Las Vegas’ greatest crusader for sock-puppet social justice, Penny Pibbets, is putting on her own show at the Art Square Playhouse Theatre. Almost. The Absinthe star netted more than $20,000 on Kickstarter for the Penny Pibbets Show, a live yakker that will officially debut December 21. (Big-ticket donors at $5,000 would land a coffee-and-doughnut date with Pibbets.) She’s still shy of her stretch goal of $23,000 at presstime—where she’d ride into the show on a rhinestone-encrusted rainbow unicorn. Directing is Shannan Calcutt of Zumanity. The Gazillionaire already has his own Web series, and Pibbets is involved with the band Koocheekoo. This is the next logical step in our entire local economy being based on Absinthe side projects.
