I love Wavy but the "show" was boring much too impromptu, very disorganized, and just nothing with nothing

Because Wavy Gravy has been part of our lives since his appearance in the movie Woodstock we felt compelled to go see him. If you are a fan of his then this show was a treat otherwise it may have appeared disjointed and unprofessional. But we...continued

Description

Running time: 90 minutes, with no intermission.

Wavy Gravy recounts his life and times, spilling proverbial beans, and promises at least some reference to the holidays. There are hints of Claude Rains Deer, or should that be Clawed Reindeer, and a vague mention of Insanity Claus. That, along with a photo of a sprightly Wavy—in full St. Nick regalia, merrily jumping into a cop car outside San Quentin for protesting the death penalty—is all the information we have. Not to be missed! Best known to millions as the inspiration for a Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavor—I am an activist clown and former frozen dessert," says Wavy—it is through his good work on behalf of the planet and its least fortunate residents that Wavy Gravy has achieved his own brand of sainthood. 

His friend and satirist Paul Krassner has called him “the illegitimate son of Harpo Marx and Mother Teresa.” Wavy says, “Some people tell me I’m a saint, I tell them I’m Saint Misbehavin’.” (which is also the name of Michelle Estrick’s critically-acclaimed documentary on Wavy). All performances will benefit Seva Foundation and Camp Winnarainbow.
