El Circo Cheapo Cabaret
El Circo Cheapo Cabaret is Chicago’s very own collection of world class circus performers. Each show might feature a variety of acrobats, jugglers, puppeteers, aerialists, clowns, sideshow freaks and more. Founded by aerialist Shayna Swanson in 2008, El Circo Cheapo has become the everyday person’s affordable gateway to the circus arts.From aerial artists soaring on trapeze, hat juggling spectacles a la Charlie Chaplin, audience members attempting to catch potatoes with a fork strapped to their crotch, El Circo Cheapo embodies the innovation of the new circus movement, the daring of the traditional circus, and the joy and comedy of the vaudeville era. Each El Circo Cheapo show is hosted by comedian and ring mistress Cameron Esposito and for these special tent performances opening music will be provided by the Lonesome Organist.
