To celebrate, he is presenting a new edition of his long-running American Vaudeville Theatre (est. 1995) featuring himself, Wilfredo (Matt Roper), Glen Heroy, Betsy Propane, Dana Friedman, Bob Greenberg, Jonathan Smith and Daniela Paiewonsky. Surreal comedy, song, dance, and a visit from the Ghost of Georgie Jessel!

Wilfredo
Wilfredo
Big teeth, tight pants and a singing voice to die for! That’s Wilfredo – a lover, singer, poet and drinker who charms the birds down from the trees all over the world. Grotesque, deluded but always loveable, Wilfredo is the powerhouse comedy creation who has won hearts at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, the Adelaide Fringe and at the Magners International Comedy Festival in both Manila and Singapore. In South Africa, Wilfredo performed to over 20,000 people at the Cape Town Funny Festival, while Reykjavik Kabarett in Iceland have claimed him as one of their own. Based in New York City, his late-night appearances as host at the Slipper Room have fast become the stuff of legend. wilfredo.es
