Entertainment for People is back in 2011!
Entertainment for People is a variety show featuring cartoons, sketch comedy, poetry, film, and more. The line up looks intriguing:
Matt will be showing his political cartoons on Tea-Baggers, our awesome wars, the lovely economy and some very special fan mail he receives. . .
Matt Bors is an editorial cartoonist and comic journalist who has cartooned from Afghanistan and released the graphic novel War Is Boring with journalist David Axe.
Matthew might read a poem about the death of goldfish, a poem about your ankles, a poem that has Kung Fu dvd’s in it, and maybe a poem where his father becomes a Russian Mail-Order Bride.
Matthew is the author of All-American Poem (APR/Copper Canyon Press 2008). He lives and works in Portland, Oregon where he was born 100 years ago in 1975. He has had poems published in McSweeny’s, The Believer, The New Yorker, and other disreputable places.
Riley Michael Parker
PREMIERING A BRAND NEW SHORT FILM…a dramatization of the stark realities of high school wrestling, frisky teenagers, and what it takes to stay under weight.
This is one man’s true story. Parker has a thing for werewolves. Well, not like a thing – there’s no lust involved or anything, but it’s like a thing. I mean the girl from THE HOWLING II is really foxy, but that’s not his fault, is it? Also he’s a fiction writer, a filmmaker, and a mediocre lover. Also he drinks too much coffee. Also his license is expired.
Ritah Parrish and Sarah Grace McCandless
“Are you there, God? It’s us, Ritah and Sarah Grace.” These two fine lookin’ ladies will be performing a new piece that demonstrates how to live adult life by the Judy Blume adolescent code. Sarah Grace killed in front of throngs of blood-thirsty teen angst lovers at Mortified, and has two much-acclaimed novels from Simon & Schuster, The Girl I Wanted to Be, and Grosse Pointe Girl. Ritah is a Portland stage veteran, performing in loads of different comedy and theater venues. Look for her in the upcoming awesome short film, Stella’s Flight.
B. Frayn Masters
Masters’ll be performing some kind of new and ridiculous thing. You may recognize the name as she is one of the co-hosts and founders of Back Fence PDX. Recently, B. Frayn has graced stages with readings from her work in McSweeney’s, Hobart, and as Cherry Daniels in GGW magazine. She will be premiering her brand new webisodic series, Desiree’s Days, soon.
Tickets are $15 at the door – Visit BackFencePDX.com for more information.
