The Tony Martini Variety Hour is running this Saturday, August 10th at the Three Clubs.
A desperate variety show clinging to the art, music, and style that worked so well in the late 50s and early 60s takes the stage this Saturday night in the city of fallen angels! Amazing performers put everything they can into an art form we thought went away with the Star Wars Holiday Special! Come and marvel at the madness!
Tony Martini, your host, and titular lounge singer-y guy is portrayed by global comedy legend Mark Fite. Mark sings, jokes, and frequently falls flat on his face. Luckily, Martini is accompanied by his super talented wife, Bananas Foster. Foster could only be played by international accordion phenomenon Renee Albert. Jim Turner plays their less than kind and understanding manager.
Produced by Steven Espinosa, the cast is joined by a veritable mob of Los Angeles finest variety acts: Michael Rayner, Pam Severns, Karl Herlinger, April Showers, Olive Oz and the always incredible contortionist Bonnie Morgan.
I'm gonna be there! Join us Saturday, August 10th at the Three Clubs. Doors open at 7pm. Show starts at 8pm.

Taylor Swift may speak to her home state, but MTv’s former presidential hopeful Randee of the Redwoods may be more effective to rally Happy Mutant voters! Randee reminds us of our youth, while encouraging everyone to register and to vote. Just say “Whoa!”
It’s impossible for anyone to truly escape the effects our COVID-19 lifestyle changes have made, but if you’re a web developer, there’s a decent chance your work life might be virtually unchanged. Even before the quarantines and work-from-home orders, over 16 percent of web developers were already self-employed. And with a growing number of tech […]
Even though life is emerging following our COVID-19 lockdown, it’s not exactly time to celebrate defeating the insidious virus just yet. CDC officials warn that once a resurgence of the virus hits this winter, it could prove even more disastrous for the U.S. healthcare system than the opening salvo. That would follow the pattern suffered […]
When you were 10 and your mom demanded you finish your vegetables or go to your room, you were mad. Even as kids, we hated it when we were ordered to do something. Car insurance is a federal mandate, yet that’s only one of the reasons why most Americans would rather do just about anything […]
