Best Picture At Rogue 2015

by Kurt Fitzpatrick



In the one hour span of this comedy romp, all eighty?seven Academy Award winning films are lampooned, from Wings to On the Waterfront to Silence of the Lambs. Even Schindler’s List and 12 Years a Slave must be done to comedic effect. Can it be done? Order up a heaping bucket of hot buttered popcorn, a box of Raisinets the size of a DeLorean, grab a comfy seat, and find out. And live theatre is ALWAYS in 3?D!!

Bromance At Rogue 2014

Last May at the Orlando Fringe Festival, I was telling Tommy Nugent about what we could do as a joint show. When Tommy heard the word “joint,” he was interested immediately. I proposed that we each do thirty minute solo pieces, and package them together as one show. While we were discussing this, our friend and fellow performer Tanya O’Debra spoke up and said, “No. That’s not what the people want to see. They want to see the two of you on stage together.”

I am happy to back at Rogue Festival for my fifth time, and this year I am emceeing burlesque shows, teaching improv at Severance, co-hosting the morning coffee salon at the home of Marcel Nunis, and performing my new show Cathedral City at Tower Lounge. I’m not surprised that I’ve become such a fixture at Rogue. I love it, and every year I look forward to returning to the Tower District.
