Frank Olivier’s Twisted Cabaret

The Hungarian knife-thrower Frankonovitchski hurls daggers at his wife Natasha, missing every time; the French mime Francel Franceau has been pulling invisible ropes for more than 25 years; and the Great Frankini can crush his head and plump it back again. The kicker? These performers all inhabit the same body. Aided by his MC, the hunchbacked Flinch, Frank Olivier changes costumes and genders, performing 16 acts, each with its own character who has its own over-the-top story, unique talents, and deeply buried reason why it’s uncomfortable around hippos. Sometimes Olivier even manages to multiply himself—donning a blond wig and high-kicking between two shoddy puppets to become the Frankettes.

When he was just 11 years old, watching a fireman juggle in his elementary classroom, the desire to perform struck Frank Olivier hard. So hard, in fact, that he began piecing together his one-man show right then, and it’s obvious in every scene—not just in the effortless ease with which he shows off his tricks but also in the anarchic, delightfully crude energy that fuels the show. Throughout, a clownish, bumbling clumsiness lends his act an unpredictable chaos, with Olivier telling the San Francisco Chronicle “it makes it funnier, things go better when everything is falling apart.”
