Adult fun at JJ's Bohemia with Subterranean Cirqus
Come one, come all! Chattanooga’s very own Subterranean Cirqus welcomes the Winter Whimsy Tour to JJ’s Bohemia on Jan. 21, along with special guests Lon Eldridge and Dalton Chapman of the 9th Street Stompers.
Billing themselves as a “whimsical combination of sideshow, burlesque and comedy,” the tour has amassed a lengthy resume of high-profile gigs including stints with Louis C.K., Sarah Silverman, Troma, Cut Throat Freakshow and Humboldt Circus. Now, for one night only, the tour comes to the Scenic City with Scarlett Storm (the “silliest woman in sideshow and burlesque” ) at the helm.
Joining her will be juggler Mikey Man Gorilla, the world’s most unsuccessful banana wrangler; aerialist Smurfasaur, who is billed as “the clumsiest woman in showbiz”…at least until she inverts and becomes a picture of grace. The troupe is rounded out by Ajaye LyckDyke, the King and Queen of Queer Burlesque, a sultry siren who also happens to be a bearded lady and self-styled “andro sex kitten.”
The sweetly demented children of the Subterranean Cirqus will, of course, be up to their own bizarre brand of tomfoolery and skylarkings and Lon and Dalton will be providing the musical portion of the evening’s festivities. All in all it will be a night that makes “American Horror Story: Freak Show” look like “Captain Kangaroo” and for a mere $10 ticket you too can bear witness to the sort of spectacle that terrifies people you wouldn’t want to hang out with anyway.
