For our last category in the Performers theme, we come at last to Steampunk.

There are a good number of steamy performers ​out there, but a lot of them seem to have come and gone without staying the course.  By contrast, this troupe has been together since 2008 and is still going strong.

Let's take a look at Steam Powered Giraffe​

What Is It:

So what exactly is Steam Powered Giraffe (let's call it SPG from now on)?  

According to their web page, ​SPG is a multimedia show that includes comedic sketches, improvisation, original music, visuals, billowing steam effects, and robot pantomime. 

Show Me:

Wow, sounds like a lot, right?  I think a video is needed here.​  Take a look at the first few minutes of this live show to get a taste (Note -  this entire video is an hour and 45 minutes long - it's a complete show).

There are three main characters in the show.  Currently, they are Hatchworth, The Spine and Rabbit (aka Bunny).​

This group does not do anything by halves.  They have an elaborate background story, going all the way back to 1896, as well as a comic series and more.

The comics seem to be all different without an ongoing story (at least as far as I can tell from my admittedly brief perusal).  Some are brightly colored and some dark and spooky.  Some are quirky and surreal.

So, there's a lot going on with these guys.  And, oh yeah!  Let's not forget the music (which I love).  Some songs are fun and fast, others sweet and poignant.

Sum Up:

I am definitely putting a live Steam Powered Giraffe show on my must-see list.  But or now, I'm off to go watch more SPG videos....  What about you?
