Frank Olivier’s Twisted Cabaret Comedy Variety Show


“A one-man reincarnation of vaudeville with a decided edge!” – S.F. Bay Guardian.

“Comedic Genius!” – Las Vegas Magazine

Frank Olivier’s hilarious comedy varieté show TWISTED CABARET promises audiences a wild ride through the circus and variety arts with amazing feats of magic, juggling, fire-eating, stilt-walking, knife-throwing, unicycling, burlesque and acrobatics like you’ve never seen!

It’s the night of the big comedy variety show. The band is ready, the stage is set, and the theater is packed..

..but the tour bus has broken down.  Now Olivier must pull off the show of his life, and perform all sixteen acts himself, aided only by Flynch, his loyal stagehand turned impromptu emcee.

“Insanely funny, outrageously multi-talented!” S.F. Examiner

You’ve seen Frank Olivier on The Tonight Show, as well as America’s Got Talent, Ellen, and HBO’s Just For Laughs, Comic Strip Live, and almost 100 other shows.  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 show Sugar Babies (with Mickey Rooney and Ann Miller).  His latest work, “Tricks To Happiness” is part comedy show  part autobiographicalpart 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.

Master magician Paul Nathan plays the role of Flynch.  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.

“Wickedly funny!” – New York Times

Twisted Cabaret debuted in San Francisco in 2001 and has gone on to tour the states, including Las Vegas (Sahara and Rio), plus seven years at England’s Glastonbury Festival, as well as Scotland’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

This show is designed for adults, but kids love it too. There is no nudity or profanity. Recommended for children 8+.

“This is, without a doubt, one of the most excellent and incredible live shows I have ever seen. Hands down. Don’t miss it!”  

“WOW!!!!! Amazingly fun! This show is PACKED with variety arts talent!”

“Highly recommend seeing this!!!!”

“The San Francisco show was great fun!”

”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!”

“Really fun time with a great clown and circus performer.”

“My husband and I saw Frank’s show this evening and had such a fun time. Modern day Vaudeville, I think is a great way to describe it. Magic, music and laughs. Good times!”

“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.”

“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!”

“It’s a truly “edge-of-your-seat” comedy- suspense-amazement type of show!”

“GO SEE IT. He is amazing.”
