© Red Light Variety Show, 2012

"Circus folk, misfits of all varieties, free thinkers, entertainers, gypsies, and acrobats—artists of all forms from every walk of life."

Conceived in 2008 The Red Light Variety Show is a contemporary vaudevillian cabaret comprised of entertainers who call Boise their home. Sewing together snippets from circus arts, clowning, acrobatics, aerial arts, and comedy we piece them together to create a spectacular quilt of entertainment for both adult and family friendly audiences. 


Red Light creates and produces three, original burlesque based variety shows each year and in addition has performed for Primus's Circus oddities tour, Carnevale, 208 Tattoo fest, Rocky Mountain Awards, Boise's Sesqui-centenial, Curb Cup, Raw, Modern's patio entertainment series, and many more.
