FINAL SEASON AT THE COLORADO FESTIVAL!
“How did it get so late so soon?” – Dr. Seuss
- PUKE Ah Snot, every year when I step out on this stage my eyes tear up a little.
- SNOT Because of all the good memories?
- PUKE No, because we're downwind from the privies.
- SNOT It’s a renaissance festival, they all smell like this.
- PUKE You call it a renaissance festival, I call it The Museum of Forgotten Haircuts.
- SNOT Call it what you will. [SIGH]
- PUKE Why the long face?
- SNOT I was bitten by a dog at the front gate.
- PUKE Hmmm…any side effects?
- SNOT Yeah, I’ve been banned at court for sniffing the queen’s butt.
- (Opening dialogue from the 2013 show)
All the good memories. In 1981 Puke and Snot made their Colorado debut in the lanes and under the tall pines of Larkspur. Thirty-two years later, it’s time to end this desperate but heroic fight against gravity and make room for younger actors with fresher cartilage and healthier prostates. So this summer marks the swan song of the Puke & Snot Show at the Colorado Renaissance Festival, get your tickets early and don’t wait till the final weekends, they may not have the strength to make it all the way to the end of July.
As of this date, there are no plans to retire from either the Minnesota or Maryland shows, those festivals are less mountainous and therefore less likely to induce cardio pulmonary incidents in mature actors. Check the schedule for dates for all the festivals, this will be a full season of shows from mid-June to near the end of October.
Colorado Weekends June 15th - August 4th
Minnesota Weekends and Labor Day August 17th – September 29th
Maryland Weekends October 5th – 20th
The latest in a series of extremely annoying Puke & Snot albums is now available at the P & S store on the web site and at festivals where the boys are performing. Recorded at the Colorado Renaissance Festival in front of a live audience, much like yourselves, this fast-moving, one-hour-plus CD contains the latest and best of the longest running and most successful festival act in history, including "Puke & The Beanstalk," "The Clopper Caper," "Electile Dysfunction," and nine more tracks guaranteed to put you asleep at the wheel right there in your driveway. Features John Gamoke as Snot in his first ever recorded performance.
EXTREMELY PUKE & INCREDIBLY SNOT could very well end up a collector's item.
