Rose Luardo & Andrew Jeffrey Wright serve up
THE NEW DREAMZ
Their performance piece, POWER MIND SELF HORIZON WORKSHOP CLASS FORUM, explores life's gamut with costume, improv dance and absurdist comedy. It is a mismatch of aesthetics and dialogues between themselves and the audience. Here's what you will see: the trials of making regular life less regular, dance bologna, inner worlds of discovery and deep clown.
Mystery English Pie (TBA) by Stargazy's proprietor Sam Jacobson
Edward Snyder serves up
VIOLENCE OF THE LAMBS
Performed by Edward Snyder, Written by Chris Davis
The next great threat to civilization is not nuclear war or disease, it's animals. ANIMALS. Lambs, dogs, cats, geese... They're organizing, and planning viscious attack.
34 years of documented research will prove the next great war will be...an Animal vs. Human War.
Animal Cracker Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting by Chef Ali's alter ego : Cakeman

CHRIS DAVIS - CHINCHILLA COATS
Recently returned from Edinburgh, come see Chris Davis' stand-up show Chinchilla Coats! There is no 3 course meal this day, but small fare & drinks will be available!
Covering such topics as the true cost of a chinchilla coat to depression, dysfunctional relationships, spooning with pillows and day-drinking alone, Chris Davis illuminates the turmoil of life with dry observation and dark metaphors that are sure to make you laugh while secretly crying inside. ('A strikingly original writer and performer.' (Scotsman).
"Davis shifts between the quotidian and philosophical, from pillows to helmets, and shares personal experiences, fun facts and opinions done with hilarious accuracy, and also very relatable."
- Victoria Chen, Outlier Scotland
"...the greatest comedian ever to wear a chinchilla coat." - Three Weeks
