Uncle Tad Baker's Loon Show Presents 'The Championship of Disgust!'

San Francisco: N.p., 1990. Vintage Tad Baker's Loon Show Presents 'The Championship of Disgust!' poster, from the 1990 performance at San Francisco's Ye Rose and Thistle, 9:31 pm, Friday, April 27, 1990.

A cross between sketch comedy and performance art, Uncle Tad Baker's Loon Show was an improvised and outrageous comedy show intent on offending and irritating an audience armed with tomatoes. As advertised on the poster on offer here, "The only show in the world where the audience is the judge .. and it's with tomatoes!" Baker brought his subversive brand of deviant and anarchistic improvisation and audience retaliation to the San Francisco area throughout the 1980s and 1990s. A dvd of one of Baker's performances was released as "Uncle Tad Baker's Loon Show: The Movie: Trial By Tomato!" in 2011.

San Francisco's Ye Rose and Thistle was a popular bar and performance venue located at 1634 California Street in the 1980s and 1990s.

11 x 17 inches. Near Fine, with a few small pinholes at the corners.
