Saturday, October 5, 2019 8pm
Talent-stuffed and sanitarium-ready, the hysterically funny Dina Martina is barreling back to Martinis Above Fourth | Table + Stage with a NEW SHOW with NEW VIDEO!
Absolutely packed with ludicrous song, horrifying dance, overburdened costumes and sidesplitting video, Dina Martina’s shows are impossible to describe—other than that they’ve become synonymous with jaw-dropping pathos and mind-blowing comedy. Dina Martina has been hailed as “alarmingly funny”, “dazzling and mind-blowing” and “as graceful as a Coke machine moving about on a hand truck.” A Dina Martina show is, quite simply put, a smart and hilarious evening of entertainment that you will never forget.

Tragic singer, horrible dancer and surreal raconteur, the hysterically funny Dina Martina debuted at Seattle’s Center on Contemporary Art in 1989, instantly gleaning reviews that dubbed her “magically warped”, “hilariously unfortunate” and “utter genius”.
