There’s one more present under the tree this Holiday season, as Scary Ben and Darlinda Just Darlinda bring their special brand of Absurdity back home for the Holidays!! What sort of Absurdity? A Spectacle of Absurdity. Joining us for the special show in Oklahoma City is another Okie Native, and Internationally known living Sideshow legend, the one and only Donny Vomit!!!!
For your consideration, we present what has been called, and the “antidote to wholesome” and “A Carnival of Chaos”! A Burlesque cabaret and celebration of the Abstract and the Surreal!! Our brand of Cabaret and Burlesque has been heavily tempered by the alluring influence of the inspiring worlds of Circus, Sideshow, Drag and bizarre performance art (not the shitty kind we all think of when we hear the words “performance art”), blended together to create a unique show of silly and profound.
That’s right dear friends and fellow Okies, we request that you join us as we dig deep into the vast mindscapes that inhabit our heads to find the weird, wild, raunchy and exuberant filth and present it is a wonderfully bizarre sort of way. It’s gonna be a fun time.
We can promise you Boobs!
… and More!!
