THE VAUDEVILLIAN

Brendan J Stephens and Willow Walker are 1920’s blues singers in the flesh. Hitchhiking between raucous house shows, rowdy bars and busking everywhere in between, they have crafted a way of singing both their own material and songs near one hundred years old in a way entirely their own.

COUNT DEVULA’S THEATRE OF HORRORS

Improv Superstar Devlin Bishop will entertain us throughout the night with screenings of some of the sexiest and creepiest movies around…just Count Devula’s commentary is worth the price of admission

CELEBRITY COSTUME JUDGE JEFF MAHONEY (THE SPEC)

Jeff Mahoney is one of the Hamilton Spectator’s most beloved columnists. He’s witty, irreverant and just a down right great guy! What more can we say…the Staircase loves me some Jeff Mahoney!
