If you missed the first two weekends of "Sxip's Hour of Charm" at Zero Arrow Theatre, I feel truly sorry for you. Why? Because you missed Meow Meow, a lounge singer/comedian who made me laugh so hard I was in tears.
By the end of her act, she had half a dozen audience members holding her up in the air while she sang and barked orders between lines. Despite the fact that her crotch (fully clothed) was in some guy's face, she somehow remained glamorous -- and hilarious.
The good news is, Sxip Shirey's variety show has one weekend left, Sept. 28-30. Shirey will be performing his strangely beautiful compositions once again, including one with something called an "obnoxiophone," along with performances by a rope-spinning cowboy, a storyteller, an acrobat (who did a heart-in-mouth-inducing ceiling walk last weekend), and two singers.
I highly recommend checking it out. You never know who you might end up holding upside down onstage.
