Tampa Fringe Dandy Darkly's Myth Mouth! says
Acclaimed Alt-Cabaret Storyteller to make Tampa International Fringe Festival Debut!

Dandy Darkly is New York City’s cult storytelling sensation with a masterful and mesmerizing style of immersive alt-cabaret storytelling that has astounded critics and delighted audiences at Fringe festivals and theaters across the globe.

Dandy is the glittery, ghastly jewel of New York’s East Village; a critically acclaimed satirist tackling such varied topics as gun violence, misogyny, gentrification and political correctness. Dandy Darkly’s delirious delivery shifts seamlessly between the horrific and poignant all with thoughtful critiques on modern life.

Dandy Darkly’s Myth Mouth! explores themes of religion, addiction and social media obsession via tales concerning a junkie Persephone, space-pup Laika, virtual reality fixation and humanity’s premiere popinjay, Cha-Cha the Caveman. Dandy Darkly cites the works of folklorist Joseph Campbell, recent celebrity deaths, his childhood love of mythology and personal struggles with substance abuse as influences for crafting Dandy Darkly’s Myth Mouth!

Dandy regales his wondrous tales of humanity and horror alongside a nonstop soundscape of prerecorded music composed by long time collaborators Adam Tendler (piano), Rachel Blumberg (percussion), and Bryce Edwards (bass guitar). The show is peppered with eclectic sound effects to create a truly immersive storytelling experience. Ian Bjorklund returns as director.

"Fantastical fairytale horror, equal parts Tennessee Williams, Edgar Allen Poe and Bruce LaBruce with a dash of Brothers Grimm for good measure.” ★★★★ (Time Out)

"A decidedly wicked storyteller." (New York Times)

“Storytelling that goes beyond simple tales. Rhythmic, hypnotic, entrancing.” ★★★★ (Broadway Baby)

"New York City's King of Halloween." (Out Magazine)

"Stories of gruesomely compelling verve -- a cross between Pam Ayres, Liberace and Tales from the Crypt." ★★★★ (The Scotsman)

"Simply one of the most thoughtful, hilarious and harrowing queer talents at work today." ★★★★★ (Scotsgay Magazine)
