- Burlesque Performer extraodinaire Andi Stardust! Here’s Andi’s take on doing burlesque in her own words, “Initially I was attracted to burlesque because I liked the idea of playing with the ways sex, nudity, and the body are conceptualized. My style leans towards humor and the absurd because I want to create an experience where the naked body is re-contextualized and the meanings we attach to it (and to the female body and gender in general) are challenged. Also, it’s just fun to take off your clothes in a funny mask.”
- Stephen Meads! Our prodigal son (and one of our favorite poets) returns! What strange new secrets will he bring to us from the distant world of Portlandia? Come and See his majesty and his mustache!
At age 77, Lynn Ruth Miller is a renaissance woman who wears many hats. She entertains audiences of all ages with comedy and song. She is living proof that the older you are, the more fun you have. At 71, she launched a new career coupling stand up comedy with cabaret singing in a show called AGING IS AMAZING. When she is not doing storytelling events, walking her dogs or knitting chemo-caps for cancer victims, she tutors aspiring writers and performs wherever there is a microphone and a stage. She has certainly taken the Bay Area by surprise if not by storm. She has become the symbol of achievement to all who know her. “If I can make MY dreams come true, anyone can,” says Lynn Ruth Miller.
- Dirty Haiku from our friends at HOODSLAM! Drugz Bunny Vs. Broseph watch what happens when wrestlers get Poetic! VS This is Real.
- REVOLVA is an international hula hoop act, fire sensation, writer and character performer. Since 2002, she’s traveled the globe, evoking laughter and standing ovations, under the motto: “Funny IS sexy!”
- Keesha Savannah is an up and coming Drag Queen here in Oakland. Keesha made a splash when she ran for homecoming queen at Oakland Tech this year. She loves acting, hair, performance, and is deeply inspired by pop star Lady Gaga. Drag is everything to her, and she hopes to share the magic of performance with everyone
