Loco Toko Picture Show
The Loco Toko Picture Show mixes cabaret, film and food together! The first edition of the Loco Toko Picture Show takes place on 22 and 23 June! The meeting is paramount in this lively show.
But what exactly does that mean? Comedians deliver their hilarious and sarcastic commentary on film classics. Their comments give the films a comic twist and an unexpected turn. Because of the improvisational skills of the comedians and the interaction with the audience, the show will be different every night. It’s gonna be an amazing mash-up! In short: cabaret meets film, film meets cabaret and the audience meets the Loco Toko Picture Show!
Cabaret, Film and Food The combination of cabaret, film and food is already a big hit in America, but in The Netherlands the concept is still unknown to the public. This will change with the Loco Toko Picture Show. During the first show, comedians Tim Ward (USA) and Fabian Franciscus (The Netherlands) will go all the way with the well known classic Back To The Future 1. The audience will be welcomed with a cocktail and will be surprised with exclusive delicasies during the intermission. A total package for a night out. Where theater and cinema stop, the Loco Toko Picture Show just gets started.
Background of our comedians Tim Ward was born in California. He graduated at The American Academy of Dramatic Arts, one of America’s oldest acting schools. He played in more than 60 productions, like Amadeus, The Zoo Story and The Importance Of Being Earnest. From 1994 till 1996 he played in the German hit Pomp Duck And Circumstances. In 2000 he came to The Netherlands to play in the movie Billy’s Bad. Today Tim lives in Amsterdam and regularly plays as the MC of Act at the well known Comedy Café in Amsterdam during weekend shows.
Fabian Francis masters the ability to create comedy out of his inimitable and incomprehensible chaos that lays within him. Unfocused and poorly skilled in most things, but one of the most talented comedians of our time. In 2010 he won the Comedy Slam, in 2011 he won the Griffin Zuidplein Cabaret Festival, after which he joined the “finalists tour” through The Netherlands and Belgium. Fabian also plays regularly in the Netherlands.
