Weirdos Freaks Wackos and Creeps Anti-Social Club!

You heard it here first, folks!

In the year 2020, it will be 20 years of your FreakShow Deluxe!!

From the 2001 premiere (inauspicious in every way) with two guys and a handful of stunts entertaining crowds waiting to get into the PsychoPath Haunted Trail at the Caesar’s Ford Amphitheater Park just outside Xenia, Ohio – we did not even have a name for it, then – to now. 20 years. A Platinum Anniversary!

Obviously – there are gifts to get, plans to make, speeches being worked on right now…

So much to do and it seems like so little time – though there is time, and we are allowing ourselves to take it.

The current plan (such as it is), is to spend the year celebrating. Technically, though, we do not turn 20 until October of 2020 – however, we do not see ANY reason not to celebrate the whole year celebrating. We are working on booking extensive tour dates now, talking about relaunching our musical, Flawedville, a FreakShow Family Show tour, plus some other fun stuff! AND, of course, special anniversary merchandise as well!!!

Get ready for the 20th Anniversary of the Gathering of the Juggalos!

While all that is going on, we have what we are already scheduled to do. Your FreakShow Deluxe is gathering a special group to head to the 20th Anniversary of the Gathering of the Juggalos!!! At a new place, with some new performers, AND we are actually going to be opening for Insane Clown Posse‘s special event on Saturday, before the concert!!

Add that to our scheduled return to the Delta Fair & Music Festival in Memphis, TN this summer, several amusement parks scheduled for Halloween, a few other shows cocked locked & ready to rock, AND continued performances at Beetle House LA with an amazing array of characters and performers – AND the upcoming Hollywood Burlesque Festival!!! OH MY!!!

Do not miss a moment of what is coming in 2019 & 2020!

15 Years of FreakShow Deluxe

It’s been 15 years since FreakShow Deluxe really got started. What a long, strange road it has been!

Since the early days of FSD – just two guys and a handful of stunts, entertaining the queue of a haunted attraction in Ohio – to opening our own venue in Hollywood, expanding our numbers and talent of performers, getting awards & accolades, producing shows all over the country (as well as taking some of our performers worldwide), having multiple shows performing simultaneously in various cities while we are on the road…

Just so much great stuff!

Today is October 30, 2016 – and we have been getting lots of pings from our Facebook’s Timehop all day (as it has ALL month long). Some of those pings from this month include:

  • FSD on the stage of the OC Marketplace’s annual Halloween event (with Reverend Tommy Gunn as the Grand Marshal of the Hearse Procession) in 2011.
  • The time FSD drove INTO a hurricane to perform at an event in Florida!
  • Five years of performing at Hollywood’s Magic Castle’s Halloween Week – the first show of its kind and one of the first non-member/non-magic groups ever to perform there. What an honor! PLUS we got to hang out with Marilyn Manson, Bono, Neil Patrick Harris, The Scorpions, and many more famous folks!
  • Our pictures showing up in the LA Weekly and OC Weekly papers for our shows and events.
  • The Black Hills Tattoo Show – in Deadwood, SD!
  • We’ve been at amusement parks: Carowinds, Kings Dominion, Cedar Fair, Elitch Gardens, Frontier City, plus FSD’s Kitty Karloff was at Knott’s Scary Farm.
  • Getting hired by Maroon 5 to perform two years in a row at their Halloween bash at the Hollywood Forever cemetery!
  • That time we were at the Virginia State Fair

There has just been SO much we have done in the past 15 years! The list above is just a tiny segment of things from this month — it does not include everything…

We have introduced the LA Skeleton Crew, the Voodoo Krewe, and the Coffin Crew. We are co-executive producers of The Southern Sideshow Hootenanny. Our own line of coffee, cigars and, soon, hot sauce (from Hella Hot Hot Sauce). Whew!

All this year, your FSD is going to be doing a LOT of celebrating. Honestly, we have just been SO busy, it’s been hard to add more things. Hope you will come along for the ride!

See, it’s true. Reverend Tommy Gunn was Grand Marshal of the Hearse Procession. There’s just no living with him now – he’s NEVER come down from this high.
