Every Wednesday night, comedic host, Scot Nery, brings together a madcap ensemble of jugglers, comics, sword swallowers, acrobats, clowns, knife throwers, magicians, yo-yoers (yes, there is such a thing), contortionists and more.
Running for 126 weeks straight (with each show being unique), Scot Nery’s Boobie Trap hosts world class entertainers who sign on for a 4-minute slot on stage before they’re played off by the kick-ass house band.
On any given Wednesday you might see Chris Ruggerio juggling knives while balancing on a ball, or Nick Paul making bottles of wine appear out of thin air. Perhaps Bonnie Morgan contorting her body into a small glass box, or Mark Hayward using a yo-yo to remove objects from ears. Possibly you’ll witness the Steben Sisters gracefully synchronized and hanging by their toes from the ceiling, or you’ll experience the ridiculously funny Sethward who can delight and terrify you at the same time. You might even get to see Scot Nery crawl about on (and under) the stage with a screwdriver, making sure the stage is stable while the band’s bass player, Peter Hastings improvises silly songs. You’re very likely see Scot Nery fling himself about the stage while he does pushups, talks about raccoons, and balances objects on his chin. What I’m telling you is this: by the end of the evening your mind will be electrified, your face will hurt from over-smiling, and you’ll be eating snacks because…well, they throw them at you.
I highly recommend – truly the best variety act around town.
