The Great Dubini
At the tender age of 7 Gregory Dubin saw a magician remove all of the colors from a coloring book with the simple wave of his hand. That night young Gregory went home and tried to repeat what he had seen with his own coloring book. He could not do it.
Then, after years of study and practice, he could. So he changed his name to The Great Dubin and the rest is history.
Among others, Dubini has performed regularly at Ripley's Believe It or Sideshow of Wonders, The Love Show NYC, with the wildly popular off-Broadway hit Sleep No More, and in his own magic variety show The Mystique Boutique. He's a magician, an actor, and has consulted on several off broadway shows that needed a little magic in their lives.
A professional and award-winning comedy sideshow magician, Cadabra delivers powerful, amazing and devilishly wild magic and sideshow stunts. He has entertained people from China to Coney Island, concert halls to intimate private parties. He is extremely funny, classy, astonishing and above all, amazingly entertaining. A staple of New York's burlesque scene, Albert's unique abilities include eating razor blades and a 3 foot long balloon, hammering 6 inch spikes into his face, electrocuting himself with 20,000 volts of electricity, and turning his assistant into a gorilla. He makes people and animals appear and disappear at will and escapes from chains, shackles, locked crates and straight jackets all with the flair, style, class, and great sense of humor you would expect from a seasoned, professional sideshow magician.
Born and raised in Russia, Ekaterina began performing at the age of five as a rhythmic gymnast eventually joining the Russian National team.

The Sword Swallowing Clown

They performing in theaters, festivals, museums, and concert hall around the world. Jellboy has hosted Coney Island Rockabilly festival, he was a featured performer in Ripley's Believe It or Not's Sideshow of Wonders and he has produced Philadelphia's wildly successful Carnivolution for the past 10 years.
Magic Brian has been entertaining young and old since he first discovered that it was funny to pretend to walk into a door. Having always had an unhealthy interest in magic and been given the name Magic Brian, it was only natural for him to pursue it as a career. Magic Brian has enjoyed performing his unique style of comedy-magic and sideshow for all types of audiences around the world and will continue to do so until the authorities drag him away.
