The Accidental Circus On East Coast Tour


Press Release from the Accidental Circus:

The Accidental Circus On East Coast Tour in January, 2012

How do you celebrate your engagement and 10th anniversary in one year? If you’re fire eating jester Paolo Garbanzo and torch-singing belly dancer Onça O’Leary, you jump in your vardo with eight international vaudeville stars armed with spankin’ new acts of fame and fortune and bring the party to every town you meet.

Join The Accidental Circus for an evening of Darwinism in Action & Luscious Cabaret. Collaborators since 2002, they are once again on the warpath to hilarity, touring in January of 2012. As ever, this show promises danger and humor, beauty and song, and weird social commentary ~ all in the first act.

Accidental Circus, New Orleans, Mezmer Society

Starring:

Paolo Garbanzo, Jester of England’s Muncaster Castle.
Mab Just Mab, DC’s Own Sideshow Girl.
The Mezmer Society, Asheville, NC.
Sidetracked Theatre, Philadelphia, PA.
Darbuka Dave, Huntsville, AL.

Who:

Ringleader & Juggler extraordinaire Paolo Garbanzo, fresh from filming for his new reality TV series “World Wide Show-off”, is the first & only American to be an official Jester of a European castle. Touring Europe and the US year-round he presents original comedic material in three languages. Historical, hysterical, & interactive, Paulo leads the AC as Benevolent Dictator for Life.

Mab Just Mab, DC’s Sideshow Girl, combines artistry and human endurance. A glasswalker, escape artist, and world record holding blockhead, she is the tenured freak at DC’s notorious sideshow venue & museum, The Palace of Wonders. Mab has been featured in several documentaries and books on the sideshow revival, and is a pillar of the Cheeky Monkey Sideshow.

The Mezmer Society demonstrates to the general public that, after a 60 year hiatus, it is once more permissible to dance to an accordion. Hard-riding highwaymen of mayhem, they missionize the Mezmer gospel throughout the States. Bellydance, torchsongs, & sinister accordionism are blended at high speed into a tall, cool, glass of delicious & intoxicating performance.

Sidetracked’s two-woman bowls the crowd over with high-integrity, rapid-fire, two-person comedic storytelling. They’re rejuvenate the classic Vaudeville genre… with badass sensibility.

Darbuka Dave is the Juggernaut of Comedy, a genetic freak, & a brilliant percussionist who travels the country, teaching & performing to thrilled & nauseated audiences of every caliber.

Bring your loved ones to dazzle them. Bring your enemies because, well, anything is possible when 5 knives are in the air.
