April 27th was a great night to be home watching the Bindlestiff Open Stage Quarantine Edition Variety show. A wonderful lineup and so much talent on the screen. (Usually presented as a LIVE SHOW!)
Keith Nelson introduces the show and the evenings festivities.
Joe Barney performed a little ‘carny’ magic with 3 rubber frogs.
Olivia Porter performed a wonderful eccentric dance/mime performance piece with a beer bottle.
Catskill Kenny (Kenny Raskin) told a few corny jokes and then sang some wonderful songs with his ukulele. This song we could certainly enjoy now!
Dan Wasdahl performed several amazing stunts all at once. Juggling clubs, hula-hoop, spinning a ball on a mouth stick and Rolla-Bolla.
Host Keith Nelson introduced to the viewers an age-old stunt. The spinning top.
The Fleet Family 5 performed a straight jacket ‘mass-escape’ by the 3 boys. Put in the straight jackets and then into cardboard boxes and then taped shut! (they had flashlights!) They escaped quickly and with lots of ‘pizazz’.
Beth Beauary performed a beautiful aerial silk act.
Stephanie Monseu celestially invites the viewers to participate in an online survey.
Adam Gertsakov performed the ‘The Barbie Oedipus”.
Gena Schvartsman Cristiani performed an amazing act with clubs, hats and balls.
And then (with the help of a confederate) gave Ellia a wonderful Bindlestiff tradition – Pie in the Face!
