Rogue Festival 2012

by Sandra Risser

I wrote and perform Miss You ex? Reload and fire again! as a tribute to all the people who survive relationships gone wrong. I admit to being smart, funny, and older than Twinkies. I’m eccentric not crazy, drive in the fast lane and can bench-press 75 grams. I believe in Santa Clause, the Tooth Fairy and clean underwear

At the Rogue Festival, 2006, I saw a show called It’s OK to Like Porn. In that show, Aaron Bonilla told the story of his adventures working in an adult bookstore. After the show, it occurred to me that churches are a lot like adult bookstores, they are filled with interesting people. Most people who go to church have no idea what goes on behind the scenes. After 30 plus years I have seen it all, from fist fighting wedding parties to schizophrenic nuns.

Come on in and meet some of my friends!
Essentially, that’s what I’ll be sharing with everyone at each of my Rogue performances: a chance to get acquainted with all sorts of people: misguided, earnest, annoying, enthusiastic, cautious, insightful, exasperated, risqué, disorganized, affectionate, clueless, gutsy, timid, loyal, devious, and hopelessly confused.

This is my fourth consecutive Rogue Festival, and my first – and hopefully last – festival where I have to do the show while hobbling around with a cane. Last year I developed a herniated disc and I am still recovering from it. Still, it has been important for me to get the message out that I express in my show, Hooray for Speech Therapy.

It’s nearly time for Fresno’s Rogue Festival 2012 which will take place March 1 through 10. Recently I had the chance to speak with one of the Festival’s producers, Renee “Solitaire” Newlove, about this year’s event. I also spoke with a few of the performers who will be there this year. So enjoy this intro to our Rogue coverage and watch for several more articles and reviews over the next couple of weeks!
