The Members of Vicious Vaudeville:
Jared is an escape artist, sideshow performer and contortionist. His act is comprised of classic sideshow and contortion routines treated with his own twisted spin and unique presentation. With an arsenal of restraints, pointy things, and lollypops (?) he will make you want to close your eyes and watch closer all at the same time!
The Human Floor:
Pete, aka "The Human Floor", is one of the strangest and most amazing performers you will ever see. In addition to acts as a strongman and pain-resister, he will present to you the ultimate routine of audience participation. He will invite as many willing audience members as possible to stand upon his unprotected body. This act is one of the most incredible and unforgettable things you will ever see; one that has placed him upon stages around the world. He has also been featured on Tyra Banks' Talk show, on HBO with Katie Morgan's Talk show; He has performed for Opie and Anthony's Virus Tour. Above all he currently holds the world record for having the most people stand on him, totalling over two-thousand pounds!
Machete is a Boston based burlesque dancer, and member of the troupe "The Babes in Boinkland". She has displayed her talents at venues in MA, RI & NY. She opened the show at the first Great Boston Burlesque Expo, is a regular at the Jerkus Circus variety with the Steamy Bohemians, and opened for, and performed onstage with, Richard Cheese and Lounge Against the Machine. Machete’s performance style is “sometimes funny, sometimes evil, but always crazy!”
Harley Dear is a woman of many talents. After her Grammy-winning album that combined elements of Jazz and the Afterlife, "The Occultrane," Harley ghost-wrote several books about a young boy learning wizardry (Ms. Rowling's lawyers ask the book not be identified). She is also the five time winner of Murray Hill's Miss Galapagazanga Amateur Burlesque, a regular performer at the Duplex, and a resident artist with Luvley Rae's Spice Variety show.
Incredible Burlesque Dancer. More info to come.
The Blood Brothers
Musicians: The Communication Corporation
The Communication Corporation is a three piece explosion of bass, keytar and drums. The music is like attending a dirty dance party dj-ed by the Talking Heads and Devo with a carnival of space gypsies getting sweaty in the back. The shows are an experience getting the audiences involved with masks, audience percussion, costumed entourages (go-go dancers, balloonmen, hard working Americans, etc.) and a grab bag of theatrics. The Communication Corporation is not a bad corporation. It's not a good corporation. It's your corporation.
More to come, including: DJs, Comedy, and Much More!!
