A ONE PERSON SHOW...with other people!
A One person show.. with other people is 3 acts from different views by local Portlanders of life in Portland,America and of the world from 3 different people from different backgrounds with one common thing... the world could use more humor.
First act- is the well-known and Portland's own and most beloved PDX treasure, THE ONE AND ONLY! MISS BOLIVIA CARMICHAEL!!! Bolivia is a well-known performer/ radio host/entrepreneur. A well-loved if not the MOST well-loved Drag Queen on the circuit today. This amazingly and talented beautiful performer with a heart of gold and endless talent to spare will win you over. Miss B is defiantly the go to gal in the LGBT community for some time now. Her cutting comedy edge, her transformations of famous entertainers ( We hate to call it imitations because she transcends that, she channels the artist) she can make you laugh and cry. Whether she chooses to do Lucy or Bette you never know what you will get we she takes the stage that night. Except one thing. You will love her and laugh very hard! And you will understand why she is so beloved!
Second Act- The upcoming and irrepressible is THE REAL HIGH JINX. One of the hottest, upcoming talents emerging out of Portland scene today. Coming back from a recent sold out comedy ensemble tour of the Southwest United States. You have to catch this man before he makes it big time when you can say you saw him when. His take on lifeas a married man, a father and a fellow traveler on the planet earth with the rest of live is refreshing. Being an African American gives his perspective such sparkle. Combine all of those elements with his hilarious physical and quick wit that will have you howling with laughter . THE REAL HIGH JINX you will discover is smart, clever and appeals to people of all types. Cause funny is funny. THE REAL HIGH HIJINX, the man is SO FUNNY! We are so lucky that both Bolivia and the real High Jinx have found the time to graciously donate their skills for this great cause. As after they are done they have other gigs. They are BOTH in demand. This is a rare chance to see them both at one time.
Third Act - J.Z. Not the rapper. The other one he spells his Jay-Z. Since this J.Z. is of the Caucasian Persuasion he raps, but not very well. Nor is he married to Beyoncé. He has also had this name registered since the other one was is diapers. This two time Emmy award wining producer/director/ performer/choreographer/sonic sculptor is bringing his soon to be published selections from his soon to be published book " Moms Ankle High Trout" to the stage. Since selections of this book are for a non linear multi platform book it will become very apparent why selections must be read aloud. Included will be selections from his Grand Prize winner of The Santa Cruz Video Festival short form video " A GnU cLeAr faM ilLy". This portion of the show is in 2 sections with an intermission. The best way to describe what he does is performance art..we think that is what is called. Included will also be live and lip synced selections from his CD " The subject was R" and a live mash-up that is guaranteed to blow your mind. And he has a very deliciously sly style of humor. Being dual citizen Canadian/American the dude prefers to spell it HUMOUR just to be difficult. In all honesty, there is no one like him. There was no mold when they made him. He says allergies to mold is why he is the way he is. (?) He however unlike Bolivia and The real hijinx has nothing to do after the show and can most likely be found on the street trying to remember where he parked his car so he can go see the other two perform. Luckily Tri Met is close.
All 3 are collaborating for one night only limited seating 90 seats for a great cause the Cascade Aids Project ( CAPS)! It will be taped for a possible show on Showtime or Comedy Central in early 2015. And portions of the show will be included in the book Moms Lush Ankle High Trout.
There will be some excellent wine available for purchase at more than a reasonable price from the good folks Tom Harvey and Andria Shirk of the Portland Wine Storage! Thanks you both.
Oh and onsite parking at the Hipbone Studio too!
So come, sit back and "let us entertain you and you will have a real good time. Yes sir! A real, good, time!"-Gypsy- * This will be the only show tune...maybe.
