Hoot2020 – Troupe Night – Sunday Night 3/8/2020

The last night of the Southern Sideshow Hootenanny in New Orleans. (A ‘family’ friendly show) Quite a few different types of acts in the evening’s lineup. The VIP show at 6:15 pm was Geoff with A G and Skabz the Clown.

Geoff with A G started the evening off with a rat trap released on his eyelid!

With the assistance of Sweet Pepper Klopek to tie on his blindfold, he began to perform his mentalism act. Featuring a card reading with a blindfold. However, the cards were attached to rat traps.

Sweet Pepper Klopek guided his hand to the place that would be the card he ‘mentally’ selected. All the traps were set except the one with the card he selected.

Sharing the VIP show with Geoff was Skabz the Clown.

After pushing a plastic fork up his nose he was kind enough to accept an audience volunteer to remove it.

After a few more stunts he finished his act with a juggling routine.

The main show beginning at 7 pm was The Troupe Night. Hosted by Left Lucy.

Rabbi Ribeye was lost in time after just waking from a nap. He wandered onto the stage and introduced the Cheeky Monkey Sideshow.

Valerie Voxx climbs the dangerous sword ladder.

Rabbi Ribeye performs a magic trick for the audience.

Mab Just Mab performs an incredible fire-eating routine.

Sally Cinch shows off her amazing waist dimensions!

The next act was The Brides’ Pixie Grit Circus Sideshow from Brooklyn, NY. Lefty Lucy introduced the duo.

Trained in aerial and acrobatics and sideshow skills as well they performed many different routines.

The last but not the least act for the night was The Stolen Stitches from Pittsburgh.

Danger Dave attaches a rat trap to his groin (Censored – Family Show)as Clawdette Sm Sm holds the ‘Censored’ sign.

Entering the stage in a silver space suit Charlie Thargic had a lovely stage aura and skills to back that up.

Performing the classic sideshow ‘eye hook’ routine with a flying saucer attached to the chains hanging from her eyes.

Clawdette Sm Sm proved once again that what goes in the nose can come out the mouth.

Charlie Thargic was the body that laid on top of the bed of nails on wheels and became the substitute bowling ball knocking down the pins set up for her.

The cast of sideshow performers took the curtain call for the last night of the Hootenanny! Kali von Wunderkammer “Thanked The Audience” for their support of the weekend festivities.
