When alone in the basement of their mother’s Foccacceria, between broadcasts of Show Without End!, what does Pier Valentino do to fight the sadness of existence? They call on an inter-dimensional, inter-spectacular assortment of Imaginary Friends to sing fun songs about Death, Humiliation, The Nightmare of Adolescence, The Existential Dread of Adulthood, Oreos, Deeply Committed Isolation, Panic Attacks, Hot Italian Crushes, Imploding Retinas, Sisters That Were Absorbed in The Womb, Aliens, The Gilgamesh Epic, and more! And for the first time ever, Pier is welcoming the general public to this once clandestine soiree. Hooray! Pier isn't nervous at all! People are absolutely not terrifying and totally don't come with expectations that are impossible to meet and are awesome to share space with! Gentle freaks, humble geeks: take a funky hour to vibrate your marvelous (but temporary) vessel above this struggle-bus existence and go for a journey on the weird-side with Pier Valentino and The Imaginary Friend Cabaret!! The Imaginary Friend Cabaret is a rotating ensemble of extraordinary and delightful beings with varying degrees of connection to this plane of existence. Pier Valentino is the host and creator of Show Without End!, which broadcasts sometime between Midnight and 4am on Mondays (and occasional Thursdays) on various Bay Area and nation-wide public access stations--just after: 'Barry Weatherjam's Kazoo and Bagpipe Jamboree!"
