Mr. Aviner’s Variety Hour – At Dixon Place – April 27th & 28th. A Preview with interviews!

Last year I photographed an amazing collection of young variety artist that came to NY to perform in the show “Mr. Aviner’s Variety Hour’.

It was one of the best shows of young and fresh talent I had come across in a while.

Next month Josh Aviner is producing the 2nd edition of this show. I had a chance to sit down with Josh and the show’s MC Book Kennison with his associate Mike Dobson.

They spoke about the show in different ways and as such I have broke up the interviews in three parts.

Here is the link for the upcoming show! Get your tickets early as I am sure it will SELL OUT!
