Louis Pearl has been thrilling audiences around the world for nearly 30 years with the art, magic, science and fun of bubbles. He is a favorite at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where he has enjoyed eight years of sell-out success.
Louis explores the breath-taking dynamics of bubbles, combining comedy and artistry with audience participation and enough spellbinding bubble tricks to keep everyone mesmerized. From square bubbles, bubbles inside bubbles, fog-filled bubbles, giant bubbles, bubble volcanoes, tornados and trampolines to people inside bubbles, the Amazing Bubble Man conjures shrieks of laughter and gasps of amazement from all ages.
"Greatest bubble show on Earth." - SFGate.com
"It's a fantastic show. Louis Pearl playfully forms bubbles beyond imagination, and engages the audience with his easygoing nonverbal slapstick."
"Louis Pearl - aka The Amazing Bubble Man - truly deserves his title. Most of the show is accompanied by gasps and awes...and that's just the adults. Kids can be heard giggling with excitement."
"This show captivated its young audience and the adults loved it as well. Highly recommended."
–British Theater Guide.
Though the engaging documentary treads through unavoidably familiar territory ... its chorus of testifiers often find sharp new angles of approach. Like the jokes they hone, many of their insights arrive with the impact of well-crafted punchlines. -- Sheri Linden, Hollywood Reporter
Whilst painters, writers, musicians even dancers are talked about as Artists, stand-up comedians are often regarded as mere entertainers - yet their work has possibly more direct effect on an audience than any other art form. These are social and cultural commentators who at their best can change the way we think about important matters whilst making us howl with laughter. A stand-up comedian must be the writer, the director and the star performer, and unlike any other performance there is no rehearsal, no practice, no safety net, the stand-up can only work in front of a live audience - with feedback being instantaneous and often brutal. For most people baring their soul to then have an audience boo or heckle them would be a life-changing trauma, for stand-ups it's a weekly challenge. DYING LAUGHING is a unique glimpse into the agony and ecstasy of performance along with an singular examination into the day-to-day life of a professional stand-up.
MWAHO presents the Mystery Ten Minute Play Festival
The Mystery Ten Minute Play Festival will provide a puzzling peek into the behaviors of pick-up artists, a microscopic look at the enigma of life, a children's TV star with a taste for kidnapping, amnesia that may be hiding a dark secret, cutting edge law enforcement technology that can predict the future, a group of teenage girls at a sleepover where a seance goes awry, the revival of a classic show that investigates unexplained conundrums, two hard boiled detectives that just can't seem to see the truth, and it'll ask the question 'With behavioral psychologists for parents, why wouldn't you swish?"
The Rocky Horror Picture Show "BIY"
Every Saturday night since1978, the historic Clinton Street Theater has played host to The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Before Gaga told us it was okay to be "Born This Way" we had the fishnet clad sexual liberation of Frank-n-furter teling us, "Don't Dream it, Be it."
It is in the spirit of over 40 years of this liberation that we invite you to come "Be It" Yourself.
The Rocky B.I.Y. nights turn the attention on YOU the audience.
You bring the costumes!
You bring the dance numbers!
You bring the fun!
So unpack that French Maid's dress from that box behind the kids' old toys and dust off your tap shoes. Whether you are are a virgin or a veteran you'll delight in this cinematic right of passage and cherished Portland tradition.
Doors open at 11:30pm
We're not going to explain this one - you just have to see it.
