Travel back in time and experience an amazing night of obscure, naughty and lovely tunes from the 1910s, '20s and '30s. Stylish flapper Klein is a true ukelele lady, and along with her band members, The Parlor Boys, will treat you to spirited and inspired renditions of Tin Pan Alley, early hot jazz, vaudeville, Yiddish novelty numbers, ragtime and other lovable, rare and rustic tunes. Film historian Jerry Beck opens the show with rare vintage 16mm film clips. Janet Klein and her Parlor Boys' latest CD release -- their seventh -- is titled Whoopee Hey Hey! Tunes to Cheer in Tumultuous Times, and reflects current-day concerns with rare and upbeat songs from the Depression era. Learn More

Quirky, edgy fun! If you like cheese, spread this event onto your favorite cracker. The cartoons were deliciously oh so bad with cheap animation, stupid scripts, and plenty of "what were they thinking?!" moments. Interspersed between the cartoons, there were skits and songs by a live troupe which included Mystery Science Theatre 3000's Frank Conniff. I especially liked Frank's depressed character's recommendation of a book called, "God's Just Not That Into You." They brought in a guest comedian (whose name escapes me at the moment) who was pretty funny. My husband and I had a great time and would recommend this show. By the way, although the cartoons were G-rated, "Cartoon Dump" is not for kids due to language in the live part of the show.
Quotes & Highlights
Imagine a world where a children's show has a cast of characters that have more psychological disorders than you... Add the mind numbing debauchery of the worst, most poorly animated cartoons from the '50s, '60s, and '70s... Throw in the wry commentary you came to love from Mystery Science Theater 3000, and what have you got? Cartoon Dump!
The unholy alliance of noted author, producer and cartoon scholar Jerry Beck and writer/ producer/ comedian Frank Conniff (TV’s Frank from Mystery Science Theater 3000). Hosted by Erica Doering as Compost Brite, Cartoon Dump! boasts a beguiling cast of characters who will bring laughter and joy into the hearts of borderline schizophrenics and catatonic acidheads the world over.
Starring Erica Doering, Kathleen Roll, Joe Keys and Eddie Pepitone.
And featuring J. Elvis Weinstein or Joel Hodgson as "Dumpster Diver Dan" and Frank Conniff as "Moodsy, the Clinically Depressed Owl"
