Follies, the sketch and physical comedy showcase, opens a new season at The Funhouse Lounge, 2432 SE 11th Ave.

Created and hosted by Italian performer Stefano Iaboni, the showcase says ciao to traditional stand-up and improv and highlights the artistic, hilarious world of physical comedy.

Iaboni was raised in Rome, Italy and spent ten years in Barcelona working in theatre companies, movies and commercials, participating in festivals around the world and starting his own sketch comedy cabaret. Saying he’s been influenced by Andy Kaufman and Monty Python, that makes sense and every first Sunday of the month (OCT 8) at 8 pm is a new and quite unpredictable presentation.

$10 advance, $12 at the door available at tinyurl.com/ycuw2ybj
