Valarie Apperson/ Cults & Cyber Subversion – A Variety Show
A fluid mix of songs from my album Figurine by Fair Voyeur and jokes from my 5-6 years of standup comedy in between the jokes to symbolize my migration from a musician breaking out of a cult and marriage to her groomer…
…to the type of person who dares to infiltrate the top cybersecurity executives of the world and distribute a TOTALLY FICTIONAL 5 page script about a girl who leads the charge in an army that hacks a Presidential candidate’s hotel empire (which I would ask Shawn to read with me) and shits ALLL over her former groomer with tight punchlines.

James Crowley/ James Crowley: Almost Famous
James Crowley dreamed of being a music journalist from the age that he realized that he wasn’t talented enough to be in a band. During his years as a fan and writer, he had his fair share of crazy experiences covering the music world, specifically punk rock, where he felt most at home. Almost Famous is about the connection that you can have with a community, while experiencing hijinks along the way. From dealing with mean fellow concertgoers to almost falling in love in a moshpit, James shares hilarious concert stories from his journey.
