In 2006 I was part of a performance art/theater group that performed once a month at different art galleries around the valley called “Uncle Sku’s Clubhouse” it was an after school kids program type-set up for “the young at heart and children of all ages 18+ only” I played a man-child named “Casper” who wore a shirt too small, pants too big and a helmet. The host was “Uncle Sku” who was a creepy man in a suit that lived in a shed and hung out with kids (also an implied child molester). The other key characters are “Mr. Jangles” (the chain smoking puppet) and “The Maestro” (a blind and deaf accordion player). Every month the show would also include local weirdos from all different parts of the Arizona art, music, poetry and performance scene. Most notably The Baby Man, Dr. Reverend Steven Strange, MC Merv, Jason Polland, Robin Vinning…etc I was only on the show for 8 months and then later returned for a reunion we did for a benefit show in 2009. The show lasted for almost 2 years though and became better known for the YouTube videos rather than the live stage performances.
Anyway, we made about 100 or so of these neat little 10-page coloring books and sold out of them pretty quickly. But thankfully The Trunk Space found 5 of them sitting in a un-marked box full of zines in a shed in their backyard and gave them to me to sell. If you want to have a bizarre piece of Phoenix art history I suggest snatching one of these up.
