College students generally juggle a lot. Term papers, part-time jobs, bong hits, parental expectations, binge drinking, sexy time in the library and more. The artist currently known as Lo-Lo Flamingo one upped most though, teaching herself to juggle balls as a way to relieve stress. Three balls became four, four became five, you get the picture. Eight years later, Lo-Lo is a full-time traveling performer who has added unicycling, burlesque and even fire to her impressive repertoire. On the first Wednesday of every month, she hosts an almost one-woman show called Girl Next Dork at one of Denver’s best kept secrets, Lannie’s Clocktower Cabaret (16th & Arapahoe). Girl Next Dork takes you deep inside Lo-Lo’s 1950s bedroom, where sleazy (imaginary?) friend Juan Dorito is a frequent guest. Shameless self-promo alert: you might recognize another guest in the clip below. It ain’t so-so.
