Brad Lawrence and Cyndi Freeman (AKA: Handsome Brad and Cherry Pitz) present weird ideas, left field antics, and heart felt oddness culled from and inspired by their long histories in independent theater. Drawing on the best and brightest performers from the storytelling, burlesque, and sideshow scenes of New York, and beyond, they present a new concept in the funny and the strange during their quarterly residence at Horse Trade Theater.
Nefarious Laboratory has decided to kick off its partnership with Horse Trade by lying to the paying public: Only some of Brad's friends are naked. The others are brilliant musicians, comics, and sideshow performers. Together with the finest in New York Burlesque they present an evening of variety entertainment. Part Carson era tonight show, part Addam's Family, and entirely uncensored. Lawrence is co-producer of Nefarious Laboartory. He is the host of Best In Show.
