Circus Finelli (SF) Nov 7-16
San Francisco, Ca. – Circus Finelli returns to Stage Werx after a sold out run last May. They present a Slavic slapstick cabaret with daring comedy and dangerous cutlery.
A one hour show of Circus Comedy fraught with mishap, sparkles, and sound effects. Come for sights to entice and delight: juggling, cows, contortion, dance and disaster.
Circus Finelli is interactive, bright fun. The â€œSlapstick Slavic Cabaretâ€ is adult humor with kid sound effects. The show is infused with live music and sounds of the Circus: accordion and ukulele, trombone, crash cymbals and slide whistles. Come early for face-painting and games.
Your host at a Circus Finelli show is man-hungry ringmistress MadameVinaigrette (Verka Zaskodna). She is the Czech juggling bombshell with dangerous plans. She can joke with the audience in seven different languages. Her musical assistant and assailant is accordionista Luz (Luz Gaxiola). Carmelita (Molly Shannon) is the samba diva of a million costumes. And last is Pepito, exploding from all corners. “The Great Alecko; Strongest Man on Earth”, will be appearing in the United States exclusively with Circus Finelli. known in Greece as â€œa demi-godâ€, Alecko will amaze audiences with
his impossible feats of strength.
