Cafe Racer and Jawbone Puppet Theater present: Beer and Puppet Theater, the puppet sla

Don’t miss the next installment of this fun-filled night of short form adult and experimental puppetry!

Friday, April 5, two shows at 7pm & 9pm, at Cafe Racer, 5828 Roosevelt Way NE, Seattle

Both the early and late show feature performances by some of Seattle and Vashon Island’s best puppeteers and idiots, and even a couple of cute kids in the mix!

The early show at 7pm will feature funny, surreal and violent fun for all ages, including a duplicitous 2-legged serpent, and an old lady devoured by wild beasts.

The late show at 9pm is a special racy adult only show. Expect strong language, a dirty bible story, explicit puppet on puppet sex, and unspeakable acts with a sexy mule. 

Tickets at the door $8 (no one turned away for lack of funds!)

This is our third in an ongoing series of slams. Featured performers—Steven Lipke, the big weird hairy clown prophet comes out of the woods, Linda Comer with charming puppetry and off key singing, the cute as hell Okrent-Grau Family presents “The Apple Family,” Manuel Alvarez comforts us with his gentle and hypnotic manner, The great Jason Webley will do a silly puppet show, and of course, quirky father/son act, Jawbone Puppet Theater will amaze you with what they can make the puppets do. 

Spring is right around the corner!

Enjoy a beer! Enjoy the show! 

Our puppet slam series give local artists and puppeteers a chance to fearlessly experiment, have fun, collaborate, and face the challenge of creating new work on a regular basis. The goal is to both create community and collaborative opportunity for local artists, and to treat local audiences to fun, new, experimental, and thought provoking performance art, created and presented locally. 

If you would like to join us, visit the Jawbone Puppet Studio on Vashon Island, or present or collaborate on a show at a future slam, please contact Adam Ende, founder and janitor of Jawbone Puppet Theater, at 347-455-5558. 

Stay tuned for the next installment at the end of July.
