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.

The Rogue Festival is quickly approaching and the first sign of its impending arrival is always the announcement of the Festival Muse.

Rogue Festival Performer Preview: Naked Zombie, Comedy at the Rogue

by Ron Jones

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!

Rogue Festival Performer Preview: Babe In The Hollywood

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!
