Gilded Lily Burlesque and The Carny Preacher Productions present “THE CARNIVALESQUE ROADSHOW”, a spectacle of Burlesque, Circus & Sideshow premiering during the 6th Annual Festival of DOOM in Columbia, SC at STAGE 5 THEATRE on JANUARY 17, 2014 at 10pm. 

Harkening back to a bygone era of dust bowl circuses & traveling sideshows, The Carnivalesque Roadshow stars international cabaret legend Armitage Shanks, The Carny Preacher, Burlesque Hall of Fame’s 2012 “King of Boylesque” Russell Bruner, “Baltimore’s Sicilian Queen” Maria Bella, Sideshow phenom, “Pain Proof Girl” Mab Just Mab, comedian and sideshow geek, Swami YoMahmi, aerial artistry by Deanna Danger, the burlesque delights of Gilded Lily’s Gigi Holliday, “The Ambassador of Skin”, Cherie Sweetbottom,  member of Philadelphia’s Peek-a-Boo Revue and “Strong Woman”, Kelli LiMone, as well as a bevy of buxom beauties and handsome hunks plying their trade at the The Carnivalesque Roadshow Cooch Tent & along Mab’s Midway. 

Far more than your run-of-the-mill burlesque or nightclub event, The Carnivalesque Roadshow offers an immersive experience into the enticing world of acrobats, freaks, roustabouts, barkers, dandies and women of questionable virtue.  

Try your hand at games of skill on the Midway! 

Be shocked & amazed by oddities inside our “Ten-In-One”!  

Witness the libidinous temptations of the dance of forbidden vice!

Hear dark tales of extraordinary madness whispered into the ears of fallen maidens! Thrill to lithe sensuality of aerial artistry and athletic aplomb!

Enjoy the twist & turns of flexible comedic contortion!

Step Right Up!  All who enter will be transformed!
