Tinderbox Circus Sideshow
Captain Darron & Trashique established Tinderbox in 2010, and have a solid, permanent cast of performers. Tinderbox consists of several award-winning performance artists in the fields of sideshow and burlesque, as well as a variety of working acts, girlie shows, vaudeville debauchery, circus tradition, and moonshine-induced madness!
Our show is suitable for all venues and any audience. We pride ourselves on our versatility and flexibility.
We specialize in a wide array of feats, from the classic circus side tent (The Human Blockhead, Glass Walking, the Bed of Nails, Fire Eating, etc.) to modernized twists (The Human Pincushions, The Human Crazy Straw, Body Piercing Weight Lifting, etc.) or daredevilish stunts (Balancing on Wine Glasses, Straight-Jacket Escapes, etc.) to our own original creations (The Knife Song, Hillbilly Mysticism, etc.)!
We have performed on two self-produced tours in 2015, The Dirty Squirty Circus Tour from New Orleans to Asheville and The Big Bad Tinderbox Circus Sideshow Road Show (Show), which spanned 11 states in the Midwest and South!
We’ve opened for the Dresden Dolls (2010) & Beats Antique (2013). We’ve also toured on Funny or Die’s Oddball Comedy Tour, & the Mason Dixie Burlesque Tour. We have appeared at Circus Aquatic with Freaksheaux to Geaux (2014), Shamelessly Hot! events in Columbia-SC (2013-present), The Vaudevillain Revue’s “Under the Sea” (2014), as well as several festivals (which are listed below). We’ve also performed at countless haunted attractions, tattoo-gaming-& steampunk conventions, as well as fairgrounds! We frequently share the stage with multiple sideshow groups, burlesque troupes, bands, and other artists in music venues, theatres, and festivals all over the country!
