Come to HAPPY’S! Meet the bartender, Candy, three of her regular, hard-drinking customers, the lascivious bar owner and an assortment of other saloon denizens. Ponder the magic forces that keep a drunk on his bar stool! Honor acts of alcohol-induced courage! Celebrate the traditions of the bar that transform a bunch of lonely drunks into a loving family! And mostly join Candy in her efforts to keep her favorite regular from drinking himself to death.
With her remarkable physical performance skills, Jill brings to life 14 characters in this hilarious and touching send up of American Bar Culture.
“Tipped & Tipsy” performed to 5 sold out houses and won best of fringe at the 2013 San Francisco Fringe Festival. Robert Avila of the Bay Guardian says, “Without set or costume changes, Vice proves a protean physical performer, seamlessly inhabiting the oddball outcasts lined up before bartender Candy… With a love of the underdog and strong writing and acting at its core, Tipsy breezes by, leaving a superlative buzz.”
