The Uncle Cuddles and Spiccy the Clown Show
The VORTEX presents Uncle Cuddles and Spiccy the Clown: Bad Clowns
Gone Worse! Yes, Kiddies, Uncle Cuddles and his best pally Spiccy
are back, along with their friends The Ratgirls! After being BANNED
FROM PERFORMING IN CANADA this past summer, the naughty clowns are
keeping their spectacularly colorful brand of comedy and hyjinx at
the VORTEX for SIX PERFORMANCES ONLY.
A "nightmarishly fun Kid's Variety Show strictly for adults",
The Uncle Cuddles and Spiccy the Clown Show will Delight, Amaze,
and Horrify you, probably all in the space of a few minutes! Included
in the evening's festivities is the full and uncut version of CIRCO
STUPIDO!! ("A spot-on spoof of Cirque du Soleil." Michael
Barnes again!) Also included is the amazing story of the Fallen
Angel Clowns, Smekko and Petar, who have come back to earth to atone
for their misguided heavenly pranks. Only their bizarre circus tricks
can redeem them. Will they make it back to Heaven?? Who knows!!
BE SURE NOT TO MISS IT!!
Award winning actors Clay Towery, David Saldaña, and Stephanie
Swenson are joined by fellow VORTEX Repertory Company members Courtney
Hopkin, Ellen Kolstö, Tommy Vasquez, Amie Elyn, and Jericho
Thorpe, to bring you this wonderful evening of Sensitive, Poetic,
WARNING: STRONG ADULT LANGUAGE AND SITUATIONS. NOT A LOT OF INNER
CHILD STUFF. WE ARE NOT KIDDING. REALLY. YOU HAVE BEEN FOREWARNED.
