Trapeze: Gooferman Day on April 1, 2017 in San Francisco, CA : It's been called a lot of things; April Fool's Day, St. Stupid's Day, the First Day of Spring, the birthday of the infamous medieval Japanese Emperor Go-Saga. Yes, the list goes on and on and all of its timeless titles have been obsequiously bequeathed with passionate palaver and the noblest of triviality. But one curious promulgation stands alone. In 2006 the (then) mayor of San Francisco, Gavin Newsome, put the firmest of fealty on this most auspicious day by declaring April 1st International Gooferman Day. So it was written and so shall it be.
April 1st Trapeze Worldwide is mighty proud to welcome back to the stage THEE ONE, THEE ONLY.. GOOFERMAN!!!
This will be a bombastic no-holds barred banquet of beatitude with the original bohemian kings of klown-fi bounciness! Dress up in your finest and filthiest of formal folly wear and join us for a rare and celebratory episode of stylish absurdity!
