“…packed with wit…” – Jay Harvey Upstage
“…never lets up on the clever wordplay.” – NUVO

After musically skewering comic books, musicians, science fiction, corporations, fantasy, and denial, satirical songwriting superhero Captain Ambivalent returns to take on a genre he is infinitely less familiar with. Come celebrate romantic density and whisper those three little words, propellor beanie chicken. Original comedy songs and PowerPoint.

Allow Time To Get From Box Office To Show

Please buy a $3.00 Fringe button at Fringe Central for admission to the festival as a whole, as well as your ticket for admission to this specific show. (Button sales support the Festival, ticket sales support the artist.)

Elgin Fringe Festival Safety Policies

Limited capacities for all shows – all ticket sales for all venues are set for 50% of what they would be for a “normal” EFF set up.

Enhanced cleaning procedures between every performance, including necessary tech equipment.
Spacing encouraged among audience members not in the same party and between the audience and the performers.

Properly worn masks are required of all audience members, EFF staff, artists, volunteers, and audiences (unless eating or drinking while at Martini Room or Blue Box Café). Those who are unwilling or unable to wear a mask will be asked to leave.
