Two hilarious comedy shows, Fancy! A Southern Gothic Camp Parable and The Teddy Teddy Show premiere together at the Cavern Club Celebrity Theater for two performances only. The second performance continues tonight, July 17th at 8 p.m.
“Chris Farah and Pete Zias, both up-and-coming gifted camp comedians, reinvigorate the genre as two “ladies of the night” share their truth as they see it,” said Producer and Sound Designer Efrain Schunior.
Starring actress and comedienne Chris Farah, Fancy! A Southern Gothic Camp Parable is the timeless story of a poor country girl turned infamous prostitute on a quest to find her own identity while overcoming the discrimination of religious ring-wing conservatives. Based on the Bobbie Gentry song “Fancy”, and made famous by Reba MacEntire, Fancy! is directed by Kurt Koehler, co-writer and creator of the Charlie’s Angels parody Chico’s Angels.
In The Teddy Teddy Show, comic and performance artist Pete Zias brings his live cable-access show to the Cavern Club as legendary New York City 90’s club kid Teddy Teddy with special guests. Teddy is directed by Julie Brister, teacher and performer at Upright Citizen’s Brigade.
