About the Event
Forgotten Fantasies is a pop culture "This is Your Life" styled panel show wherein comedians & local celebrities share memories of obscure shows & movies from their distant past they've never gone back to revisit. We then play and riff on the most absurd clips possible in front of a live audience. Sometimes emotional, sometimes hilarious, always weird.
Featuring gonzo TV & film clips, vintage commercials, & a lot of fuzzy memories.
This month’s Forgotten Fantasy: TOMES & TALISMANS
Superstar guest Andy Iwancio brings us her childhood memories of Tomes & Talismans, a children's series The New Yorker described as: "Quite possibly the finest post-apocalyptic educational series about library science ever produced by Mississippi Public Television."
We will also joined by Portland comedy kingpin, Nariko Ott, who will be riffing on a number of other apocalypse themed shows that may or may not feature libraries.
Vintage commercial, waterbeds, fallout shelters, and a video preshow that should not be missed.
About our Guests:
Andy Iwancio: Andy is a transgender gal comedian from Seattle who waxes poetics on being transgender, growing boobs, and then, subsequently,shaking those boobs because of her epilepsy. So, all of that, plus puns.
Nariko Ott - Portland's Funniest Person 2016 & co-Host of the What's More Metal? Podcast. He is the host of “The Cool Kids” comedy show at the legendary Doug Fir in Portland.
“If you're like, 'Um who TF is Nariko Ott?' I AM SAD FOR YOU.”
- Portland Mercury
These guests are 100% fire, you don't want to sleep on this one.
So come on out and join Michael Garcia and Avalon Leonetti as we take a dip in a pool of collective nostalgia.
