Born out of a bitterness that can only come from years of children's theatre and insomnia, Booth Daniels and Patrick Frankfort decided to put their decade of friendship and bizarre conversations into a conglomerated duo act - part comedy, part song with just a touch of the off-kilter. With original songs and covers, they promise an evening of quirky entertainment, which is melodic, spontaneous, warped, but most of all, funny.   posted 02-18-08    HOTLINE MEMBER DISCOUNT
