If you’re tired of the same old “dinner and a movie” date night, we’d like you to meet Lazlo and Lady Riggy, also known as Schadenfreude Circus. These two self-described “normal people with abnormal jobs” bring old-school circus sideshow to the masses. Intrigued? In their own words,
“we live and travel the country, performing at fairs, nightclubs and other special events, setting up and tearing down in the blink of an eye. With a flash of glitter and the spark of a lighter, you might not know we were even there if not for the sinking feeling of ‘Is that even humanly possible?’ etched into your mind.
When not performing as The Schadenfreude Circus, we can be found playing house with Wallenda and Gonzo the ball pythons, Boa Fett the St. Lucia boa constrictor and Poobah the miniature schnauzer who is an obedience school dropout but excellent at three card monte.”
We are overjoyed to have them join us for Unleashed: Pilots, Puppies and Pasties at the Met Room on Feb. 18. They promise to spice up an already sizzling evening with some marvelous feats guaranteed to delight you. We hope you can join us, because proceeds from this show will benefit Pilots to the Rescue, an org that helps save animals from euthanasia.
