The Seashore Variety Hour at Coney Island USA – August 1st, 2019

Steeplechase’s own ‘Funny Face’ (Brendan Schweda) the first to take the stage and introduce the show.

San Francisco based ‘chair stacking balance’ performer MeeZee hosted the evening with Coney Island based sword swallowing, aerialist Wendy Blades.

Featuring the other talents of Koo Koo The Bird Girl, Jelly the Clown and Rasutin’s Marionettes.

Koo Koo The Bird Girl started the show off with her wonderful eccentric act.

Koo Koo performed blind folded in an aerial hoop and was wonderful.

The Seashore Variety Hour had their clown act too! Jelly The Clown.

Jelly the Clown couldn’t seem to keep his red clown nose on so he nailed in to his skull.

Then Wendy Blades got dressed in a straight jacket (with the assistance of MeeZee) and escaped!

MeeZee introduced Matt Scott Rasputin and his charming sideshow marionettes.

The finesse of Matt Scott Rasputin’s control over these puppets was wonderful. Here is the sword swallower wetting the sword before it goes down the hatch.

The ‘tap dancing dandy’ was amazing in how he kept the beat with his music and tap shoes.

Wendy Blades swallowed the sword as MeeZee watches in astonishment.

MeeZee performs one of his ‘impossible’ hand balancing feats on the stacked chairs.

Wendy closed the show with a ‘fast’ aerial rope spinning act.
