MC – Dr. Owl
Dr. Owl has been performing for many moons. First magic, then music, then balloon twisting, then stage acting, and later he became a mad science. Sometimes he is a jester, other times he’s playing a role on stage or doing walk around characters. He is the producer, director, & M.C. of a traveling variety show called Dr. Owl’s Medicine Show. His favorite thing to do is make balloon animals. However, anything that makes people smile, is fair game. Dr. Owl can be found at owljester.com

LEX the Lexicon Artist
LEX the Lexicon Artist is Taiwanese-American rapper and egomaniac Alex Sun Liu. Plagued with self-repression, neurotic ambition, and delusions of grandeur, Alex created LEX in 2016 to shield polite society from her most socially unacceptable attributes, by redirecting them onto the stage instead.
With a comically narcissistic persona and a domineering stage presence, LEX delivers surgically precise rapid-fire raps about things she likes, things she’s done, and things everyone else is too afraid to say. LEX is ugly and real, and speaks to the minds of misfits everywhere. A larger-than-life portrait and complete self-expression of one 5′4″ Asian nerd, LEX is the freshest new rapper you’ll hear – “not in spite of being a nerd, but because of it.”
