Coney Events: American Heroes Tour


Courtesy of Coney Island USA
The end of the summer season is nearing but it’s not slowing down. The Summer Variety Show has Adam RealMan again thrilled to bring the Coney Island Variety Show back to the stage at Sideshows by the Seashore , and this month he pays tribute to Elvis Presley in a ‘King Sized' extravaganza!

From the Coney Island USA website:
A wacky array of talented variety artists will honor Elvis just one day shy of the 35th anniversary of his untimely death, performing routines around the music, the personality and the eating habits of this legendary entertainer.
For the second year in a row, the Coney Island Variety Show will host Clownvis Presley, the only Elvis impersonating clown who’s appeared on America’s Got Talent. Expect giveaways and prizes from the Schmaltz Brewing Company and Norton Records. Featured performers: Aerialist: Rebekah Burke Juggler: Kyle Petersen Fire Eater: Insectavora The Elvis impersonating clown: Clownvis Presley
With special Elvis séance by star of the off Broadway hit ‘Spook Show’: Cardone
Hosted by that zany duo you all know and love, Adam RealMan and Kryssy Kocktail.
