The TROMAmerican Summer 2016 FESTIVAL OF FREE!!!

posted in News |


The first ever TROMAmerican Summer 2016 – FESTIVAL OF FREE!!!, a three month Thursday night Summer calendar event featuring rare Troma movie screenings as well as live performance art, including rock-n-roll music and go-go dancers, on a series of lineups curated by the Troma Team.

Lloyd Kaufman and Michael Herz have been redefining Summer Fun since their early sexy beach comedy, The First Turn On!


The three Thursday evening dates confirmed on the Calendar for the Festival are slated to be held at Brooklyn Venue and Screening room Lucky 13 Saloon, and each night the Troma Team will spin a soiree to Showcase Strange and Unusual Spectaculars from Tromaville alongside musicians of a shared spirit!

Opening night for the TROMAmerican Summer 2016 FESTIVAL OF FREE at Lucky 13 will be dedicated to the memorial for recently deceased, longtime beloved Troma actor, Joe Fleishaker, who died May 24th, 2016 at 62 years old. The actor was a key player in a number of landmark Troma productions including Citizen Toxie: The Toxic Avenger IV, Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead, and Terror Firmer. This first TROMAmerican Summer will be hosted by Lloyd Kaufman alongside his creation and recent webisode sensation, Sgt. Kabukiman, N.Y.P.D, roommate of Doug Sakmann.

Lloyd Kaufman and Sgt. Kabukiman, N.Y.P.D. in the flesh will host the June 23rd party at Lucky 13 Saloon


To honor the loss in Tromaville, the Troma Family has selected Terror Firmer (1999), Lloyd Kaufman’s avante-garde and surreal genre blending dark comedy that takes place on set of a fictional Troma film. Kaufman, who plays a blind director in the movie attempting to keep his film afloat despite real world violence that invades his set, loosely based Terror Firmer on his best-selling book, All I Needed to Know about Filmmaking I Learned from The Toxic Avenger. When a serial killer starts taking out the production team and actors on set, spilled guts and gags run riot. Mark Cummings of Film Topics described Terror Firmer as “Henry, Portrait of a Serial Killer’ meets ‘Living in Oblivion’ through the eyes of Frank Carpa.”

After the movie there will be a live musical numbers T.B.A. later in this week.
