This was originally posted to the Las Vegas EVIL DEAD THE MUSICAL site in 2015. You’ll be seeing a lot of these archival posts from my days with EVIL DEAD to make sure they don’t get lost in the shuffle of the interwebs. Plus it is a bit of fun to stroll down memory lane…
Many of our fans remember fondly their first time seeing the show. Usually alcohol was involved. Often there was some confusion as to what was going on. And for many fans there was one emcee that they remember.
That would be Sirc Michaels (aka Chris Palkow), the director and producer of the show as well as the original foul-mouthed emcee. He cut his teeth directing and producing THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW all over the country including 2 regional tours. He is loud, brash, naughty, and downright wicked.
Sirc (aka Chris Palkow) created the emcee role for our production here in Las Vegas, and hosted the show from its opening in October 2011 through mid-2014.
He has been on hiatus since then, enjoying some quiet time hunting down the undead behind the scenes and bringing the kickassery of EVIL DEAD to new fans in ways other than at the show.
But now Sirc (aka Chris Palkow) is back and he’s bringing his wicked brand of humor with him just in time for the Halloween season!
Starting with the Friday 10/9 performance, Sirc Michaels (aka Chris Palkow) will be returning as the emcee of EVIL DEAD.
We encourage all of our fans to come JOIN US in the month of October. If you haven’t seen him before, prepare for kickassery. If you have, you ain’t seen nothing yet!
Hey guys! Chris Palkow aka Sirc Michaels here. I wanted to reiterate that this is NOT my original story, but it IS something I give a crap about! I hope you find it informative and interesting! Leave your comments and share!
