A Live Comedy Slide Show Performance Celebrating the Capitol City like it's a Big Theme Park!

Prepare for your local pride to SWELLL when Ambassador of Americana, Charles Phoenix, sweeps us away on a madcap adventure as he uncovers the stories and glories of Sacramento's classic and kitschy landmarks and lore.

With his gracious sense of humor, unbridled enthusiasm, and keen expertise,  Charles lavishes the city's most colorful "attractions" with the respect they SO deserve; revealing the unique style, backstories, and pop-cultural significance of Pancake Circus, Jim Denny's, Iceland Skating Rink, Gunther's Ice Cream, Vic's Ice Cream, Sam's Hofbrau, County Club Lanes, Fairytale Town, Tower Theatre, Crest Theatre, and Old Town.  

Experience a whole new appreciation for these and many other undiscovered and underrated local treasures including one-of a kind vintage neon signs, spectacular Art Deco, Googie, mid-century modern architecture, and old-school mom and pop businesses as you're surrounded by dozens of spectacular world-class collector cars in the California Auto Museum.
