Abe Goldfarb is known to burlesque circles as a talented host, Bastard Keith, regularly seen at New York City’s Slipper Room and festivals all over town; however, he is also an accomplished voice over actor (Pokemon! The Jungle Book! Strangeland!), film director (The Horror at Gallery Kay), and stage performer (Broadway’s Beetlejuice, Off-Broadway’s Bunnicula and Threepenny Opera!)  He’s got so much going on, somehow he found an hour and a half to talk about all this and more with Viktor Devonne, who got over his stagecrush just long enough to hear about his exploits!
