The Baby Show: Punk Grandpa and Uncle Pretty

Comedy · glitter candy · Ages 17+ · United States of America

“Punk Grandpa” is a modern-day “Auntie Mame,” with genders reversed.  It’s all about being different, not worrying about what others think and the value of the grandparent/grandchild relationship.  The show is portrayed through storytelling, music, dance, a little bit of puppetry and vintage family movies and photos.  It also touches on the topic of Alzheimer’s (as Laura’s grandpa passed away due to Alzheimer’s and has been used as a fundraiser for The Alzheimer’s Association) and Big Band/Jazz music.  It’ll put hair on your chest.


“Uncle Pretty” is the world premiere of Jake Scruggs’ one man show about acquiring the titular moniker from his adorable nieces. It continues the story of “Punk Grandpa” from the point of view of the minor character who marries the protagonist. He’s also a weirdo, has weird friends and some hilariously heartbreaking ‘adventures.’
