Dateline: 1938! After shutting down NY’s striptease shows, an ambitious city official turns his prudish attentions to Coney Island, scheming to terminate the 10-in-1, the thrill rides, the midway games, and everything else the People’s Playground is famous for! It’s up to the Flim Flam Sideshow's house doctor, a boardwalk grifter, and a suspiciously silent merchant of wieners to thwart the pernicious politico … with burlesque! Classic comedy meets carny meets the ol' bump-n-grind in this burlesque tribute to the Marx Brothers starring JONNY PORKPIE as the Groucho, LADY SCOUTINGTON as the Chico, TIGGER! as the Harpo, plus AUDREY LOVE (5/24), JO WELDON, PEEKABOO POINTE (5/25 & 5/26), SUSIE DAHL, Sideshows By The Seashore alumni MAT FRASER, Miss Coney Islands GIGI BONBON and Miss FRANKIE ELEANOR, and more! This new madcap frolic in the Marxian vein kicks off the Burlesque at the Beach 2024 season with an unprecedented 3 night run as part of MarxFest 2024.  

As Harpo  — who made his stage debut in Coney Island! — said: "Burlesque is a legitimate form of show business. It’s the audience that perverts it."
