eet Hank and Larry—two performance artists on the seedy streets of San Francisco where art freaks and junkies can't wait to see what hilarious acts they'll cook up next with chainsaws, roller skates, and lard. Though art critics delight in ravaging their work, the pair are sure that fame and fortune are just around the corner—provided Larry can keep Hank's hysteria, boozing, fear of heights, and crying from spiraling out of control. But when poverty forces the duo to take computer jobs working for celebrity billionaire Bill Kunstler, Bill's hundred-hour workweeks, mind-numbing corporate propaganda, and soggy breakroom burritos turn the performers into nervous wrecks.
Hungry for revenge with nothing to lose and their dreams of glory fading, Hank and Larry plot their greatest performance ever: to kidnap their billionaire boss—and brainwash him into becoming the zaniest performance artist the city's ever seen.
Packed with gonzo performances torn straight from the author's life as an underground performer, Two Performance Artists is a madcap caper comedy about art, fame, redemption...and two best friends determined to tackle the American Dream with fish guts, duct tape, and a gummy AK-47.
