The Go Go: The Facts of Life, Funny Mash-up,

Old school birds and bees.
Old School Facts of Life

The weather is cooling — hurray! — but you’ll still want to know about these pre-Hump Day, air-conditioned events around town.


Sizzle Reel

The Cinefamily Movie Theater may be air-conditioned but the show tonight is hot, hot, hot.

Bring those hand fans, people.

That’s Sexploitation! pretty much sells itself but this peek into pre-Sexual Revolution peep shows, stag films, “smokers”, and nudist colony “documentaries” is as hilarious and sweetly smutty as it is pulchritudinous.

Think of it as X Fun and Games.

The encyclopedic collection of clips from the 1930’s through the 1970’s  traces the history of the nudie genre with interstitial commentary provided by the late David F. Friedman who  is credited as the film’s director.

The genial sleaze-meister looks back fondly on his days of producing and promoting in the pre-hardcore porn days; according to Friedman, the genre saved theaters from the wrecking ball after T.V. stole audiences away from the movies.

Those of a certain age may have other reasons to be grateful to Friedman.

You know who you are.

THAT’S SEXPLOITATION! Mon, Sept 9 @ 8pm; $14Cinefamily, 611 No Fairfax Ave, LA 90036\


Where Comedy and Poop Faces Meet

You’ve been to comedy shows.

You’ve been to art shows.

But unless you follow A Working Theater (aWT) — and you really should be following this Hollywood Fringe Fest fave — it’s unlikely you’ve seen a show like re:Mix.

The broad premise of Tuesday’s show  is the introduction of two art/performance mediums that rarely meet: amazement, delight, and/or hilarity subsequently ensue.

For aWT’s third re:Mix, stand-up comics Eddie Pepitone, Jerrod Carmichael, Moses Storm, Dave Ross, Christian Correa, Fahim Anwar, and Jade Catta-Preta will each be paired with a (presumably sit-down) animator, caricaturist, or cartoonist who will illustrate the comic’s riff ON THE SPOT!

Scribbled “poop faces” are promised.  Natch.

In addition to comedy and cartoon worlds colliding, the evening’s fun at the Dragonfly includes music, a visual art gallery, and everyone’s favorite artistic medium: a full bar.

You can’t wait to get creative.

A WORKING THEATER PRESENTS RE:MIXTues, Sept 10, 8pm – 2am; $3 in advance/$5 atdDragonfly, 6510 Santa Monica Blvd, LA 90038
