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, Joyous Chaos.
WARNING: STRONG ADULT LANGUAGE AND SITUATIONS. NOT A LOT OF INNER CHILD STUFF. WE ARE NOT KIDDING. REALLY. YOU HAVE BEEN FOREWARNED.
