First Show Way Back When…

We’ve been asked when we first started performing Orange Tuxedo and our memories are foggy, so we’d answer something like, “Oh, four or five years ago?” But thanks to Facebook, now we know! This picture popped up in my feed yesterday from six years ago. It was our first Orange Tux! January 9th, 2012 in The Loft at iO West. Thanks to Tilt Tyree, Drew Coolidge, Ryan Locante, Maria Blasucci, and Amanda Lund for asking us to do their show all those years ago in The Loft at iO. When they asked for our name we looked at our orange tabby and black and white cat and “Orange Tuxedo” was born!

Happy Anniversary, Orange Tuxedo!

Orange Tuxedo in Portland in August!

Orange Tuxedo is back performing at (a favorite!) – the Stumptown Improv Fest this August. Final details will be available soon. In the meantime, check out The Portland Mercury article for a blurb on the fest HERE.

“From the above list, we’re most excited about seeing LA’s Dasariski (considered to be one of the best improv groups in the nation), Vancouver, BC’s Hip.Bang (an award-winning duo that’s whip-smart, fast on their feet, and absurd as all get out), and the return of the beloved Orange Tuxedo (Craig and Carla Cackowski) and Summerland who both killed it at last year’s fest.”

JoCo Cruise 2017

Orange Tuxedo has been invited to perform by friends Paul and Storm on the 2017 JoCo Cruise. We will be doing some improv shows with our pals from Thrilling Adventure Hour – Janet Varney, Mark Gagliardi, Hal Lublin, and more!
