Brutal clown show that's part teenage exorcism, part naughty slumber party . It asks the tough questions like "Where were you last night?" and "How come you're being such a cunt?" NIGHTMARE FUEL will slide into your DMs, look you right in the eyes, and tell you you're fucking crazy.
Winner of the Spirit of the Fringe Award (2019 Cincinnati Fringe Festival)
SEX TALK (the show)
Brooke Spitz, self-proclaimed sexpert, self-published children’s book author, and self-pleasured musical theatre enthusiast, is taking over the Free Fringe Cabaret with her signature musical lessons on the birds, the bees, and the sticky stuff in between. Brooke turns musical theatre tropes into sing-song gropes and will touch you in places you thought only your partner should. Special guests* will share the stage where there is much to learn - and very little left to the imagination…
*to be exposed soon
