From Nate Puppets on The Ventriloquist Dummy of the Future:

I've scoured the globe and country looking for the weirdest acts to add to my cavalcade of madness. My whole life has been spent trying to find new and interesting acts to bring to an audience a world they have never seen before, and now dear friends and neighbors, I feel I have done that. Join me! As I show you creatures never seen by a large crowd, things you're not supposed to see, or know about, even something I myself have risked my, and lives of countless human beings, animals and plants just to bring to you, for your laughter and entertainment. What is it I bring you? What are these weird creatures I speak of, am I just a no good grifter who comes to spread lies? I guess you'll have to come find out!

Flying Catastrophe Circus:

Contortion! Acrobatics! Juggling! Hoop diving! Fantastic feats of physical fabulousness! Amazing acts of balance and imagination! This rag tag crew of circus artists bring you a show overflowing with laughter, action, and thrill. This non-stop, talent-packed, 35-minutes of fun brings you a glimpse into the exciting world of circus and asks you to spend an afternoon of child-like wonder with us as we create, imagine, and explore. Quirky and tantalizing, Flying Catastrophe Circus brings you comedic circus storytelling at its finest.

This includes the kick-off party/benefit for Sly Grog, scheduled for Sunday, January 16th. The new date for the SlyGrog Benefit at LEAF Global Arts is March 6th.

Tickets can be bought through the Asheville Fringe Arts Festival website starting January 1st.
