The Southern Sideshow Hootenanny says
From working acts to human oddities, female performers have always been an intergral part of the sideshow business. The Women in Sideshow: Panel Discussion aims to discuss our past, present and future as performers and professionals. Topics will include the responsibilities of teaching the next generation, difficulties faced by women in the insdustry, and other relevant industry issues. Discussion will be followed by an audience Q&A. Open to all.

Panelists will include:

Alex Doll: Meet the deviously dainty carnival darling, Alex Doll! Hailing from Washington, DC, this dynamic damsel runs Atomic Doll Productions, where she has created high-profile sideshow experiences for clients such as Ripley's Believe It Or Not, Shocked and Amazed, Fox and ABC. She has performed on ABC7, Monster Madhouse TV, at Ripley's Believe It Or Not and in night clubs and comic book shops all over the United States to the delight and cringe-worthy swooning of her audiences. Ms. Doll currently serves as a textual maven and oddities nurse for Shocked and Amazed: On and Off the Midway and as a journalist for Huffington Post: Weird News.

Boobzilla: Witnessing The Amazing Boobzilla in action is more than just dangerous stunts and wacky adventures. It’s a laugh a minute thrill ride that has been seen on AMC’s FREAKSHOW, truTV’s Full Throttle Saloon, Adam Pearson: Freak Show - BBC Three, and Nickelodeon’s What Would You Do? Boobzilla's "hurricane of energy” can be seen demonstrating unique talents ranging from strait jacket escapes to breaking concrete using ONLY her massive breasts! Think you've seen it all? Not till you've experienced Boobzilla!
