During our VIP Portion, we’ll feature a special comedy set by friend of the Fringe, Danny Jolles! You might know him from Crazy Ex Girlfriend, Ramy, and Colbert. His first special made the best of 2021 list of the NY Times and his second is being filmed right now for Netflix!

Our VIP Portion will also feature typewriter poetry by Nayeli Knudsen of Melrose Poetry Bureau. This unique poetry experience gives people an opportunity to receive a custom poem on the spot. How it works 1. Choose a topic 2. Talk with your poet. 3. Get a custom poem written just for you or a loved one! Come to our VIP portion to guarantee a spot, she won’t be there all night.

Last, but certainly not least, our favorite Fringe DJ Jessenia Moreira is back with two sets of incredible tunes throughout the night. Dance the night away <3
