Full press release
Peter Michael Marino's newest creation is here. Meet Lance (like Madonna is just Madonna, Lance is just Lance)... a delusional cruise ship entertainer, celebrity stalker and pathological musical theatre fanatic.
After a 15-year hiatus from the cabaret world, Peter Michael Marino's alter ego character Lance makes his Edinburgh Fringe debut with his very own variety chat show, Late with Lance!
He's invited Liza Minnelli, Hugh Jackman and Miami Sound Machine as celebrity guests - and that's surely bound to happen. This solo show/chat show spoof with a musical theatre twist features very silly sketches and witty rapport, original song parodies, The Sound of Music performed in 5-minutes, an homage to the film Fame, and many more ridiculous surprises.
Lance got his first taste of fame the moment he was born on the ice in front of hundreds of confused families during an ice rink show in Milwaukee. Following several failed auditions for NYC's High School of Performing Arts (Fame) and countless rejections from dozens of Off-Off-Off-Broadway shows, Lance was cast as the head of Big Bird in Sesame Street Live - On Ice!
After Lance was let go for "not giving good head", he began stage managing and understudying for the Broadway musical-themed ice shows on his two gay dads' cruise ship, the S.S. Spectacular. Since he's never been on a chat show, nor will be ever be, he's hosting his own - Late with Lance!
