"Using more props than an entire troupe of improv artists, more costume/hair/makeup changes than a sketch comedy group, and more energy than a kindergarten class that has just had a king-size Snickers and a Mountain Dew, Ms. Carrara-Rudolph presents her off-the-wall character creations, a million and one laughs including pratfalls, dropped draws, audience participation, toiletries, innuendo, and anything else that she can get her hands on or her brain wrapped around."
- Stephen Mosher, Broadway World
BIZARRE BRUNCH was created so Leslie could share all-new stories, songs and ideas with a different theme every show. Each show is completely different with only the common factor being that they are all bizarre indeed. With co-writer Jamie Donmoyer, Leslie not only explores new characters but stretches the art of storytelling adventure and audience participation further than ever.
Packed with special guests and Leslie's original songs, BIZARRE BRUNCH shows have played to sold-out audiences, with a waiting list full of people wanting to escape reality and enter a place where weird whimsy is served up in bountiful portions. The shows feature Michael Hicks on Piano and Leslie's husband Paul Rudolph on percussion.
Every performance raises money for a different charity through sales of Leslie's original artwork created specifically for each show, and by selling BIZARRE BRUNCH coffee mugs with original artwork by cartoonist Jay Fosgitt.
