Pop culture humorist and author Charles Phoenix brings his live comedy slide show to the Hollywood Theater for one performance only. The program is a benefit for the non-profit Historic Preservation League of Oregon and follows their Mid-Century Marvelous Home Tour held on Saturday, June 2nd.
Phoenix, who has appeared on Martha Stewart, Conan O’Brien, and National Public Radio, is famous for his BIG RETRO SLIDESHOW which is an affectionate send-up of mid-century America. Think classic and kitschy road-trips, tourist traps, theme parks, car culture, space age style, festive fashions, fun foods, theme parties and much more. Charles will also reveal his “Best of Portland” guide of local landmarks, legends and lore.
“Portland is one of my fave cities to explore,” says Charles. “Americana abounds here! I can’t wait to have a ‘Dutch Baby’ at the Original Pancake House then go skating at Oaks Park, the ‘World’s Biggest Roller Rink!’”
