CoW #3 – August 4, 2014

CoW - August 4th


This month’s show is packed with performers. Again. And they’re all new. Again.

Don’t be alarmed. This was supposed to happen.

Attending “Mike Critelli’s Cavern of Whimsy” month after month is the sort of activity for which you deserve a reward, and not just free drinks and a chance to win a $10 gift card (though there is that). The reward is this: you get to see a completely new show every time. Not the same performers doing slightly different acts, but completely new performers doing completely unique acts. I may bring back a handful of favorites every few months, but so far it’s been all new.

This month, in descending poster order:

Landon Kirksey does standup. He’s from Texas and reminds me of a young Bill Hicks. You do the math.

Last month’s dinosaur-painter Nat Iosbaker joins Sarah Winters for a slam poetry duet.

The debut of an original one-act play from the theatre troupe Little Red Feathers, which was promised to me to be “extremely psychotic.”

A tight bluegrass set from up-and-coming local band The New Historians.

Plus, visual artist SPARC takes over the live-painting duties this month, and I present another installment of my now-famous (and newly named) “SoCal Slideshow Tour.”

The facts are on the poster, and here:

At 9:00, Monday night, August 4th, at The Ruby Theatre, inside the double doors at The Complex, on the right, Cavern of Whimsy will begin for a 3rd time.

$8 at the door, CASH ONLY.

Arrive 20-25 minutes early to grab a seat and a free drink. Then sit back and bear witness to the whimsy!


P.S. How does “bear witness to the whimsy” sound as a catchphrase? Let me know. It’s one of several I’m working on…
