatural talent: contacting stars of the 1950s. With help from a dummy possessed by Jimmy Stewart, the nightclub ne'er-do-well battles an uptight intellectual property lawyer & the fleeting nature of fame itself. From the triple threat behind 3 Fringe "Edge Award"-winning pieces comes this risqué, goth-y cavalcade of nerdiness.
