HOLLYWOOD — Regional celebrities  Mr. Snapper and Mr. Buddy (they originate from a very small region) proudly and brazenly announce the rescheduling of their next variety showcase, THE MR. SNAPPER AND MR. BUDDY RUMPUS REVUE IN: “FESTIVE CRACK-UPS”.  This paganesque cacophony of sight, sound, and half-naked women was previously scheduled for April 15th, but will now be found thrilling audiences at the historic Theatre Asylum on April 29th, mere blocks from where Buster Keaton’s movie studio once stood!
“The time is ripe to really shake things up in Hollywood,” said Mr. Snapper, balancing a piano bench on his chin.  ”This is a jaded town; a cynical town.  You have to give the suckers something they’ve never seen before.  So we are rescheduling our show.  Bam!  Suck on that, Hollywood!”  Mr. Buddy, his silent partner, looks up from his hookah and nods in blissful, unknowing agreement.  His hookah smoke smells of cinnamon and hashish.  Mr. Buddy blows a series of oddly shaped smoke signals and passes out.  Mr. Snapper interprets, “Ah.  Also, we forgot to put out a press release the first time.  Our mistake.”  At this point in the interview, the piano bench falls violently to Mr. Snapper’s face, knocking him to the ground.  ”One more thing,” Snapper struggles to say as blood pools on the floor, “it’s BYOB.”
Mr. Snapper and Mr.Buddy invite you to resurrect frivolity and join them for an evening of song, variety, half-naked women and hubba hubba! Snapper, a ukulele playing songster, and his silent foil, Buddy, are your hosts, making a barely capable attempt at maintaining order as the libidinous passions of a group of ragtag performers rage wildly out of control!  Jacob Smith returns as the irrepressible Pistachio the Mime.  Burlesque from Red Snapper, the balloon art shenanigans of Rob the Balloon Guy, the musical magic of Elizabeth Luttinger, and the trombone musings of Sean Pawling round out the evening.  Also, special appearances by the Los Angeles Light Orchestra and the Craigslist Wildcard (literally whatever variety act answers the ad on Craigslist first). ONE PERFORMANCE ONLY, April 29th at 8:30 pm at Theatre Asylum in Hollywood.  Tickets are $12, available at the door.  Visit for more information.
