Coney Events: Step Back To The 1930's

Slumming on the Coney Island boardwalk back in the 1930's was filled with an exuberant you can't find today. From the Marx Brothers, Gipsy Rose Lee, to your fill of amusement rides and sideshows. The Pinchbottom bothers and a few sisters brings you a sideshow extravaganza specially created for the Coney Island USA Sideshow by the Seashore.


From Coney Island USA:

When Hugo J. Porkenbush, house doctor to the Coney Island Sideshow, accidentally incapacitates all the performers, he has to find replacement acts -- and fast! So he recruits a pair of Boardwalk grifters (Nasto& Tiggo) to shanghai "volunteers" for the show. But when, instead of hapless victims, they abduct a bevy of burlesque performers from the Mermaid Parade, the show goes on... a lot further than anyone expected! Starring: NASTY CANASTA, JONNY PORKPIE, and TIGGER! as THE PINCH BROTHERS plus ALBERT CADABRA, DONNY VOMIT, GAL FRIDAY, JULIE ATLAS MUZ, LITTLE BROOKLYN
