NYC, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, September 23, 2020 / — Lori Hamilton will perform The Silly & Unnecessary Variety Show as part of the KeyBank Rochester Fringe Festival in two live online shows this Friday, September 25 and Saturday, September 26th. Tickets are on sale for online access for only $5.00 through the Rochester Fringe website box office. Hamilton’s segments will include Opera Product Placement, Lori’s Cats Tell Kid’s Jokes, Winning at Work During COVID, Tipsy Midwest Mom, Audience Questions, and Silly & Unnecessary Tomfoolery. Anything can happen during two live online shows at Rochester Fringe

One segment, an animated short, Potato Family, by Hamilton and animator Montana Hall, was just selected for the Dublin International Short Film and Music Festival.

The Chicago Reader, Atlanta-Journal Constitution, Seattle Weekly and Go-Go Denver have all hailed Lori Hamilton as a “brilliant up-and-coming comedian with artistic vision.” Sean Daniels, Artistic Director, Arizona Theater Company says, “you might be able to spell comedy without Lori Hamilton, but you really shouldn’t.”

Fresh off a run at the 2020 Edinburgh Fringe Festival Online, Hamilton said, “I’m so excited to be doing a live streaming show for the Rochester Fringe. It will be great to take audience questions!” Putting together a Variety Show during COVID-19 has been a “fun challenge” Hamilton says. She looks forward to using her improv skills while acting, singing and filming a show all by herself – with a lot of props – in the comfort of her New York apartment.

About the Show…
Since its debut in 2012, the KeyBank Rochester Fringe Festival has become one of the most successful fringe festivals in the U.S., as well as the largest multi-arts festival in New York State. The 2019 Fringe attracted more than 100,000 attendees to over 665 performances and events – of which 219 were free of charge – in 25+ downtown venues. Due to COVID-19, 2020’s 12-day festival will be all virtual. It will feature an open-access portion submitted by artists, as well as some safely enjoyed headline shows curated by the Fringe. The non-profit organization’s overarching mission is to provide a platform for artists to share their ideas and develop their skills, as well as to make arts readily accessible to audiences, while also stimulating downtown Rochester both culturally and economically.
