Celebrate Star Wars Day with Paul Anthony’s Talent Time! It’s a variety show that takes place in Jabba the Hutt’s Palace with…
✔ DARTH VADER PERFORMS STAND UP COMEDY!
What if Vader was a stand up comedian? What sorts of observations would he riff on? Friend and former comedian Dustin Lad, dusts off his classic Star Wars themed bit for your enjoyment!

They will be performing their full show “The Empire Strips Back” the following evening at the Rio Theatre. We offer you a small preview of that, only without the stripping. Consider this an extra long tease.
