Bull Skit Comedy’s Freakshow Fundraiser is coming up in Red Deer on July 9

In the words of the late, great David Bowie: Turn and face the strange.

Bull Skit Comedy’s Dark Carnival: Freakshow Fundraiser is coming to Bo’s Bar and Stage on Saturday, July 9th, from 6 p.m.

“Step right up and experience a strange, one-of-a-kind spectacle,” say organizers. “We invite you to pull back the curtain to reveal the secrets hidden behind the Bull Skit Big Top.”

Thirty featured artists are ready to transport audience members into an immersive experience with games, stage acts, circus performances and more.

Highlights include “tortured” improvised performances by Bull Skit Comedy, as well as the Indigo Circus from Calgary, The Forum of Red Deer and vocals by Dom Benzer.

This freak show fundraiser promises to send shivers “right down to your funny bone,” proving the arts are alive and well in Red Deer.

Admissions proceeds will support Bull Skit Comedy’s 15th season and the company’s mission to create “a community at play.”

The main attraction starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $50 for this “evening of terrortainment,” and include a Troubled Monk beverage. Please visit Eventbrite and Bo’s Bar and Stage website for more information.
