The Michigan J. Frog of Burlesque!

Also an avid curator of high-end lowbrow entertainment, she has recently co-produced such delights as Make It Clapton: a Burlesque Tribute to Your Dad's Favorite Music, and Conspiratease 2: Burly-QAnon!

Circus Clown Gone Horribly Wrong
Jim Dandy got his performance debut in Madison Square Garden with the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus as their beloved punk rock clown. Sporting bondage pants, a leather jacket, and trademark green chaos spiked wig, he performed for 5 years as a travelling clown where he appeared on numerous news channels, commercials, a video game, and newspapers. During that time his performance style was described as "oblique" "zany" and "would make Sid Vicious die a second death." Sidenote: he is fairly certain he's the only one in Ringling history who had the phrase "getting pussy" in a media hit. Since then he's brought his unique blend of vaudevillian punk rock charm to his ancestral homeland of Washington DC where he co-produces the quarterly variety brunch show "Yolks on You" and stars in Elvis' Birthday Fight Club, America The Game Show: Fuck Yeah!, Otakon, Anime USA, Festival of Doom, ABSFest, and much more! Jim Dandy will do anything for a laugh and this is shown as he cavorts and capers while juggling, tap dancing, fire eating, whip cracking, telling jokes, performing classic sideshow stunts, and more; sometimes all in one act!
A modern-day mama motivated by movement to heavy metal.
Morrigan has been dancing since she moshed into this world 39 years ago. From her earliest days in ballet, tap and jazz, she found true love in bellydance in the summer of 2004—mainly because no pointe shoes or leotards were required and she could eat more than carrots and water. She has trained with some of the best there is in fusion bellydance (shout out to Rachel Brice, Zoe Jakes, Na'la, and Unmata) and has graced the stages in such amazing places, like New Jersey and Tennessee. Also Costa Rica.
