Fabulous Fringe:

A Speakeasy Gala
Tampa International Fringe Festival will host its first annual fundraiser this year, where you can beat the post-holiday blues by joining us for a double feature of award-winning Fringe Shows on Friday, January 20th, 2023, including a delicious, award-winning Italian-fusion dinner, and drinks at Bernini’s in Ybor, in the sumptuous, secret gem of a private space, on the third floor.
Tickets on Friday include: 2 hour-long multi Award-Winning fringe shows, light appetizers, a buffet style dinner in between shows, and 2 of Bernini’s famous Western Son martinis! The evening will also include a silent auction featuring unique wares from many local businesses.
The Shows:
Paul Strickland: 90 Lies an Hour
“90 Lies an Hour” is a collection of Hilarious Tall-Tales and other fictions from multi-award winning humorist and storyteller Paul Strickland. “90 Lies an Hour” won BEST SOLO SHOW, COMEDY at the Orlando International Fringe Theatre Festival, an official ENCORE Award at the Cincinnati Fringe Festival, a Storytelling World Awards Honor, and has been performed at Universities, Performing Arts Centers and Storytelling Festivals all across the US and Canada. 
Vulva VaVoom: Hollywood Psychic of the Golden Age
Gritty comedian Vulva Va-Voom gets a mysterious gift…or is that “grift?” She ditches her Vaudeville schtick for a supernatural talent: contacting stars of the 1950s. With help from a dummy possessed by Jimmy Stewart, the nightclub ne’er-do-well battles an uptight intellectual property lawyer & the fleeting nature of fame itself. From the triple threat behind 3 Fringe “Edge Award”-winning pieces comes this risqué, goth-y cavalcade of nerdiness.
Thursday: We will also be hosting a Preview Night of JUST the two shows on Thurs Jan 19th.
Our mission has always been to provide local and global artists a platform, helping make their work accessible and affordable, and to diversify the arts on offer in the greater Tampa Bay area by increasing exposure to artists from different perspectives and cultural origins. We are expanding to create opportunities and spaces for artists around the Bay area throughout the year, and have ambitions to run a space to incubate these artists.
