The Dr. Diabolic Traveling Roadshow & Fun-Time Variety Hour has its second run at the Phoenix Art Museum this Friday, August 3, and this time the not-so-good Doctor will be bringing the B’s – as in Becky B, burlesque, brains and a zombie boogie-brigade. It’s going to be more fun than you can shake a Cyclotrode at.
The August edition of the unconventional variety hour will include:
- The Crimson Ghost – Witness some of the most overly-dramatic fight sequences ever captured on film in the second cliff-hanging episode of this 1940s film serial. A criminal mastermind, known as The Crimson Ghost, is out to steal the Cyclotrode; a device which can short-circuit all electrical current on the planet. Can he be stopped in time? Prepare to perch on the edge of your seat!
- Thrill The World – The Phoenix Valley: Thrill the World dancers will perform their signature Michael Jackson “Thriller’ routine while simultaneously frightening and delighting the crowd.
- Brain Eating Contest – Contestants will be hand-picked to compete against each other in a mad-dash to devour Jell-O cerebrum snacks. It’s a competitive eating contest that gives new meaning to phrase “brain-food.”
- Provocatease – This neo-burlesque Vaudevillian cabaret act will perform with saucy burlesque starlets and dancing dames in a routine created especially for the Dr. Diabolic show.
The show will be emceed by Dr. Diabolic and female illusionist and fellow cult-film host, the sassy Becky B. There will be a bar outside of the Phoenix Art Museum’s Whiteman Hall venue and attendees are encouraged to come early and enjoy a refreshing beverage before the show.
The fun starts at 7:00 p.m. and is open to ages 16 and over. Museum admission is complimentary, but tickets to the variety show event are $15 and will be available at the entrance to Whiteman Hall – or you can purchase you tickets online HERE.
