Famous Monsters Variety Show and VIP Dinner

Spend your Saturday with Famous Monsters and be treated to live music, comedy, and more!


Live painting by ambidextrous artist Rob Prior!

Rob Prior has created unique artwork for Famous Monsters, Disney/Lucasfilm, Marvel, and Wizards of the Coast, but it is his live show that is truly extraordinary. He is able to paint with both hands at the same time, covering an entire canvas and creating a work of art in less than an hour! You won’t be able to look away as he slips into a musical trance and fully-rendered paintings come to life before your eyes.



Improv comedy routine by Dean Haglund!

Dean Haglund is most well known for playing Langly of the Lone Gunmen on the long-running series THE X-FILES, but Haglund is a man of many talents, and first broke into in entertainment as an improv comedian. He performs a one-man “X-Files” routine and regularly headlines comedy clubs. Haglund will be performing a set especially for VIP Dinner attendees. X-FILES fans can’t afford to miss this!



Live guitar by Alex Ruiz!

Musician Alex Ruiz has worked with Robert Rodriguez on many of his film and television projects, including FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: THE SERIES and SIN CITY. They play together in a band called Chingon as well as working together on film soundtracks. Ruiz is also adept at traditional flamenco guitar, and will be accompanying your meal with a twenty minute set. The FM Variety Show gives you an exclusive opportunity to see a reknowned musician in a unique and intimate setting.
