Mab Just Mab - Sideshow

Mab Just Mab combines artistry and pain to create hilarious & compelling entertainment. A glasswalker and blockhead, escape artist and ukulele fanatic, she is a tenured freak at DC’s notorious sideshow venue & museum, The Palace of Wonders. Mab has as been featured in several documentaries and books on the sideshow revival, and performs solo, with The Accidental Circus, and as a pillar of the Cheeky Monkey Sideshow.

In the realm of the extraordinary, one artist stands out. Mab has performed all over this country, touring fairs, festivals, and alleyways across the US. She boasts a performing career that has spanned over 18 years. She has worked with artists and dancers not only as a musician and performer, but as someone who enables others to realize their dreams of performance.

In her travels, Mab has been fortunate enough to cross paths and study with some of the greatest ethnic folk percussionists: Daveed (of Turku), Susu Pampanin, Suhail Kasper, Seido Salifoski, Kevin Hartnell, Raquy Danziger, and many more! With a wide spectrum of talents, music to dance, comedy and sideshow, Mab has constantly focused on one thing, making a good show.

Mab is: Winner of the 2012 Americana Burlesque & Sideshow Festival’s Artist of the Year, Member of the award winning Cheeky Monkey Sideshow, Winner (via the Cheeky Monkey Sideshow) of the Circus Historical Society’s Candlelight Award, World Record holder for Blockhead, Co-Founder and Assistant Director of the nationally touring Accidental Circus, and the Founder of DCVariety Social Aide Society
