Charlotte Squawks is an annual stage show poking fun at politics, pop culture and sports through satire and musical parodies. Produced by the Blumenthal and featuring Mike Collins of WFAE’s Charlotte Talks, the show runs every June in the Booth Theater and just finished its 10th season.
We had co-producer and sole writer Brian Kahn share some of his parody lyrics, including a few of last year’s hits and some early contenders for next year’s show. Brian, a litigation partner at McGuireWoods LLP, also agreed to pick up his cartooning pen after a 20-year hiatus to illustrate his songs. From the blizzards of last winter and the indictment of Patrick Cannon, to the return of the Hornets and Heath Morrison’s departure, Brian has it covered.
If you enjoy what you see, follow Charlotte Squawks on Facebook and Twitter (@CltSquawks) and check out next year’s show in June.
