Politics Are A Drag

Ace of Base had Buddha, Joker, Linn, and Jenny; the Kinsey Sicks have Winnie, Rachel, Trixie, and Trampolina. All but Jenny are stage names, only in the case of the Kinsey Sicks, the performers are actually men -- Irwin, Ben, Jeff, and Spencer -- dressed as ladies. Trademarked as "America's favorite Dragapella Beautyshop Quartet," the Kinsey Sicks formed in 1993 at -- where else? -- a Bette Midler concert and have become a comedic staple at theaters, nightclubs, and comedy clubs ever since. Singing a cappella and writing their own song parodies and sketches, the Kinsey Sicks are like Weird Al Yankovic if Weird Al ever decided to be controversial. The Sicks' current show is titled Electile Dysfunction, an election-year bout of political satire that will take special aim at Republicans and the social issues they love to exploit. Songs include "Vote for Me (I Wasn't Born in Kenya)," "Satan Baby," and "Love Child: Politician Edition." Electile Dysfunction comes to the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, located at 201 SW Fifth Ave. in Fort Lauderdale, at 8 p.m. Saturday. Tickets cost $35. Call 954-462-0222, or visit browardcenter.org.
Sat., Aug. 25, 8 p.m., 2012
