Celebrate American bars with comedic satire Tipped & Tipsy, winner at the 2013 San Francisco Fringe Festival. You'll meet bartender Candy, three of her hard-drinking regulars, the lascivious bar owner and a collection of other saloon staples. You'll laugh as Candy, with the help of a few cocktails, transforms this collection of lonely drunks into a loving family and feel her pain as she tries to keep her favorite regular from drinking himself to death. Written and performed by Jill Vice, a bartender herself, this production showcases her remarkable physical comedy skills as she transforms into various characters without any help from set or costume changes.

Reviews & Ratings
Elect To Laugh with Will Durst and Friends! is a hysterical hybrid chasing down the presidential election cycle like white on rice with material as up to date as the latest tweet from DC. It will blend monologues and commentary and perhaps the occasional rant. The show’s intent is to blur the traditional boundaries between stand- up comedy and theater. Through innovation, experimentation and a ravenous appetite for accessing the topical via the jugular, Durst and Company are out to prove that jokes are not the enemy.
Descendants of Mark Twain, George Carlin and Spalding Gray, Durst and his rotating cast will every Tuesday twist the rhythm of stand-up with poetry, punditry and puzzles o’plenty planting the production solidly in the strictures and structures of a deconstructed one man show. Or solo performance piece. Whatever. With a single aim: to mock and scoff and taunt, but with taste. Consider it political comedy for people who don’t like politics.
The show runs approximately 90 minutes, and is recommended for ages 18 and up.
