Default Something Freaky @ the Capital Fringe Festival

The very first Capital Fringe Festival will be taking place from July 20 - 30, in Washington, DC. If you're familiar with the Edinburgh Fringe Festival (or the NY ro Philly), then you know what an amazing event this promises to be.

I will be performing as part of Cheeky Monkey Sideshow in "Beautiful Freaks and Feats of Wonder" for four performances on the 23rd, 25th, 26th and 29th at the Warehouse Theater. (Info and full schedule here and here)

Who are Cheeky Monkey Sideshow? Glad you asked--

Ladies and Gentlemen, prepare for a full-frontal assault on your better judgment! Witness fantastic feats of physical transcendence; sword swallowing, fire eating, magic, contortion, the cruel bed of nails, a human oddity of the strangest kind, and more! Grotesque and graceful. Beautiful and bizarre. Every show is different, every act unique.

Cheeky Monkey Sideshow is the Washington, DC area's first and only professional theatrical sideshow. Experience live theater of the rarest kind: You'll be right there on the edge of the stage, on the edge of your seat. You will see the gleam of three feet of steel as it disappears down the sword swallower's throat. You will feel the heat of the flames from the fire eater's torches. You will hear the gasps of the people around you. You will be entertained by a group of performers with more than 85 years of combined talent and experience. You won't believe it's real, but it is!

Cheeky Monkey Sideshow! You'll be amazed. You'll be amused. You'll be just a little grossed out.

You can buy advanced tickets at the Capital Fringe ticket page, and tickets will be available at the venue 1 hour before show time (cash only).

The Capital Fringe Festival is going to be a truly outstanding event and we are really looking forward to being part of it.

And you can be part of it, too! Tickets are already selling--don't miss your chance.

Hope to see you there,
