Dead Man’s Carnival

Dead Man’s Carnival is a Nationally touring Milwaukee based Live music variety show. The show Combines our love for turn of the century Vaudeville with the uncompromising passion of the Do-it-yourself underground punk rock community. Acting as more than just an evening of entertainment, we create a time and place for unusual displays that would otherwise have no place to bloom. The show is presented in a format that emphasizes crowd interaction, improvisation, and inner group collaboration. With a rotating cast of dozens of performers from all over the country we are writing the next chapter in Wisconsin’s long Circus legacy.
