4TH ANNUAL BILICIOUS BOSTON SHOW


Bilicious returned to Boston’s Club Cafe for its fourth annual bisexual-themed multimedia variety show for two nights, on November 8 & 9, 2013. Open to theatergoers of all persuasions, this thought-provoking evening playfully mixed serious issues with entertainment through film, comedy, poetry, and burlesque. Featured performers were Tiggy Upland, Laurie Wolfe, UnAmerika's Sweetheart Karin Webb, Michael Monroe and Bobby Crawford. Video interviews by Bilicious producer and filmmaker Susannah Layton introduced each performer on stage before their performance. Audience participation was encouraged during a Q&A discussion with the performers and the producer immediately after the performance.

 



Tiggy Upland

Tiggy Upland, the Wild Deuce, is the advice columnist for the Bisexual Resource Center. Found abandoned as a baby in a hot air balloon basket in Truth or Consequences, NM, Tiggy grew up working in her adoptive family’s hydrotherapy business and exploring her own fluidity. She rode the rails all over the country, selling her family’s homemade panacea and giving advice to the friends she met along the way, likely solicited because she was the only hobo in a vintage day dress and full make-up. She prefers to think of herself as 1950s style on 1960s drugs. Tiggy’s advice column for the Bisexual Resource Center runs every other Tuesday on www.biresource.net

Michael Monroe

Michael found slam by being dragged to “some sort of poetry thing” one winter's night in 2008, and boy did he think it would be the World’s Worst Poetry Ever. But after one hit of high-caliber spoken word performance he immediately decided his pursuits as a proficient fire-spinner, jazz pianist and juggler were clearly boring, and he’s worked to refine his writing and performance skills ever since. He regularly features throughout New England, has been the Development Director for the wildly successful 2011 & 2013 National Poetry Slams, co-runs the infamous 365 Challenge Blog, and was a member of the 2012 Mill City Slam Team.

Bobby Crawford

Bobby Crawford is the “one-man-boy-band” of Emerson College. He discovered the Boston Poetry Slam at the Cantab Lounge in his freshman year (via Emerson’s slam scene, the Emerson Poetry Project) and has been an avid open mic reader and slammer at the Boston Poetry Slam ever since.  A competitor and showman by instinct, Bobby is a retired nationally-ranked figure skater and a former chess-club kid. He plays harmonica and wears a leather jacket. He loves late night food and hanging out with other writers/performers. For more info: website
