Since 1981, the Troupers have brought laughs to thousands of residents and visitors of Southern California with their unique and hilarious blend of high-camp comedy skits. They’ve performed weekly engagements at well known Los Angeles clubs including Studio One, the Apache, Oil Can Harry’s and Rage. The Troupers also performed engagements at clubs and events in Santa Barbara, Long Beach, Laguna Beach, Palm Springs and San Diego.
The popularity of the Troupers show and great audience response has gained them the notoriety as “Southern California’s funniest high-camp comedy ensemble.”
Their active involvement in the Gay community has been very visible through their performances on the Main Stage for nine (9) Los Angeles Gay Pride festivals, Palm Springs Pride, and participation in numerous fund-raisers for AIDS support, research organizations and programs; Guide Dogs for the Blind; Orphan Pet Oasis of the Desert; and many others. Through fund raising events and audience support, the Troupers have donated food and durable goods, and raised thousands of dollars almost every year for important community organizations.
In 1997, The Troupers changed their calendar from weekly shows in Los Angeles to monthly performances and other special event engagements in Palm Springs, and play to packed houses at every show.
From their vast collection of skits, the Troupers create a different show each month. Some of their audience favorites include tributes and spoofs of famous TV shows; musical groups from the 50’s to today; movies and Broadway shows; various camp take-offs of well known actors, singers and performers; and numerous original comedy sketches. Other skits lampoon veteran icons of the Gay community, and new creations are added to shows on a regular basis to satirize current local and world events.
The Troupers perform their hilarious high-camp comedy show at 6pm every first Saturday of the month at Hunters Nightclub inPalm Springs, CA. The only exception to their schedule is that in November, their show is on the second Saturday.
