Outlandish, a live performance series that debuted in Palm Springs last fall, returns to the Palm Springs Cultural Center with an expanded lineup. Produced by Logo TV Founder Matt Farber and the Palm Springs Cultural Center, the series will feature six iconic acts known in the LGBT community, each of whose appeal has crossed over to a mainstream audience.
Outlandish kicks off on Friday, October 26, 2018, when John Waters performs his one-man show “This Filthy World-2018!” a “vaudeville” act that celebrates the film career and obsessive tastes of “The Pope of Trash.” This joyously devious and continuously updated monologue is a rally cry against the tyranny of good taste and serves as a call to arms for filth followers.
Palm Springs Tourism national spokesperson Miss Richfield 1981 makes her annual return to Palm Springs over Pride Weekend, Saturday, November 3. In her brand new show “Born Again“, Miss R is finding new religion to bring our divided world together. Known for unique audience interaction and comedic songs and videos, she sells out the Palm Springs Cultural Center each year.
Next up, iconic international celebrity airhostess Pam Ann flies into Palm Springs on Saturday, November 10. Since first jetting out of her hometown of Melbourne 20 years ago, Pam – the alter ego of Australian comedian-writer-producer Caroline Reid – has developed a cult like status both here and overseas. In her new show “Flight Attendant Star“, Pam selects air hostie wannabes from the audience to see if they have what takes!
Internet sensation Randy Rainbow makes his triumphant return to Palm Springs after two sold out show last year. Randy will bring his new show to his two night run on Saturday, November 17 and Sunday, November 18. In “Live-2018!” the social media satirist known for his popular political spoofs and musical parodies takes the audience on a journey with live recreations of new videos, new stories to share, and some healthy communal catharsis.
Following her crowning as the winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars earlier this year, Trixie Mattel has returned- new and improved! In “Now With Moving Parts,” we dial down and dig deep into the psyche of the life-size legend. “Moving Parts” is a decoupage of brand new folk music and surrealist comedy that only Trixie Mattel could hot glue together- guitar picking, razor-sharp reads, and hair teased to the sky! Giddyup!
The series concludes on Saturday, December 8 with San Francisco's famed gay male revue, Baloney. Bringing fantasies to life with their signature blend of comedy and burlesque, The Baloney Boys are part theater, part dance, and part peep show, ALL male!
“I'm thrilled to partner again with the Palm Springs Cultural Center to bring this unique series to Palm Spring this fall” said Matt Farber. “Each of these six extremely talented acts from the worlds of comedy, film, drag, and performance art grew out of the LGBT community and bring audiences together to laugh, cry, think, and emote.”
“We are thrilled to once again host the Outlandish Performance Series at the Palm Springs Cultural Center, and participate with Matt Farber as a sponsor for the series,” said Michael C. Green, Executive Director, Palm Springs Cultural Center. “Matt has put together (once again) a stellar line-up of LGBTQ entertainers for Palm Springs audiences.”
