Smart Bets: Squirm Burpee Circus

The Squirm Burpee Circus is a cartoony, over-the-top “vaudevillian melodrama” complete with slapstick comedy, daredevil juggling and a host by the name of Baron Vegan von Hamburger. According to a press release, “the show features an eye-catching cast and a beautiful, Cirque du Soleil-like aesthetic, with high-energy acts such as the Human Cannon, the Ladder of Love and chainsaw juggling, along with classic comedy routines, hilarious romantic antics and more.” Catch the show at the John W. Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center at Western Carolina University on Sunday, March 2, at 5 p.m. $20 adults/$15 WCU staff/ $5 students and children. 227-2479 or
