Situation Normal until the arrival of Michael Menes and Leland Faulkner, and then the world gets turned on its ear. BE PREPARED TO BE ENTERTAINED! Outrageous sketch comedy, slapstick, hilarious characters, awesome juggling, crazy gags, and mind-boggling magic. 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, SNAFU! is a collection of innovative comedy conceived by one of the most dynamic and creative duets in the business.

Guaranteed to tickle audiences of all ages and nationalities, SNAFU! crosses cultural boundaries and touches the universal funny bone. What can-go-wrong-WILL! as these “Masters of the Ridiculous” explore a collection of comedic props, physical gags, and imaginative illusions.

Suitable for all ages, the performance also includes masterful hand shadows, superb juggling acts, and memorable audience participation.



We are PortFringe! We are a by-lottery, non-juried fringe theater festival. We support new, edgy, and experimental performance in our city of Portland. We celebrate the imaginative and the weird. We seek to eliminate financial and logistical barriers so that artists can focus on the creation of their work, and receive all the revenue from their ticket sales. We celebrate and contribute to Maine’s vibrant performance art community. We do this out of love and passion – for theater, for creativity, for cardboard props, and packed houses. Plus, it’s super fun.
