6201 Santa Monica Boulevard

“You’ll howl with delight as this happy faced duo launches into absurd medleys… a delightfully god-awful lounge act riotously over the top.”
- LA Weekly
Martini & Olive are a tragically unhip 70s comedy lounge duo that perform a hilariously cheesy 60-minute variety show. 
• Gloriously silly Dance Numbers
• Wildly wrong Costumes
• Funny medleys of 70’s hits
• Original Songs
Martini & Olive have made countless audiences howl with delight by being very very good at being being very very bad.
“The show…is not just awful – it’s awfully entertaining.”
Rohan Preston, Minneapolis Star Tribune

You really must experience M&O’s whistle stop medleys of the 70s pop songs, played out by two characters in costumes that should be considered crimes against humanity and backed up by a trio of middle aged tap dancers whose credo is “over medicated and ready to rock.”

The act needs to be seen to be believed: 
• High-energy medleys, from “Aqualung” to “Shake Yer Booty”
• Rousing renditions of 70’s classics
• A not-to-be-missed, painfully choreographed and completely loony version of “Convoy” 
• An interpretive dance to “MacArthur Park” that’s simply to die for. There is a cake in it, in fact.
The crew of M&O also get into the act: The Swizzle Stick Dancers (the creme de la creme of Adult Dance Class), their guitar-strumming manager Vince (Peter Staloch) and even M&O’s security guards.
Come see what the St. Paul Pioneer Press called “such deliciously, marvelously, intentionally appalling stuff that you’ll find yourself alternately holding your head in your hands and wiping tears of laughter out of your eyes.”
