Apocalypstick The Weirder Side Of Sundance: The Breakfast Show Almie Rose

I don’t really do “cool” things. So many creative people have so many projects that they’re working on that they pour their time and souls into and I’m saying, “Hey you guys, I wrote a top 10 list about best outfits in Disney movies!!! On an internet!” (I did, here it is.) So when I hear about people being brave and throwing themselves into passion projects and doing whatever it takes, I’m interested. (I’m totally proud of that list though.)

There’s a lot of things that come to mind when you think of the hallowed Sundance Film Festival, but “Pee Wee’s Playhouse On Acid” is probably not one of them. Yet that’s how LA Weekly described “The Breakfast Show with Adam-O,” a live show for both children and adults.

And for the first time ever, they’re doing a live show at Sundance. In a Yoga Studio.

Oh, and they encourage you to wear knitted beards and/or mustaches, and there will be a prize for best knitted facial hair.

I asked them if they could send me an image of these knitted beards. They sent me this photo with beards photoshopped on their faces. Close enough.

And there’s a character who is a sort of David Lynch impersonator. More like an homage to David Lynch: David Lunch, World Famous Storyteller, arch nemesis of Adam-O.

I totally think of David Lynch whenever I think about children's entertainment. PABST BLUE RIBBON FOR EVERYONE! L to R: April Hava Shenkman, Chris Dotson, Adam Shenkman.

And then there’s a puppet rock band, made by Nicole Daddona, a one woman Jim Henson powerhouse.

Hipsters: felt edition.

“This is gonna be really HIPSTER KIDS show! OF ALL TIME!”, shouts Adam-O, similar to the way the African chant begins “The Circle of Life” in “The Lion King.” He’s being tongue-in-cheek. I think. I’m pretty sure. I have no idea. He’s riding a horse.

“The Breakfast Show” is one of the weirder shows in LA, and that’s really saying something. There’s stuff that goes on around here that sounds like one of Stefon’s clubs. The show has a cult following that includes actor Bob Odenkirk (of “Breaking Bad” and “Mr. Show”) and Tenacious D, both who have made guest appearances. Here’s an appearance from one of their favorite guests, Bob Odenkirk, as  “The Old Man From The Future.”

Adam Shenkman, aka Adam-O, is the man in the orange blazer behind the show. And also in front of it. He's like, right there.

So basically, “The Breakfast Show” is a show for kids for adults or maybe it’s for adults for kids. Whatever it is, there’s lots of colors and things to look at and you’ll probably leave feeling just so young and so free and so breezy.
