Sak Comedy Lab: Sak: Midwife at the Birth of Fringe
“Sak Comedy Lab, which was the midwife at the birth of the Fringe Festival 20 years ago, pays a visit to its baby, all grown up now — and asks when it’s going to get a job, cut its hair and settle down with a nice girl … or boy … or both. After all, it IS Fringe.”
Sak will be doing a special “slice of life” musical production highlighting the past 20 years of Orlando Fringe done in 20 minutes
Come be a part of this fun and fabulous evening as we celebrate our first 20 years and look forward to the next 20! .
