Review from panflash

The show was very entertaining and true to the name, "twisted". The Julia Morgan Center is a perfect compliment to the show. The center has rustic overtones and is set in a nice neighborhood in the heart of Berkeley. Members should arrive early...continued

Review from Regina Bergunio Gallofin

I thought the show was pretty good. It was entertaining and pretty funny, but I don't think I would go again.

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.
