Description

Frank Olivier’s Twisted Cabaret and Pandemonium Vaudeville is back! It’s a zany evening of demented fun. Olivier and his hunchback assistant Flynch (played by Unkle Paul Nathan) and the Twisted Cabaret Band return for a limited 3 show run, performing their outrageous thrill-show with Olivier’s wildly funny characters doing 12 astonishing & hilarious acts – from knife-throwing, magic and contortion to fire-eating, juggling, dancing girls and more. Twisted Cabaret is a fast-paced astounding tour de force with the multi-talented Olivier charting the unexplored outer edges of comedy.

Since last here, Olivier, a Berkeley native, has taken his show ‘Twisted Cabaret’ from England to Las Vegas. Olivier honed his skills on comedy club stages, and in theaters from New York to London, throughout Europe and Japan. His ‘Tonight Show’ appearances & other television shows have made him one of the most sought after variety performers anywhere.
