Minnesota Fringe Festival 2020: "TV Tunes with Leslie Vincent"

Location: Nightly Fringe (Aug. 3)

Length: 35 minutes

Title: TV Tunes with Leslie Vincent

By: Leslie Vincent

Summary: A very special episode of Leslie's weekly ukulele concert in which she sings songs from TV shows, with commentary, jokes, and trivia from Josh Carson.

Highlights: This is just a fun, easy-going show, especially if you're a TV addict like me (and really, what else is there to do right now other than watch copious amounts of old TV shows?!). Josh and Leslie have a cute older brother/little sister kind of rapport, as he shares odd and interesting bits of info about the shows (The Golden Girls launched the career of Quentin Tarantino? who knew!). Leslie's renditions of favorite theme songs from shows like Happy Days, Friends, Cheers, and the Sopranos are, like always, unique and lovely. And the weird but oddly moving "Good Bye, Lil' Sebastian" from Parks and Rec was a perfect ending to the show. While she might not be singing TV tunes, you can see Leslie live and in person at Crooners MainStage Tent next Monday, as she celebrates the release of her new jazz alum These Foolish Things, available on Bandcamp.
