Beacher's Madness Looks For Permanent Venue in Miami
When Kelly Osbourne was in Miami last month, she wasn't just cracking open her head and spending time in Mercy Hospital. She may have been scouting locations for the freaky sideshow Beacher's Madhouse.
Osbourne is the show's creative director and partner to creator Jeff Beacher. The two have been spotted in Miami, reportedly looking for a permanent venue for Beacher's Madness, according to Scene in the Tropics.
Currently housed in Hollywood's Roosevelt Hotel, Beacher's Madness is a variety show with a special focus on the vertically-challenged. It boasts a Tiny KISS cover band, Oompa Loompas, and Mini Lady Gaga in addition to circus curios such as sword swallowers and tight-rope walkers.
The freak show landed at LIV last year in a special event hosted by David Arquette and showman/comedian/creator Beacher. The stage was filled with dancing Ommpa Loompas, pink gorillas, and a sweaty Arquette clutching a Pee-Wee Herman doll. Check out World Red Eye's gallery from the night here.
Why is this big news? Because Beacher's a refreshing option in an otherwise stale club scene. Plus, wherever Beacher's Madness lands, the B-list celebrities will follow. As Lesley Abravanel writes, "Small folk and enormous egos. Sounds perfect for Miami."
