We interrupt this broadcast to bring you a special announcement!

Hello friends!

Hope you're all enjoying the fabulous fruits of this quirky little podcast. Little moment of shameless self-promotion here, seeing as I run this damn blog. I'm starting a theatre company! And I need YOUR help!

We have SEVEN DAYS left of our Kickstarter campaign to kick this baby into high gear. Our show is a modern re-imagining of Edgar Allan Poe's The Fall of the House of Usher. Expect spills, thrills and chills as we stage an hour's worth of disturbing psychological horror as part of the London Horror Festival, 2014.

We have a wickedly talented cast, and we're hoping that this project is just the beginning. Since we're trying to raise such a small amount, literally any size of pledge will help us and make a huge impact.

Thank you all, dear listeners, for your continued support. You mean the world to me.

Biggest love,

Born somewhere between London and Hell, international vaudevillian Lou Safire has been strutting his stuff across nation since 2008. Working on new and unusual burlesque projects with a bohemian streak, Lou is trained in many aspects of dance, bringing this to the stage through his routines involving strip tease and fan dancing. Not one to shy away from the heat, Lou's fire performances leave you red hot. Using classic routines, Lou's lust for the darker side of vaudeville takes him to a new level combining circus skills with traditional freak show stunts.
