" THINK JANE FONDA ON ACID AND YOU GET THE PICTURE "
Woody is a cofounder of acclaimed interarts gang The Libertinis with longtime art partners Tootsie Spangles and Hattie HellKat. As three actors trained as strippers trained as clowns, they've dealt many a low blow to high art - from tender three-handers like Oral Tradition to award-losing spectacles like Nite Skool at Annex Theatre and Uncle Seagull at the Seattle Fringe Festival.
On the vaudeville circuit, Woody bamboozles burlesque audiences alongside trailblazers like drag superstars Kitten N' Lou, Genius Award-winning dance artist Cherdonna Shinatra, and the historic Atomic Bombshells. Each year, Woody rocks in annual gay art institutions like Jingle All The Gay, CAMPTACULAR, and J'ADORE.
Woody's solo work tests the limits of theatrical space - from multilayered tales about conversion therapy on the Jersey Shore to the durational labor of making a grilled cheese in real time. His Schlong Song boasted several sold-out runs stateside before headlining the International Dublin Gay Theatre Festival (2019) and the Come Inside Festival (2019). Other titles include Maniac, Liquid Hot, PUT YOUR HANDS TOGETHER, and Who Cares!
In his spare time, he's sneaking up on stand-up through the backdoor, mixing a tight writing style with storytelling and slapstick. Sexy stuff is not merely Woody's shtick - it's a carefully chosen medium for exploring power, position, and liberation. Your boy is (shockingly) a Grand Slam Champion of The Moth, favorite of Bawdy Storytelling, darling of The Mystery Box Show (Portland), and has opened for Matteo Lane and Patti Harrison.
