Rogue Teaser Show Review

by Terrance Mc Arthur



They called it the Rogue Teaser Show at the Tower Theatre on Thursday night, and I didn’t think it was a tease as much as it was a treat! About 30 acts from the festival strutted their stuff on the stage, and there was everything from magic tricks to belly dancers to singers to comedy monologues. I’m going to tell you about some of the performers and groups that made me want to see them, and some old favorites of mine that are worth the time and the Rogue Bucks.

George the Giant On Stage

by Terrance Mc Arthur




He swallows swords! He eats fire! He’s been on TV, in movies, and in The National Enquirer! He’s set Guinness World Records that nobody wants to break, he’s 7’3”, he’s a master of the sideshow arts, and he’s coming to Fresno for the Rogue Festival(this isn't technically a Rogue show, but it is taking place in the same area as Rogue at the same time)! FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY…GEORGE “THE GIANT” Mc ARTHUR…my little brother. No, I’m not taller, just older!

Bromance At Rogue 2014

by Kurt Fitzpatrick



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.”

The Pieces At Rogue 2014

by Kathleen Denny



Families! Every child grows up in a different one, even with the same parents at the same address. Take brothers and sisters, six of them scattered, one snowy Wisconsin December, and their father’s funeral, gather them in and dramedy will follow. In this household, sailing and the law combine with Hagar the Horrible, war, peace and The Energizer Bunny. Argument was Dad’s favorite sport and his oldest daughter was his designated sparring partner. And she’s been assigned to deliver a eulogy. “Something nice,” says her sister. But Kathleen doesn’t do nice.
