Heeeey, hepcats! I want to take the time to thank all of you that have stuck around here after the format change, and to welcome those of you who have newly joined us! HIYEEEEE! Thank you for being here! HIYEEE!!! ::waves energetically::
We are now in the pollen-laden and brightly-colored throes of spring, and while this is my least favorite time to go outside (curse you blazing sun-nemesis) or go clothes shopping (what do you MEAN you don’t have anything in black velvet!? ANT-FIENDS!) we do nonetheless have some exciting things to look forwards to, particularly for those of you who live in the Bay Area.
Firstly is THIS FRIDAY, where the world famous Hubba Hubba Revue burlesque show will be doing a celebration of children’s shows and cartoons at Hubba Hubba Revue’s ‘Cartoon Funhouse!’ It’ll have a fantastic lineup of performers, all hosted by Cap’n Kingfish, Alexa Von Kartoonface and a bunch of puppet monstrosities supplied by, well, what do you know… US! If you happen to be in the Bay Area, be sure to get tickets here. Floor seats are already almost sold out as of this posting!
And we’ve got more exciting stuff in May! You know our friend Kat, right? I know y’all do, a bunch of you are here because of our work with Kat (THANK YOU KAT! WE ADORE AND APPRECIATE YOOOOU!). You know – THIS Kat:
(because I’m never NOT entertained by scaring friends with rubber monsters – SORRY!)
Aaaaaanyway, as many of you may be aware, Kat does a show called Misfit Cabaret with music and acrobats and drag acts and lots of other fantastic stuff, and we’re lucky enough to be a regular part of it (see exhibit A above). My favorite show of hers is Grimm; generally a fairy-tale themed show, but mainly a celebration of a bunch of our favorite 80’s fantasy films (Labyrinth, Legend, Neverending Story, etc…). I’m thrilled to announce that it’s coming back to the Bay Area from May 10th to 12th. We’re debuting some exciting new puppets for this run. I mean, this is pretty good, right?
I’m a little proud of that. And you can see Charlie and I puppeteering it (along with other 80’s rubber monsters!) at Misfit Cabaret presents Grimm! You can get tickets HERE, but there’s a discount today if you’re a member of Kat’s patreon, which is totally worth it!
For those of you who aren’t in the Bay Area, don’t worry; there are plenty of fun things coming your way! And I’ve been doing a whole bunch of original sketches for all the $25 and up Patrons!
So if you turn up to any of the events, be sure to come up and say hi!
