Landon Bradbary Performer, bartender, dad How did you wind up in Key West? I fell in love with the island. I fell in love with the mentality. I first visited in 1998, and I never got it out of my head. I just kept dreaming about it and one day, my then-girlfriend and I decided to leave the city, move down here and make a new start. That was on December third of 2002. You have appeared in numerous shows on the island and are probably best known as everyone’s favorite abusive and profane but hilarious burlesque host, Frankie. What’s next? I love performing, but I am focusing more now on writing and producing with On the Rock Productions. Our goal is to continue the creation, development and professional production of new works by Key West writers. We currently have a recurring variety show called “On the Couch with Landon,” as well as other original productions coming up at the Key West Theater on Eaton Street this spring. When you’re not starring in a show, or writing one, or tending bar at the Porch, what do you like to do? I like to get on my bike, ride slow and just visit with the people on the island. I take a lot of pride in the fact that so many people know me on the island. It’s been an important part of my life. I’m raising my son here—I like riding around town with him because he brings a smile to everyone’s face. Just riding around the island and visiting with my friends—that is my perfect day in Key West. And maybe throw in a beer or two here and there as well. —Juliet Gray
