Harkening back to a bygone era of dust bowl circuses and traveling sideshows, Carnivalesque stars international cabaret legend Armitage Shanks, The Carny Preacher; “Baltimore’s Sicilian Queen” Maria Bella; sideshow phenom “Pain Proof Girl” Mab Just Mab, The Original Sideshow Geek from DC Swami YoMahmi,; vaudeville contortionist from NYC Ekaterina; sword swallower and sideshow entertainer from NYC Heather Holliday; the burlesque delights of Gilded Lily’s Sophia Sunday, Nona Narcisse & Mourna Handful, as well as Valeria Voxx, Cherie Sweetbottom, and a bevy of buxom beauties and handsome hunks plying their trade at the Carnivalesque Cooch Tent & along Mab’s Midway. Far more than your run-of-the-mill burlesque or nightclub event, The Carnivalesque Roadshow offers an immersive experience into the enticing world of acrobats, freaks, roustabouts, barkers, dandies and women of questionable virtue. Try your hand at games of skill on the Midway! Be shocked & amazed by oddities inside our “Ten-In-One”! Witness the libidinous temptations of the dance of forbidden vice! Hear dark tales of extraordinary madness whispered into the ears of fallen maidens! Thrill to lithe sensuality of sideshow artistry and athletic aplomb! Enjoy the twist & turns of flexible comedic contortion! Step Right Up! All who enter will be transformed!
