Since the 1950s, Simon has been the go-to guy for laughter on radio, TV, and in the movies. Barefoot in the Park, Sweet Charity, The Odd Couple, The Goodbye Girl, Brighton Beach Memoirs…..comedy is spelled Neil Simon.

It’s Rogue Time in Fresno! Go Rogue! See local performers! See acts from the far reaches of reality—and beyond!
The Rogue Festival is Fresno’s different kind of March Madness—ten locations, lots of shows, through March 10. You can see stand-up comedy, belly dancing, puppetry, magic (lots of magic, this year), plays, music, and things that defy description.

Come party with the artists!
That was the idea behind my live game show, Fringe Factor: Rogue Edition. I want to throw a party onstage and invite the audience. I want to play lively games and raucous music.

The Outdustrial Theatre Company is producing an unusual show this year at the 17th Annual Rogue Festival. Titled ASS or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bong, it’s already making waves in the scene.

It’s the mid seventies in Alaska; I’m a folksinger in my early twenties, making 150 bucks a night headlining at the Fancy Moose Saloon. I’m driving a bright orange Karmann Ghia convertible—probably the only convertible in Alaska—and I’m adored by my beautiful girlfriend, Molly. So I’ve pretty much got it made.

Nothing is Beautiful; Everything is Fine was born around this time last year. I was struggling to survive through my everyday life and found myself constantly thinking about how I could open up to people about what I was feeling. The thought of vulnerability and vocalizing what my brain was telling me was absolutely terrifying.

We always enjoy the opportunity to get to know members of the arts and entertainment community better, whether it be through local actor/director/artist/musician profiles or q and a’s. It is fun and interesting to get to know each performer as more than just some person on a stage entertaining us.

“I need to talk to you.” Under certain circumstances those words would be a source of anxiety, but not this time. This was Tower District Marketing Committee Director, Felix Muzquiz’s response to a question about the annual Tower District Mardi Gras Parade.

Who, me? Complain? Why, whatever for? Just because I had just taken yet another job I should never have even considered? But, just look at me now! I get to ride a nice, free shuttle to my job where I have my very own office in the swankiest environment I have ever worked.

20 TIME BEST-OF-FEST AWARD WINNER, Gemma Wilcox (from London, UK), returns for her 9th Rogue Festival with her one-woman, multi-character Rogue 2013 hit show, exploring the unexpected twists and turns of life, love, and being on the road…

Why would anyone choose to ride their bicycle across a country – let alone, a country the size of Canada, the second-largest country by landmass in the world?

So, what does it take to write a comedy for the Rogue Festival? I thought it would be easy. After all, I watch Saturday Night Live and the nightly news. Well, now it’s 24-hour breaking news. Tweet! Ah, too easy! Then it hit me. The perfect subject for a Rogue comedy—me and my experience as a nude model. I mean at age seventy-seven it’s a little late for a career in nude modeling.


by Toni Weingarten

I never dreamed I’d work in show business. Growing up around Berkeley, that was the last thing on my radar. I thought I’d be a lawyer, like my father. But in college I took an art class to get my mind off logical things, and that lead to another and another, until I majored in art and dabbled in video as an art form. Being creative was far more enjoyable than doing research in the library!
