i will be performing at the coney island circus sideshow, in nyc, every friday-sunday in august! that’s August 5, 6, 7, 12, 13, 14, 19, 20, 21, 26, 27, & 28th! first show starts at 1p and runs continuous throughout the day with the last tickets being sold at 7p! $10 for adults and only $5 for kids. it’s a completely family friendly show, which i know i don’t do all that often.

you will see me there doing a mix of music (both my electric one-manned-band setup as well as ukulele songs), my take on the natural born freak sideshow classic “ask me anything”, maybe i’ll pick my nose with my tongue, maybe i’ll even ribbon dance here and there.. who knows?!

more info from the coney island website:

Sideshows by the Seashore is the last permanently housed not for profit venue in the USA where you can experience the thrill of a traditional ten-in-one circus sideshow. They’re here, they’re real and they’re alive! Freaks, wonders and human curiosities!

We perform continuous admission and we are conveniently located at the world famous Coney Island amusement park. Think about it folks, the ten-in-one circus sideshow is another Coney Island gift to culture along with other Brooklyn beach inventions like the hot dog and the roller coaster. Established by Coney Island, USA in 1985, where else would you find the world’s first professional non-profit theatre dedicated to keeping alive the American sideshow?

Current Cast:
Betty Bloomerz, Ray Valenz, Princess Pat, Zoe Ziegfeld, Nola Star, Justin Weber, Dr. Claw, Mr. Strange (Outside Talker).

Special Summer Guest Performers:
