Description

In 2016, SAG Award-winning, middle-aged scene-stealer Tom Lenk (Buffy, Tilda Swinton Answers..., Transparent, HBO's Room 104) accidentally achieved what millennials and wannabe social media "influencers" desperately crave: Instagram superstardom. Using 'household junk and sly humor' (New York Times), his 'Lenk Lewk for Less' red carpet parody photos and videos have garnered 500k followers, hundreds of millions of views, and reposts from your fave celebs (Kylie Minogue?!). Now, Lenk combines comedy, trash-fash, hot glue guns and all things half-assed in this hilarious hour of craftertainment. 'Lenk is brilliant' (Guardian).

Tom Lenk is an Instagram sensation perhaps best known for his 'Lenk Lewk For Less' posts where he creates replica red carpet outfits from whatever he has lying around the house. It's an unusual format for a fringe show as its a mix of stand-up, onstage crafting and a slideshow...
