Jerkus Circus, also known as "Jerk du Soleil," is the award winning campy cabaret show that will steal your heart, your wallet, and probably make out with your girlfriend. Called “haute vaudeville” by the Boston Phoenix, and named "Best Nouvelle Vaudeville" in their Best of 2009 readers poll, Jerkus Circus has an irreverent and individualistic charm. Founded in 2005, the show is widely considered to have pioneered the current NeoVaudeville movement in Boston. It's traveled through Boston, New York, Providence, and Worcester. Featuring wildly diverse performance artists, uniquely hilarious comedic acts, pasties, drug references, and all your favorite swear words. Created, produced, and hosted by The Steamy Bohemians. Watch us channel the gods of chaos! Our struggle will seem effortless. What song will Lainey forget how to play? What will Niki pull out of her boobs? There's only one way to find out. Come see hilarious comedians, scary weirdos, sexy dancing, and fabulous music.
"Oddball sexuality and a slaphappy caboodle of raw talent makes JERKUS CIRCUS a fantasyland for creepster hipsters, horny carnies, art fags, fart hags, and connoisseurs of real-deal performance art that's fueled by a few puffs on a unicorn bong. The Steamy Bohemians' bi-curious variety show has featured the sweet cream of Boston's artistic crop." - Boston Phoenix Best of 2009, Winners of the Best Nouveau Vaudeville category
"Good ole fashion vaudeville acts are a mighty rare occurrence, with the city's highfalutin' intelligentsia demanding more than just a simple tambourine dance, some blackface and a performance of the song "Uncle Grunty's Shoeless Jig. Let's just say that in the revolutions of art there comes a time for renaissance, when the avant-garde becomes too much and we must once again return to the core of what is known as pure—or as they say—"make it new." Friday sees the consummate rebirth of entertainment variety as The Lizard Lounge in Cambridge gives host to Jerkus Circus, a freewheeling whirlwind of freaks, feminism and fart-jokes hosted by hometown heroes The Steamy Bohemians. Offensive? Low-brow? Sultry, salacious and scatological? You bet your bottom dollar. It's been known to intrude on one's deepest reserves of sexual inhibition, blow a hole in the side of the tank and let flow all the milky goodness of hedonistic indulgence that a human can possibly expunge in one evening. Half-naked ladies with classically trained soprano voices singing songs about kissing cousins and bastard children all the while pulling strange things out from between their breasts? Done and done. Welcome to the new vaudeville." - Boston's Weekly Dig
