In the spirit of the great comedy teams of the past, two of Maine’s premiere international variety performers are bringing their contemporary comedy show to the Southside Cultural Center in Providence, Rhode Island on July 26 at 8 PM and July 27 at 9 PM.

Maine residents Michael Menes and Leland Faulkner both have made their livelihoods as professional variety entertainers and both are well established solo artists. But in their new two-man show, SNAFU!, they conspire together to bring to life Murphy’s Law. What can-go-wrong- will-go-wrong as these “Masters of the Ridiculous” explore a collection of comedic props, physical gags, and imaginative illusions. The show is in the tradition of the classic American comedy teams like Bud Abbott and Lou Costello, Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, and Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin. Suitable for all ages, the performance also includes hand shadows, juggling acts, magic illusions and audience participation.

SNAFU! has appeared at the Shanghai International Comedy Festival, Seattle’s Moisture Festival, and recently at the South Point Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. For more on SNAFU!, visit

The shows are presented by The Wilbury Theatre Group as part of FRINGEPVD (The Providence Fringe Festival).
