Shocked & Amazed: Strange for Hire

with Francis Menotti

A variety show of the oddest persuasion, Shocked and Amazed, in partnership with Atomic Doll Productions, returns to AMP with a brand new performance—Strange for Hire. Join gentleman oddity Mr. Donny V, bad girl of Broadway Frankie Sin, and others for an event that invites you to step into the bizarre world of circus, sideshow, vaudeville, and burlesque. These daring darlings put on a show that includes everything from sword-swallowing and ventriloquism to burlesque and feats of brute strength extraordinaire. It’s an evening of the most delightfully unusual entertainment money can buy!

Not many magicians are invited to give a TED talk. Francis Menotti recently spoke at the TEDxPENN conference at the University of Pennsylvania where he shared his unique philosophy on magic and why he believes it is better as entertainment for adults than for children. Menotti is not your conventional magician; he stumped Penn & Teller on Penn & Teller: Fool Us and has performed at Presidential Inaugural Balls. In fact, Teller remarked that Menotti’s unique style and approach to audiences is “the future of magic.”

Please note there is a limited menu for this performance.
