Most days, what’s going on in American politics is enough to make one’s head turn. But with you know who in office, my head feels like it has twisted so far that it may come off my body completely.
That is satirist and performer Randy Rainbow comes and stops the head spinning, if only temporarily. While he has been making uploading videos to YouTube for quite a while, his name and work exploded into the public consciousness during the 2016 Presidential Election.
Last night, he played the first of two shows at the Gramercy Theater in New York City.
Singing a medley of his songs while clips of his videos played in the background, what the viewer sees on the computer screen is what the audience experiences in a live performance. Sharp as a tack, funny as h*ll and pulling no punches, Randy Rainbow provides the comedic relief we all know as we try to digest that craziness coming out of Washington D.C.
This man is a political genius. He had the audience (myself included) in stitches throughout the entire show. While we were laughing, we were being relieved (if only in the short-term) of the stress and agita that has become part of being an American in 2018. It was one of the best concerts, I’ve been to in a long time.
Do I recommend the concert? Absolutely.
Randy Rainbow Live will be playing at various locations throughout the US until the end of the year. Check the website for venues and tickets.
