FRANK OLIVIER'S TWISTED CABARET COMEDY VARIETY SHOW
THE GATEWAY THEATRE in San Francisco, California
“Frank Olivier’s Twisted Cabaret is a hilarious, action packed comedy variety show with amazing feats of magic, romance, juggling, burlesque, acrobatics and Cirque – Zinzanni style acts. TWISTED CABARET is like a ‘One man Cirque du Soleil meets Penn and Teller.
‘It’s the night of the big comedy varieté show and the stage is set.’
The theater is packed, but the tour bus with all the performers has broken down. Now Olivier must pull off the show of his life, and perform all sixteen acts himself, aided only by his lowly stagehand-turned-emcee.
Frank Olivier has been seen on The Tonight Show, as well as America’s Got Talent, Ellen, and HBO’s Just For Laughs. He is a favorite at Seattle’s Moisture Festival, the largest comedy/varietè festival in the world. Long time fans cherish his Helen Hays Award nominated performance in the Broadway touring show Sugar Babies (with Mickey Rooney and Ann Miller). His latest work, “Tricks To Happiness” is part comedy show, part autobiographical, part Ted Talk, and all hilarious. Frank combines his unique off-beat brand of comedy, juggling and magic with a lifelong practice of meditation for a one-man comedy-thrill experience that’s heavy on “tricks” and loaded with happiness.
Paul Nathan plays the role of the lowly stagehand-turned-emcee. He’s been seen on HBO, MTV, and Star Trek Voyager, as well as in his own “I Hate Children Children’s Show”, voted best children’s show at the Edinburgh International Festival in Scotland.

“This is, without a doubt, one of the most excellent and incredible live shows I have ever seen. Hands down. Don’t miss it!”
”I have not laughed that much in a long time. Frank Olivier is an amazing entertainer. I took my wife and two teenagers to the show last night and we all liked the show. We found ourselves talking about it today a few times. Don’t miss it!”
“Highly recommend seeing this!!!!”
“The San Francisco show was great fun!”
“My son and his girlfriend saw your show in Santa Monica on Saturday and said they have never laughed so much from the beginning to the end.”
“Great, wacky fun! Lot’s of ‘how did he do that?” moments.”
“Really fun time with a great clown and circus performer.”
“The funniest gut splitting hilarity pandemonium and fun. Frank Olivier is a master entertainer. Gogogo!!!!”
“Everyone NEEDS to see this show! It is incredible!”
“The show was fun filled, mad cap and an explosion of comedy, fun, juggling, magic and utter nonsense. My kind of show.”
“It would take any other human 10 lifetimes to acquire Frank’s mad skills. He’s a one man magic circus carnival, without the unpleasant smell. You’ll laugh with eyes agape.”
“Best sleight of hand guy I’ve ever seen. And I used to take my son here regularly as a kid to see the best up-close guys. But none of them juggled active firing tasers and machetes on a 7 foot unicycle while eating fire!”
“WOW!!!!! Amazingly fun! This show is PACKED with variety arts talent!”
“It’s a truly “edge-of-your-seat” comedy- suspense-amazement type of show!”
“GO SEE IT. He is amazing.”
