Clown Magic Performing Arts Sideshow Southern Sideshow Hootenanny Variety Arts Vaudevisuals Interview

Vaudevisuals interview with Geoff With A G.

I had a chance to sit down with Geoff with AG and talk about his performance life in sideshow and how he got to be involved. It is quite a story! The performance he was preparing for was at The Southern Sideshow Hootenanny at Cafe Istanbul in New Orleans.

Along with Geoff performing his mentalist act on Sunday 3/8 was his pal Skabz The Clown. Below I have captured Skabz The Clown juggling in slow motion. Not sure what happened with my camera but this is what I got. I love it!
