To be a successful magician, it takes more than skills. You need something extra, something memorable that sets your act apart from the others. Siegfried and Roy had white tigers. Penn & Teller have a guy who’s really tall and another who remains silent. Newcomer Shin Lim has an unruly mop of hair and stylish clothes. Tiger guys, big guy/quiet guy, hair guy – you know who I mean, right?

For 17 years, February and March have brought crowds to Fresno’s Tower District for the Rogue Festival, where dozens of performers and groups from the Valley and beyond show what they can do in makeshift venues for sometimes-soaked audiences. Now, it’s time for Rogue XVIII, from February 28 to March 9, a cornucopia of theatre, music, dance, magic, stand-up, and acts that defy description!

I’m a professional magician who loves classic country music, trains, theatre, traveling, and my friends. Also, I’m on the autism spectrum. I was diagnosed at fifteen months young after my parents noticed I quit responding to my name. They took me to the doctor and learned that I was autistic. The prognosis was grim.

I am returning to The Rogue Festival with a brand new show. My show Adventures While Black in Great Britain is a solo show that tells the true story of a trip that I took to England.

Every single time Kat looks up from her machine, she sees that pinup calendar with a gal who is NOT demonstrating ANY kind of mechanical technique! And it is just the start of her eight hour shift. But is it really worth the trouble? Kat is the first woman machinist that an airline hired since the 1970s. It’s years before Anita Hill tells the world about Clarence Thomas and Long John Silver, and most people have never even heard the term “sexual harassment.” What happens when Rosie the Riveter meets #MeToo?
